Neuer back in training

FC Bayern can almost certainly count on Manuel Neuer being in goal for Saturday’s Bundesliga fixture against 1899 Hoffenheim. The world’s best keeper, who missed playing in Germany’s 1-0 friendly international win against Spain due to a slight knee problem, completed a training session at the Säbener Strasse on Wednesday afternoon. “It was just a short-term problem,” said Matthias Sammer earlier in the day. The sporting director is hopeful Neuer will be available for this weekend’s game.
