Niklas Sule explains decision to skip Bayern Munich’s final league game

Niklas Sule has hit out at reports suggesting he refused to travel for Bayern Munich’s final league game against Wolfsburg, insisting the decision was down to manager Julian Nagelsmann.

Sule has already agreed to leave Bayern on a free transfer this summer, with a move to Borussia Dortmund lined up, and when he failed to show for the final game of the campaign on Saturday, he was blasted by many fans and even honorary president Uli Hoeness, who described the defender’s actions as ‘catastrophic’.

Now, in an interview with Bild, Sule has revealed what led to his omission from the matchday squad.

“It’s not true,” Sule said of the speculation. “Things were said about me in the past few weeks that are unacceptable.

“Last Thursday, Julian Nagelsmann asked me if it’s okay for me not to be included in the squad for Wolfsburg. He wanted to give priority to the young players who will be at Bayern next season. There was no place in the squad for me. I understood his decision and accepted it.
