Bayern bankruptcy in Manchester: “Disrespectful” to Sommer – Amazon commentator causes trouble with a spicy question about a goal conceded

The goal of the evening was not scored by the usual suspect Erling Haaland on Tuesday evening at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, but by midfielder Rodri. And what a thing: In the 26th minute of the Champions League quarterfinals between the hosts Manchester City and FC Bayern, the Spaniard gets the ball in front of Bayern's sixteen. Rodri first dances the approaching Musiala, gets into position and flicks it Ball from 20 meters exactly in the corner. Bayern keeper Yann Sommer flies over and stretches - but all the effort is in vain. A mad hit, unbearable one might think.

Amazon Prime commentator Jonas Friedrich nevertheless raised the question: "Would Manuel Neuer have gotten the ball?" A question that many felt was unnecessary and disrespectful to Yann Sommer. Because: On the one hand, Manuel Neuer is known to have been injured for months, so he could not have played at all. On the other hand, his replacement Yann Sommer, representing Borussia Mönchengladbach, made numerous saves before and after the goal to ensure that his team stayed in the game and were not further behind. At 1-0, the Swiss could not change anything with the best will in the world. The question is particularly piquant because it is still unclear how things will continue after Neuer's recovery and whether the long-time DFB keeper has a future at Bayern.

The reactions on the Internet were correspondingly little understanding. Some examples:

It was also pointed out that the error before the Citizens' opening goal had happened before and was not caused by Sommer:

Other users reminded that Manuel Neuer is injured:

Expert Benedikt Höwedes probably answered the question best in the studio: "Maybe Yann Sommer is missing two or three centimeters at the end. But it is pointless to answer whether he (Neuer, the Red.) would have held it."
