"Hey, guys, what else can I say, the end of the year could have been better..." Neuer said helplessly on social media.

However, I am still sad that I am reimbursed for the season due to injury."

Following Neuer, the Bayern management have sent blessings to him. CEO Kahn said, "The news of Manuel's injury is a shock to all of us. We will stand by his side and support his comeback. He will overcome this serious injury, and the previous Come back on the pitch just as strong."

Sporting director Salihamidzic then added: "Manuel had an accident and it was horrific. Of course, our thoughts and thoughts are with him. I spoke to him and the operation went pretty well. Neuer will have all the support he needs. He is a strong man and he will be back. I wish him all the best and he can count on Bayern Munich !"
