Bayern Munich’s captain and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is out for the rest of the season as the club indeed confirmed today that he broke his leg while skiing and this is a severe injury, so the club and the player cannot rush it.
He successfully went under surgery today, but now his injury is a serious headache for Julian Nagelsmann as after the World Cup is ended, club football will be back and the German giants will face the French champions PSG in their round of 16 and that too against the sensational attacking trio of Mbappe, Neymar and Messi.
Manuel Neur ruled out for the season; know details
Today Manuel Neuer also wrote something for his supporters, he said “Hey guys, what can I say, the end of the year could have definitely gone better. While I was trying to get my head clear while ski touring, I suffered a lower leg fracture. Yesterday’s surgery went well. Many thanks to the doctors! However, it hurts to know that the current season is over for me. Take care! Your Manuel.” This has indeed been a difficult year for Manuel both on a sporting and personal level.
He has already had 3 surgeries to remove to skin cancer that he was having and he still has a facial scar on his face. Whereas on the sporting level, his nation got knocked out of the World Cup for the second consecutive time in the group stage.
So now the goalkeeper would be looking to return in firing form for the next season and also prepare for the Euros 2024 which is going to be most likely his last major international tournament.
