Bayern Munich's Germany international undisputed main goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, wrote on his personal official Instagram social media account on Saturday that he unfortunately broke his leg while he was skiing on holiday with his family after competing the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar with the Germany national team.
Neuer said that he has successfully undergone a surgery, but unfortunately the doctor has also confirmed that he will be out for the rest of this season.
Upon hearing news of Neuer's sudden serious injury, Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn, who is also the club's legendary former Germany international goalkeeper, said: "The news of Manuel's injury shocked us all. We all will stand by him and accompany him on the road to recovery. He will also overcome this serious injury and return to the pitch as strong as ever."
In addition, Bayern's Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidžić also wrote on the official website of the Bundesliga defending champions that: "It is terrible that Manuel has suffered such an accident. Of course, all our thoughts are with him together."
"I spoke to him yesterday and today and the operation went very well. Manuel will have all the support he needs. He has a great personality and he will come back strongly. I wish him all the best, he can count on Bayern!"
At the same time, Hansi Flick, the Germany national team head coach who is also former Bayern manager, did not forget to wish the latter a speedy recovery after learning of the bad news of Neuer's serious injury.
With Neuer seriously injured, Bayern Munich can only hand over the responsibility of goalkeeping to veteran Sven Ulreich.
Ulreich also played in place of Neuer when he missed 8 matchs at the beginning of the season due to a shoulder injury, conceding only 6 goals.
Another goalkeeper of Bayern, former Germany U21 international star Alexander Nübel is currently playing for the Ligue 1 powerhouse AS Monaco on loan, where is the club's main goalkeeper, but it remains to be seen whether Bayern will temporarily recall Nübel.
The 36-year-old Neuer just competed in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar with the Germany national team not long ago. He started all 3 games in the group stage and conceded 5 goals. Unfortunately, he failed to lead Die Mannschaft to break through and reach the round of 16s knockout stage.
This season, Neuer has played 16 times for Bayern Munich in all competitions, conceded 11 goals and kept 4 clean sheets.
