The goalkeeper born in 1986 officially returned to football after more than 10 months of injury treatment. Before, Manuel Neuer broke his leg in a terrible skiing accident that forced him to leave the field.
Coach Thomas Tuchel personally confirmed the information that Manuel Neuer will start in the match between Bayern Munich and Darmstadt: “As long as nothing happens in training, he will play. He was very excited, as were all of us.”
It has been 350 days since Manuel Neuer last stood in the wooden goal of the Allianz Arena team, the German strategist added: “I can feel his excitement and class. He is enjoying it right now and can be proud of himself. His return is very impressive. I believe he will quickly regain top form.”
During Manuel Neuer’s injury, the defending Bundesliga champions were forced to consider short-term solutions such as signing Yann Sommer from Bayern Monchengladbach or placing their trust in number two goalkeeper, Sven Ulreich.
