Neuer to miss the rest of the sea­son

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Bay­ern Mu­nich goal­keeper Manuel Neuer will miss the rest of the sea­son af­ter frac­tur­ing his left foot dur­ing the Cham­pi­ons League quar­ter-fi­nal sec­ond-leg de­feat by Real Madrid on Tues­day.

Neuer, 31, sus­tained the in­jury dur­ing Cris­tiano Ron­aldo's third goal in ex­tra time as Bay­ern lost 6-3 on ag­gre­gate.

“I am sad that I will not be avail­able to the team for the sea­son fi­nale," the Ger­many keeper told Bay­ern’s web­site.

“Now I am con­cen­trat­ing on get­ting back to full health as soon as pos­si­ble.” Carlo Ancelotti's Bay­ern are clos­ing in on a fifth suc­ces­sive Bun­desliga ti­tle.

They are eight points clear at the top of the ta­ble with five games re­main­ing. Former Stuttgart keeper Sven Ul­re­ich, 28, is likely to deputise for Neuer for the rest of the sea­son.

Bay­ern will play rel­e­ga­tion­threat­ened Mainz to­mor­row at the Al­lianz arena.
