Bayern Munich captain, Manuel Neuer, has been ruled out for the rest of the year, after undergoing “perfect” surgery on a broken foot.

The Bundesliga champions announced on Monday, that Neuer had injured his left foot in training and was due to miss Tuesday’s trip to Schalke.

However, following an operation, Bayern will now have to do without the Germany goalkeeper until January.

“Manuel Neuer [31] sustained a repeat hairline fracture of the metatarsal in his left foot in training on Monday. Following a final diagnosis on Monday lunchtime, the Bayern captain underwent surgery early on Tuesday morning to repair the damage. The op, performed by Prof. Dr. Ulrich Stockle in Tubingen, involved setting the fracture with a plate.”

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge added: “Manuel Neuer has sustained another injury and we’re incredibly sorry for him. The operation went perfectly, which is the most important thing for now. We and our captain are now looking to the future. Manuel will be back to his previous best and available to us again in January,” a Bayern statement read.
