- Returned to training earlier than expected
What is the news?
Club captain and star player Manuel Neuer has officially returned to team training at Bayern Munich. The German goalkeeper had been sidelined with a broken leg, which he suffered in a skiing accident after he returned from a disappointing 2022 World Cup with Germany. The 37-year-old was ruled out for the remainder of the season, but has now returned to team training much earlier then expected.
It has been a hectic six months for Neuer and Bayern Munich with the sacking of Julian Nagelsmann, the appointment of Thomas Tuchel and the arrival of Yann Sommer as his replacement in goal. The Swiss international has not made a superb impression for Bayern and it will be interesting to see what Sommer will do now that Neuer is on the verge of returning to full fitness.
What next for Neuer this season?
That moment of full fitness is not expected to be in the remaining three matches of this season, meaning Sommer will be finishing the season in goal for Bayern. Neuer, however, will be working on his return through the next couple of weeks and during the off season. Tuchel has already revealed that Neuer will be his number one choice again next season, which could lead to Sommer wanting to change clubs ahead of the 2024 European Championship.
