Bayern Munich Goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer Out Until 2018 After Breaking Left Foot

Bayern Munich have confirmed they will be without Manuel
Neuer until January, after the German keeper broke his left
foot for the third time in 2018.
The 31-year-old originally suffered a hairline fracture to a
metatarsal in March, but soon returned to action after a
minor operation which saw a screw inserted into his foot.
Neuer was pulled out of training at Sabener Strasse on
Monday, complaining of a problem in his foot once more.
He was immediately examined at the training ground before
heading to hospital in Tubingen early on Tuesday morning for
a final scan that confirmed he had once again cracked his
Neuer, for many the world’s best goalkeeper, was operated on
and had a plate set against the fracture, before Bayern CEO
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge revealed Bayern don’t expect him to
return until the new year.
Rummenigge said;
“The fact that Manuel Neuer has once
again suffered an injury makes us
incredibly sorry for him,”
“The operation has gone perfectly and
that is the most important thing. Now
we are now looking forward, together
with our captain, and Manuel will be
back to his previous best and available
to us again in January.”
With Neuer absent, Bayern will rely on No.2 Sven Ulreich to step into the breach, with 17-year-old Christian Frutchl acting as his back up. This is Neuer’s third operation on the same foot in six months.
