Manuel Neuer hopes for a torn injury in the calf to return to the Bundesliga Bayern Munich in the final sprint of the season. "My goal is to fit in as quickly as possible," the caretaker said Wednesday at a press conference in Munich. "I think Leipzig is a real goal." On May 11, Munich competes in the penultimate round of the current Bundesliga third RB Leipzig. The club initially assumed that the goalkeeper would be missing only about 14 days.
Noyer suffered a break in the last week's match at Fortuna Dusseldorf. In the current second half of the Bundesliga Neuer has already missed two games due to injury to the thumb and one because of problems with the body. Last season, he came because of a metatarsal failure of only three league inserts.
The speculation that he can announce his retirement from the national team at a press conference, the 33-year-old says: "We laughed a lot."
