Toni Tapalović

Postby MUTU » Wed Jun 08, 2011 3:53 pm

The new goalkeeper coach at FC Bayern is Toni Tapalović, a 30 year old Croatian who last season was playing in goal for FSV Mainz 05 II. He had previously kept goal for Schalke 04 II during the 2008/2009 season, so he should know Manuel Neuer from his stint there. His contract runs until 30th June 2013.

It seems that Neuer and Tapalovic are friends as they were recently together on holiday in Dubrovnik. Neuer might therefore have had a say in the signing of Tapalović.

Re: Official coach transfer thread

We have a new goalkeeping coach, hopefully this is the right thread to post in.

Meanwhile Bayern have announced a new addition to their coaching staff with the arrival of Toni Tapalovic as the club's new goalkeeping coach. The 31-year-old Croatian has signed a two-year deal and will work closely with both Manuel Neuer and Jörg Butt.

"Toni is from Gelsenkirchen like me so we know each other from our time together at Schalke 04. I'm sure I'll continue my development under him," said Neuer. Head coach Jupp Heynckes added: "I'm looking forward to working with a young and dynamic goalkeeping coach. Toni impressed me with both his character and knowledge during our discussions."

Actually, he is still 30 years old since he was born on 10th October 1980. I wonder if we ever had such a young coach before, and I wonder how Butt will feel seeing that he's 7 years older than his coach.

I find it weird how he has become the goalkeeping coach when he was playing for Mainz's second team. Can he really teach Neuer anything better ? :P

Probably just to please Neuer. Butt himself will be a goalkeeping coach in the future, I imagine.

Hahahaha, Toni Tapalović... I simply can't belive it... :lol: :lol: :lol: 30-years old, so young and in retirement... He could still play in CRO 2nd division. :mrgreen:

However, I don't know how much is this good choice for Bayern... We'll see, but this is something funny for me after Hitzfeld's friend Zvonko Komes. :D

Re: Toni Tapalovic named goalkeeping coach

We're getting a goal coach who never played at Bayern, great. Lets hope he trains well and our keepers keep on improving.

I just hope Tapalovic doesn't need to get into the field someday because the other goalkeepers were injured (Dreher made it once, remember?)
