Dennis Jax has blood cancer and is unable to attend games at the Allianz Arena, but Ulreich has given the 17-year-old tickets for the clash at Hoffenheim’s WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar Arena to make his wish to see Bayern one more time a reality.
Ulreich, who has been deputising for the injured Manuel Neuer in recent matches, was only too pleased to ensure that Dennis would see his heroes in person.
"For me it is a natural thing, a matter of the heart to help with something like this,” the 28-year-old told Bild.
“I didn't think about it for one moment. A lot of things have to take a back seat."
Dennis was thrilled by Ulreich’s big-hearted gesture, saying "I don't know what to say. I am really looking forward to it. I hope that Bayern win - 4-0 would be the best result."
