Sensitive loss for Bayern in Barcelona

Bayern Munich will travel to Barcelona next Tuesday without their captain. Manuel Neuergoalkeeper of the Bundesliga champion, will not be part of the Munich expedition due to some shoulder problems that have already prevented him from being under the sticks in the last three commitments of his team against Viktoria Pilsen at home in the Champions League (2-4), against Freiburg in the Bundesliga (5-0) and in Augsburg in the Pokal (2-5). Once again Sven Ulreich will be in charge of supplying him on Wednesday against Barça.

“Manu is still in pain and will not be available”, were the words of coach Julian Nagelsmann before taking on Hoffenheim this Saturday in the Bundesliga. “Everything indicates that he will not arrive on time for Barcelona either.. You have to go day by day, it is a matter of pain. Basically, many things can happen like a long-term absence or a chronic injury. We definitely want to avoid these types of setbacks”, stressed the coach.

Neuer does not want to take risks, especially considering that there is less than a month left before the World Cup starts. According to Nagelsmann, the goalkeeper will once again be in top condition in Qatar. “I don’t think the World Cup is in danger. In the end, Manu is the one who knows his body best. It’s a dumb spot, the humerus joint. Yesterday he trained in the gym, there were days when he was better and others worse. But I don’t think he can’t participate in the World Cup. I hope he will be fit again next week against Mainz”, he concluded.
