Yann Sommer joins Bayern Munich

Yann Sommer, the Swiss international goalkeeper, has joined Bayern Munich on a free transfer from Borussia Monchengladbach. The move, which was announced on January 20, 2023, sees Sommer join one of the biggest clubs in the world and reunite with his former Monchengladbach coach Marco Rose, who recently took over as Bayern manager.

Sommer, who turns 33 in December, has been one of the most consistent goalkeepers in the Bundesliga for several years. He joined Monchengladbach in 2014 from FC Basel and quickly established himself as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper. He played over 300 games for the club, helping them qualify for the Champions League on multiple occasions and finish as runners-up in the Bundesliga in the 2016-17 season.

His performances for Monchengladbach did not go unnoticed, and Sommer has been a regular member of the Swiss national team since 2011. He has represented his country at two World Cups and three European Championships and has been named Swiss Footballer of the Year on three occasions.

When will Yann Sommer play for Bayern Munich

Sommer’s move to Bayern Munich is a significant one for both the player and the club. For Sommer, it represents an opportunity to join one of the biggest and most successful clubs in the world and compete for major honours. Bayern Munich has won the Bundesliga title in each of the last nine seasons and is a regular participant in the Champions League. They are also the reigning Champions League holders, having won the competition in 2020-2021.

For Bayern Munich, the signing of Sommer represents a significant upgrade in goal. The club’s current first-choice goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer, is now 35 years old and has been showing signs of decline in recent seasons. Sommer’s arrival will provide competition for Neuer and ensure that the club has a reliable and experienced goalkeeper to call upon when needed.

Sommer’s signing also reunites him with his former Monchengladbach coach Marco Rose, who recently took over as Bayern manager. The two have a strong relationship, and Sommer will be familiar with Rose’s playing style and tactics, which should help him adapt quickly to his new surroundings.
