Manuel Neuer joins Bayern training after seven months

Following his leg fracture last December, Bayern Munich’s captain Manuel Neuer has resumed training for the first time.

The 37-year-old goalkeeper had been on vacation subsequent to Germany’s elimination from the World Cup during the group stage. Unfortunately, he sustained the injury while skiing, necessitating surgical intervention.

The injury rendered him unavailable for the remainder of the season. In response, Bayern recruited Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer during the January transfer window, although Sommer has since departed to join Inter Milan.

A Bayern statement read: “Manuel Neuer is back with the FC Bayern goalkeeper team on the pitch.

“In Monday morning’s training session for the players who didn’t start against FC Augsburg on Sunday, the 37-year-old captain completed a session with his goalkeeping colleagues for the first time since breaking his lower right leg.

“Neuer has been sidelined since sustaining the injury in December 2022 but has now taken the next step on the comeback trail.”
