Injured Neuer to miss rest of season

Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will not feature again for Bay­ern Munich this season due to a broken metatarsal, the Bun­desliga champions have confirmed.

Neuer suffered the injury as Cristiano Ronaldo completed his hat-trick in Real Madrid’s dramatic 4-2 extra-time victory over Bayern, which eliminated Carlo Ancelotti’s men from the Champions League quarter-fi­nals by a 6-3 aggregate margin.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told reporters Neuer was facing an eight-week absence and on ThursdayBayern released a statement to say the fracture to the 31-year-old’s left foot would leave him with no further part to play in their bid for a domestic dou­ble.

“Of course I am sad that I will not be available to the team for the season finale,” Neuer told his club’s official website.

“Now I am concentrating on getting back to health as soon as possible. This is the most important thing for me now.”
