Fears grow over Neuer shoulder injury

Bayern Munich are set to provide an update on the goalkeeper’s shoulder problem later on Monday as worries grow he could miss the World Cup

Bayern Munich are set to give an update on the shoulder injury suffered by Manuel Neuer as fears grow the Germany goalkeeper could miss the World Cup.

The 28-year-old picked up a knock to his right shoulder during Saturday’s 2-0 DFB-Pokal final win over Borussia Dortmund, although it was initially thought to be a minor problem.

However, the former Schalke man was pictured on Monday leaving a doctor’s surgery following a check-up with his arm in a sling, prompting concerns that the injury could be more severe, with some reports suggesting he has suffered a broken acromioclavicular joint.

And Bayern have since confirmed they will make an announcement on the precise details of Neuer’s injury later on Monday as concerns mount over whether he will be fit to take part in the World Cup, which begins next month.

The Bundesliga champions are also set to update on the foot injury suffered by captain Philipp Lahm which forced him to be susbtituted during the DFB-Pokal final in Berlin, although Germany boss Joachim Low has already revealed he is “100 per cent sure” he will be fit for Brazil after speaking with him on Saturday.
