Injury Rules Neuer Out For Rest Of The Season

Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will not feature again for Bayern Munich this season due to a broken metatarsal, the Bundesliga champions have confirmed.

Neuer suffered the injury as Cristiano Ronaldo completed his hat-trick in Real Madrid's dramatic 4-2 extra-time victory over Bayern, which eliminated Carlo Ancelotti's men from the Champions League quarter-finals by a 6-3 aggregate margin.

 

 

 

 

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told reporters Neuer was facing an eight-week absence and on Thursday Bayern released a statement to say the fracture to the 31-year-old's left foot would leave him with no further part to play in their bid for a domestic double.

"Of course I am sad that I will not be available to the team for the season finale," Neuer told his club's official website.

"Now I am concentrating on getting back to health as soon as possible. This is the most important thing for me now."

Neuer missed three games earlier this month due to a foot injury, with Sven Ulrich deputising and the 28-year-old is now set to return for Saturday's home match against Mainz.

Bayern boast a commanding eight-point lead over RB Leipzig at the top of the Bundesliga and face rivals Borussia Dortmund in the semi-finals of the DFB Pokal next Wednesday.
