January 25 Bayern goalkeeper Neuer was injured while skiing during the holiday season
Reimbursement, the German media “Sports Bild” revealed that the special clauses in his contract ensured that he could get at least four months’ salary from Bayern during his recovery period.
Six weeks after Neuer was injured, “Sport Bild” revealed the special clause in his contract: this clause guaranteed him at least four months’ salary in case of injury.
The article also stated that employers are usually only legally obligated to continue paying wages for six weeks.
But the terms of the contract make Neuer’s situation different, and since his current annual salary is about 20 million euros, Bayern will also pay him 6.5 million euros in salary for these four months, which is more than the new aid goalkeeper Sommer’s salary.
The annual salary is even higher.
Sommer joined as Neuer’s replacement last week. Bayern paid him a salary of about 5 million euros. In addition, the transfer fee paid to Borussia was 8 million euros 1.5 million euro bonus.
The article bluntly stated that this also means that this clause in Neuer’s contract has made Bayern’s burden on this summer’s signing budget heavier.
The “Sports Bild” report also stated that although Neuer’s contract did not explicitly prohibit him from going skiing, there were clauses prohibiting him from participating in dangerous sports.
As for whether skiing falls into this category, it is purely a question of how to explain it, but it caused the Bayern captain to be seriously injured, and the consequences of this injury have not yet been fully foreseen.
