Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer to miss rest of the season with foot injury

Raphael Honigstein shares his perspective on the refereeing decisions in Real Madrid's 4-2 win over Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich have confirmed goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will be out for the rest of the season with a broken foot.

Scans on Wednesday evening revealed Neuer, 31, suffered a break to a metatarsal in his left foot in the second leg of Bayern's Champions League quarterfinal defeat to Real Madrid.

The Germany international picked up the injury during the build-up to Cristiano Ronaldo's third goal in the 4-2 loss at the Santiago Bernabeu, a result that knocked Bayern out of the competition following a 6-3 aggregate defeat.

Neuer will not need to undergo surgery but will play no further part as Bayern look to secure a fifth successive Bundesliga title, with the club also in the hunt for a second consecutive DFB Pokal.

The Bundesliga leaders currently sit eight points clear of second-placed RB Leipzig with five matches of the season remaining, while they face Borussia Dortmund in the DFB Pokal semifinals later this month.

Neuer told Bayern's official website: "Of course, I am sad that I will not be available to the team for the season finale. Now I am concentrating on getting back to full health as soon as possible. This is the most important thing for me now.''
