Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has been ruled out for the rest of the season after breaking a leg on holiday.The 36-year-old German shot-stopper was enjoying his holiday when the unfortunate incident happened.
Neuer broke his leg while on a ski tour and underwent surgery a few weeks after his nation was booted out of the ongoing World Cup in group stages.
Following this devastating injury which is a massive blow for the Bundesliga giants, Neuer took to social media to make the announcement.
“what can I say, the end of the year could have definitely gone better… While I was trying to get my head clear while ski touring, I suffered a lower leg fracture. Yesterday’s surgery went well. Many thanks to the doctors! However, it hurts to know that the current season is over for me. Take care,” wrote the injured goalkeeper.
Lately, Bayern’s Neuer underwent three surgeries for skin cancer on his face, and the leg surgery will make his fourth in the last four months.After opening up on skin cancer, Neuer said he decided to team up with three-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber since both are affected by the same disease.
“We both have a history of skin diseases. In my case, skin cancer on my face required three surgeries.
When it comes to sunscreen, we have therefore paid attention to maximum protection.
‘Since we train outside all the time and also like to spend our free time in nature, it is essential for us to start with modern sun protection filters and a sun protection factor of 50+.
‘So we know for sure that we have a sunscreen that protects us continuously and with which hardly anything can burn.’
Manuel Neuer’s illness came to light back in December 2021 when he was spotted with a plaster on his face before Bayern Munich’s Champions League clash against Barcelona.
