Manuel Neuer provides injury update ahead of Liverpool match

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has announced he will be ready for Champions League Round of 16 clash against Liverpool.

Bundesliga champions will visit Anfield next week.

Neuer told club’s official website (via Goal): “Yesterday went well. Today went well. I’ve joined in with everything [in training] and I’m ready.

“Even while I was out, I generally did everything apart from the goalkeeper-specific training. Now I’ve had two good sessions and came through both of them. Everything is working, I completed everything.

“Obviously, the coach [Niko Kovac] picks the line-up. The medical department gave me the go-ahead. I was prescribed some time out. Obviously, I would’ve liked to have played during this period but that wouldn’t have been possible, so I took the time out.

“My hand needed it too. Now I’ve got the go-ahead from the doctors and I can play.”
