Injury blow for Manuel Neuer: Bayern Munich's veteran goalkeeper sidelined

Germany and Bayern Munich have been dealt a significant setback as veteran goalkeeper Manuel Neuer suffers a left adductor injury during a training session.

Neuer, 37, faces time on the sidelines, missing Germany's upcoming friendlies against France and the Netherlands on March 23 and March 26, respectively.

This injury comes at a critical juncture for Bayern Munich, especially with crucial matches looming. Neuer's availability for Bayern's Champions League quarter-final against Arsenal remains uncertain as he races against time to recover before the first leg on April 9.

Bayern confront Borussia Dortmund on March 30 and Heidenheim in a Bundesliga fixture on April 6, heightening the impact of Neuer's absence on the team's defensive stability and their pursuit of Bundesliga glory.

A statement from the German national team confirmed Neuer's injury, describing it as a "torn muscle fibre in his left adductor" sustained during training. Well wishes for Neuer's speedy recovery highlight the significance of his presence, both on the field and in team morale.
