Manuel Neuer could be back in goal for Bayern München when the German champions face Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Friday.
Speaking at a press conference today, Bayern coach Niko Kovac said the captain is ready to return after missing his side's last three games with a thumb injury.
"Manuel Neuer has been training without any complaints so he's an option for Friday's game," Kovac said, according to Sport1.
"It was his own decision not to play in the games he missed. The player always has the last word. And in this case Manuel is ready," he added.
Friday's game will be played at WWK Arena at 20.30 CET.
