Neuer dismisses retirement rumours

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer on Wednesday quashed rumours of his imminent retirement and says he wants to return in time to face RB Leipzig on the penultimate day of the Bundesliga season. "It is difficult to say when I will be back but I think Leipzig is a realistic target," he said at a press conference, with league leaders Bayern away to third-placed Leipzig on May 5. Neuer has had a relentless struggle with injury in recent years, and after the club announced that he would give a press conference on Wednesday, there was some speculation that he might be about to end his career. "We smiled about that," Neuer admitted when asked about the rumours. The Bayern shot-stopper insists he is taking this latest setback in his stride after twice breaking a bone in his foot in 2017.
