Neuer returns to training after eight months injury


Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer returned to training with his goalkeeping colleagues on Monday for the first time since breaking his leg in a skiing accident 8 months ago.


Bayern Munich said in a statement that “the 37-year-old captain completed a session with his goalkeeping colleagues” and that he “has now taken the next step on the comeback trail“.


Bayern Munich didn’t give details of what kind of training Neuer can do at the moment or when he might be ready to play a game. 


Following recent surgery to remove metal implants from Neuer’s leg, Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel indicated that the goalkeeper’s recovery was going faster than expected this month.


Neuer’s longtime backup Sven Ulreich has been in goal for the first three games of Bayern’s season, including Sunday’s 3-1 win over Augsburg.

Bayern said Neuer was training Monday alongside new arrival Daniel Peretz, who signed from Maccabi Tel Aviv on Friday to add depth to the German champion’s squad.
