Neuer apparently fractured his lower right leg during a skiing trip on Friday and has gone under surgery since then. He will be replaced by Sven Ulreich unless Bayern decides to bring in someone in the January transfer window.

The news of Manuel's injury shocked us all. We will stand by him and accompany him on his way to his comeback.

"He will also overcome this serious injury and return to the pitch as strong as before."

Director Salihamidzic also commented on the injury via an official statement which read:

"The fact that Manuel had such an accident is terrible, and of course all our thoughts are with him.

"I spoke with him yesterday and today, and the surgery went as well as possible. Manuel will receive all the support he needs.

"He is a strong personality and will come back. I wish him all the best, he can rely on FC Bayern!"

Former Bayern and current Germany boss Hansi Flick also wished Neuer a

“speedy recovery”.

According to


himself, the injury occurred after he was

“trying to get my head clear”

following Germany’s disappointing exit in the group stages of the World Cup.
