Goalkeeper: "Had three surgeries": Manuel Neuer had skin cancer

National goalkeeper Manuel Neuer had skin cancer and therefore had to undergo three surgeries. He said so in an interview on the website of a skin care producer. "We both have a history of skin diseases," says Neuer in a double interview with tennis star Angelique Kerber. "In my case, skin cancer on my face, which required three surgeries." Fortunately, he seems to have survived the illness well, according to the "Bild" newspaper, he is no longer affected by it.

Last year, Neuer was seen with a plaster on his face. Back then, many fans had already wondered what had happened – there hadn't been an answer to this day.

The interview does not appear entirely coincidental. Shortly before the soccer World Cup, Neuer has been absent from FC Bayern Munich for weeks and many soccer fans are wondering whether the 36-year-old will be fit again in time for the tournament. Now Neuer gets a lot of attention for his statement and he obviously wanted it too. According to Neuer, he helped develop the skin and hair care products. In this way he draws attention to the topic of skin cancer and at the same time to the products.
