Germany captain Manuel Neuer breaks leg while skiing

MUNICH, Germany (AP) — Germany and Bayern Munich captain Manuel Neuer has been ruled out for the rest of the season after breaking his leg while skiing. The goalkeeper says in an Instagram post that he underwent surgery on Friday. The post shows a photo of Neuer apparently in a hospital bed with his right leg in a cast and a bandage on his left hand. Neuer had some time off after Germany’s group-stage exit from the World Cup. Neuer writes, “While I was trying to get my head clear while ski touring, I suffered a lower leg fracture. Yesterday’s surgery went well. Many thanks to the doctors! However, it hurts to know that the current season is over for me.”
