A few days ago, Manuel Neuer publicly announced that he had skin cancer on his face and had to undergo three surgeries as a result. Now the Bayern keeper has commented in a little more detail about the disease.
Not much is really known about how the disease unfolded and how threatening it really was. However, Neuer seems to have completely left the matter behind and did not have to step back in terms of sport. However, a little of the illness and the three surgeries has remained. "I also had to pay a price for the whole thing because I have a scar next to my nose," he explained. However, as long as it is nothing and the cancer does not return, it should be said that it is not too high.
