FC Bayern Munich may have to do without national goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in the first Bundesliga home game of the season.

The captain sustained a capsule injury on his right ankle while winning the Supercup in Dortmund, as the German record champions announced.

The 35-year-old new boy was unable to train on Thursday because of the injury.

Bayern did not give any information about the possible length of the break from Neuer.

The Munich team must play against 1. FC Köln on the second day of the match.

The game will only take place on Sunday (5.30 p.m. in the FAZ live ticker for the Bundesliga and at DAZN).

Orban to Sabitzer Transfer

Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann was confident in assessing the damage to his number one right after the 3-1 draw against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening.

“Manu had that one punch where he took something on the ankle.

But he could play through, also play very well.

I do not assume that it is anything worse, ”said Nagelsmann.

Neuer continued to play after a brief treatment.

Should Neuer fail, Sven Ulreich, who has returned from Hamburger SV to Bayern, should be in the Munich goal against Cologne.

Meanwhile, RB Leipzig captain Willi Orban commented on a possible departure from midfielder Marcel Sabitzer and showed calm.

This is not an issue for the team.

At the end of the transfer period, you know where you are going, said the Hungarian in an interview with Kicker magazine.

"We have a big squad, especially in midfield the competition is great," said the defender.

Recently there had been rumors of change about the Austrian Sabitzer.

Among other things, it was discussed that the 27-year-old could follow the former RB coach Julian Nagelsmann to the German champions FC Bayern Munich.
