Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer 'breaks foot in training'

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer 'breaks foot in training'”

Early reports suggest that the 31-year-old has damaged a bone in the same foot that he broke last season.

Goalkeeper Neuer could face a lengthy spell out after sustaining another foot injury, while winger Robben, who scored in the 4-0 weekend win over Mainz, is suffering with illness.

"There will be a final examination on Tuesday".

A report in the newspaper BILD suggests that the Germany global has broken his left foot - just four months after breaking a metatarsal in the same foot in Bayern's Champions League quarter final loss to Real Madrid. Whatever the scenario, Neuer is expected to be out for another months-long rehabilitation.

Back-up Sven Ulreich is more than capable, but he has made just seven Bundesliga appearances for Bayern since he joined the club in 2015, so he does not inspire the same confidence as Neuer does.

He has conceded 13 goals in those games, winning eight, drawing one and losing three, including a 3-2 home defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the DFB Pokal semifinal.

And his performances lately have been nothing short sensational, which is pretty much what we've come to expect from the world's finest goalkeeper.
