Manuel Neuer will likely be registered by coach Thomas Tuchel for the confrontation between Bayern Munich and Mainz 05 on Saturday after 10 months of injury treatment. The German international broke his leg during the winter break in December 2022 while skiing, causing him to be absent from then until now.
In addition to Manuel Neuer, winger Serge Gnabry, who suffered a fractured arm, also returned to training this week along with defender Matthijs de Ligt. These will be necessary additions for the defending Bundesliga champions before entering the dense competition schedule.
The Allianz Arena team remains unbeaten in the Bundesliga this season, temporarily ranked third with 17 points, 2 points behind Bayer Leverkusen. Despite the serious shortage of personnel, Bayern Munich is still the team with the strongest attack in the tournament with 23 goals.
Coach Thomas Tuchel expressed dissatisfaction with the Bayern Munich leadership. He criticized the club’s transfer plan, leading to a shortage of personnel in several positions. The important return from the three names mentioned above will partly help ease the current situation.
