Bayern München CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has underlined that 'all decision-makers' at the club are pleased about the summer signing of Alexander Nübel on a free transfer from Schalke 04.

"In recent weeks there have been a lot of reports about Alexander Nübel. On behalf of FC Bayern, I would like to clarify that all decision-makers at Bayern, including head coach Hansi Flick, are very happy that Alexander Nübel will be a Bayern player next season," Rummenigge said in an official statement.

"He is one of the best young goalkeepers in Europe and an important player for the future of our team. We're confident that Manuel Neuer, with his quality and experience, will make an important contribution to Alexander Nübel's development.

"In addition, we would like to put on record that FC Bayern does not tolerate derogatory comments from players' agents about other Bayern players," Rummenigge said, probably referring to recent statements from the agents of Bayern reserve keepers Sven Ulreich and Christian Früchtl.
