According to Bild, Manuel Neuer had to leave training Monday morning ahead of the Schalke 04 match with an apparent foot injury. He was immediately given a CT scan and it revealed his left foot is broken again. The re-injured foot may require surgery, which would necessarily require another months-long rehabilitation.

Bayern Munich gave a brief press release stating Neuer injured his left foot in practice on Monday and will miss the game against Schalke 04. A final examination and diagnosis will be determined Tuesday.

Neuer had just celebrated his comeback on August 26, nearly six months after suffering a broken metatarsal in the Champions League quarterfinals at the end of March.
