Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer was “delighted” to deliver a record-breaking performance on a “really tough day” at Bayern Munich.

Switzerland international Sommer made a sensational 19 saves, the most on record in a single game in Europe’s top five leagues, to help his team to a 1-1 draw against the champions.

Gladbach took a first-half lead against the run of play through Marcus Thuram, but a second-half onslaught from Julian Nagelsmann’s side ramped up the pressure on the visitors. 

However, Sommer made save after save and looked impenetrable until Bayern finally found a way through as Leroy Sane picked out the bottom-left corner, giving the goalkeeper no chance.

The hosts pushed for a winner, but Sommer held firm to earn Gladbach a hard-fought draw, preventing a staggering 3.3 goals according to expected goals on target data.

“I’m glad I did a good job so we can take a point today,” Sommer told Sky Sport.

“It was a really tough day today, because we know how much power and pressure Bayern exert on opponents.

“The defence can’t keep everything out, so I’m delighted that I had such a good game.”

Sommer has been linked with a move away from Gladbach, with Manchester United reportedly interested in the former Basel keeper.

And he indicated he would discuss his future in the next next week, adding: “I’ve been here for eight years, so of course I feel at home here, it’s like a family”

“But we’ll still sit down and have a chat in the next few days.”
