Michael Schumacher's former manager, Willi Weber, boldly comes out again slamming the Schumacher family for not providing any update regarding the real health status of the iconic professional car racer.

In a report by Express UK, Weber furthered his accusations saying that the clan withholding any kind of information is some kind of a betrayal for Michael's legions of fans who have been on the lookout for any news regarding his recuperation.

"For some time now, I've been saying that the Schumacher family is not telling the whole truth. It's time to pour pure wine for his millions of fans," he was quoted as saying. "But I'm biting on granite because for a long time my advice is no longer heard," he went on to say.

The German entrepreneur and car racing connoisseur then revealed that even him, who has worked closely with Michael over the course of his long-running career, has been barred from visiting him. "I do not know much about Michael's condition, but even though I have worked very successfully with Michael for 30 years, I am denied the visit," Webber stated.

This is not the first time that Michael's ex-mentor has slammed the Schumachers. Last year, he famously called out Corinna, Michael's wife for the same reasons. It is no secret that the family has been trying to keep everything on the down low, with unofficial spokesperson/Michael's current manager, Sabine Kehm, coming out and reiterating again and again that they have no plans of publicizing her client's condition. She also asks for everyone's understanding, especially at these trying times.

That being said, Webber, just like everyone else, is trying to keep a hopeful mindset on Michael's return saying, "When I'm home alone and the phone rings I often feel that it will be Michael saying 'Willi, how's it going?'"

Just earlier this month, Michael has spent yet another birthday at his Switzerland estate where he is said to be receiving top medical attention from world-renowned medical practitioners. Last December also marks the third-year anniversary of his freak skiing accident that rendered him in his current status.
