Bayern Munich back-up goalkeeper Sven Ulreich returned to the club this summer and the 32-year-old is happy to be back working with Manuel Neuer.

“Manu and I quickly realized that we were on the same wavelength. Manu noticed that I always give my all in training but don’t tease behind the scenes. That’s why we quickly got along really well,” Ulreich told FCBayern.com. “Manu attaches a lot of importance to humanity and fair cooperation in the team. That’s what distinguishes him as a captain and as a person. That fits very well with my notion of a team.”

It was not just Neuer, though, that made Ulreich want to return to Bayern Munich.

“It’s not just the proximity to the mountains, the beautiful city and the Isar that you have here. Above all, there is a great football club in Munich,” Ulreich said. “That’s why I’m happy to be back here. The club has become like a family to me in recent years. I had one or two other options, but as soon as Bayern came up, it was quickly clear to me that I wanted to do it. I’m glad the return has worked out and hope to be as successful as last time. My family is also pleased to be back in Munich.”
