Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has threatened that his club will not send his players for national duties if they are to drop goalkeeper Manuel Neuer
Germany coach Joachim Low has shown that he is not afraid to axe players by dropping Hummels, Muller, and Boateng from the national team indefinitely and selecting Barcelona keeper Ter Stegen over Nuer something Hoeness hasn’t taken lightly.
In an interview with Bild Hoeness said: "We would never accept that (Ter Stegen replacing Neuer as No.1). (If Bayern are informed of the change) before it happens, we won't send any players to the national team anymore.”
A number of German Internationals
Given that quite a number of German internationals ply their trade with Bayern such as Niklas Süle, Serge Gnabry, Leon Goretzka, and Joshua Kimmich; this statement has caught the attention of many.
The row between Manuel Neuer and Marc-Andre ter Stegen over the number one goalkeeping spot in the German national team has hit a new high.
It is claimed that Ter Stegen is unhappy with his lack of playing time with die Mannschaft with the 27-year-old left on the bench in their recent international break in their 4-2 defeat to the Netherlands and the 2-0 win over Northern Ireland.
