FC Bayern must continue to wait for Manuel Neuer's return. Contrary to plans, the keeper still did not take part in training on Thursday.
Due to a bruised shoulder joint, Manuel Neuer has missed the last three games for Munich. Before the cup game against FC Augsburg, which FC Bayern won 5-2 on Wednesday evening, Julian Nagelsmann had announced that Neuer should complete parts of the training again for the first time this Thursday: "He will take part in parts of the game replacement training on Thursday. And then we see how restricted the movement is."
Nagelsmann had already announced in the past few days that he would exercise caution with his captain. "It's a tightrope walk - every game that's too early throws him back," said the 35-year-old, who also emphasized that there was no point in "always pumping Neuer full [with painkillers] so that he can play". .
The next opportunity for the comeback would be for Neuer next Wednesday when FC Bayern is a guest at FC Barcelona in the Champions League.
