AZ-Interview with Jean-Marie Pfaff: The 66-year-old Belgian stood from 1982 until 1988, when FC Bayern in the gate.

AZ: Mr. Pfaff, is the extension of the contract of Manuel Neuer FC Bayern for both sides, the right decision? JEAN-MARIE PFAFF: of Course. Manuel Neuer is a perfect professional, he was always world – class in spite of his injuries at the foot. In recent years, New had a bit of bad luck, some have written him off already. But now the New is back and long again at a top level. He can play until he is 40. Like Dino Zoff. (laughs)

For Alexander Nübel, the changes from Schalke 04 for the upcoming season, to FC Bayern, it will be difficult in the coming years to come on time. That's right. New will be the number one, as long as he is at FC Bayern. I have no doubt. New is very important for the team and the club. He is now a goalkeeping legend at Bayern, Oliver Kahn, Sepp Maier and me. But it can always happen with injuries, or Lock, and then you could Nübel play all of a sudden. Therefore, Let the young men first, after Munich, he will be a lot of New learning.

Pfaff: Nübel must in the Training of New learning

a goalkeeper at the age of 23 years do not Need to collect in the first line practice game, to be able to continue to develop? It is not good to earn money, if you are sitting on the bench. For me, that was also not nice in my career. But I am sure that Nübel can benefit from New and in Training a lot of it is learn. Nübel is a young goalkeeper and has to be Mature. It is a luxury situation for FC Bayern, two Toptorhüter is to have in the squad. And I think even that New and Nübel are two good friends.

How do you come up with that? The Trouble with this competition is not threatening? New knows the Situation of a young goalkeeper, waiting for his Chance. The was with him at that time at Schalke as well. And that is exactly what Nübel have to hope That he gets a Chance, and then also uses. The New Schalke at the time, super.
