Oh Thomas Kraft...... silly man

From http://espnfc.com/news/story/_/id/1591886/hertha-keeper-thomas-kraft-warns-bayern-munich-switch

Thomas Kraft has warned young goalkeepers against trying to make a breakthrough at his former club Bayern Munich.

Kraft played for Bayern from 2008 to 2011, and had at one stage established himself as the club’s No. 1 under Louis van Gaal, playing 12 Bundesliga games in the 2010-11 season.

However, Van Gaal left in April 2011, and Bayern brought in Germany international Manuel Neuer that summer, while Kraft joined newly promoted Hertha Berlin on a free transfer.

Kraft, now 25, feels young goalkeepers should think twice about a move to the Allianz Arena as the prospects of first-team football are minimal given Neuer’s presence.

"When a 27/28-year-old is between the posts there, you have to make up your mind whether you want to line up behind him and go the extremely difficult -- maybe even impossible -- route [of trying to take his place]," Kraft told Sport Bild ahead of Hertha’s away game at the Allianz Arena next weekend.

Oh Thomas......

You were replaced by the best goalkeeper in the world. At least have some sort of pride in that. If you're gonna talk $hit, say things like, "The only person would could top me is the best goalie in the world"

No reason to be bitter about it. Any young goaltender who comes to Bayern has to expect to be second fiddle to Neuer.
