Bayern Munich have announced goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will be out for the rest of the season after breaking his metatarsal during their Champions League loss to Real Madrid.

Sven Ulreich is set to replace Neuer in goal. Ulreich has yet to make his Bayern debut.

The German international will now miss the remainder of the Bundesliga season and Bayern’s DFB Pokal semi-final clash with Borussia Dortmund next week.

Debate Point

What does this mean for Bayern’s season?

How vital is Neuer?

Is Ulreich a good enough back up?
