Kovac: Neuer will 'probably' miss Schalke clash
Bayern München coach Niko Kovac says Manuel Neuer will most likely not play against Schalke 04 on Saturday.
Bayern München captain Manuel Neuer will probably miss his side's Bundesliga game against Schalke 04 on Saturday.
Neuer has missed the last two games because of a thumb injury, and Bayern don't want to take any risks ahead of the Champions League game against Liverpool on February 19.
"The player must always decide if they are ready to play or not. He couldn't against Hertha, the same probably goes tomorrow. We don't want to take any risks with Liverpool coming up," Kovac said, as quoted by the club.
If Neuer is unable to play, Sven Ulreich is set to be in goal for Bayern for the third time in a row.
