FC Bayern, News: Neuer talks about skin cancer
Manuel Neuer has commented on surviving skin cancer, for which he had to undergo three surgeries. “You have a lot of respect and a bit of fear,” said the goalkeeper picture on sunday about the time after the diagnosis: “But if the dermatologist enlightens you and tells you how to proceed, your fear will be taken away.”
The disease was completely over, explained the 36-year-old: “But you have to keep watching it in the mirror and see if there are any changes. Every six months I have to go to the dermatologist, for a sort of follow-up check and prevention at the same time, because you can see everything on your body not.”
His teammates at FC Bayern all knew about it, Neuer continued: “I then had a kind of fresh laceration on my face several times. The plaster was also noticed immediately. Of course, the players and staff asked about it and I told them.”
Despite his illness, the national keeper stood between the posts at Munich. It wasn’t that easy, admitted the native of Gelsenkirchen.
“For me it was just important that the wound doesn’t burst open and that I put my hands in front of my face when the ball flies towards my head. You go with balls from close range, i.e. crosses, volleys, one-on-one, yes think everything through in your head. You think about the fact that the ball could hit your face from three or four meters. That shouldn’t happen, the dermatologist warned me, but I managed it well,” said Neuer.

Simply impressive,” said Kerber picture on sunday: “I know myself how difficult it is to deal with this pressure. I admire the fact that he’s always up there. How down-to-earth and relaxed he has remained is something you don’t often see in very successful athletes.”
FC Bayern, News: Self-criticism despite victory
The 3-2 win at Hertha BSC was Bayern’s eighth consecutive win in a competitive game. Nevertheless, those involved were not completely satisfied. The reason: The German record champions were already leading 3-0 after 38 minutes, but then made it exciting again with two quick goals conceded.
“There were moments when we couldn’t play our football. We couldn’t concentrate after the 3-0 defeat. We could have made life easier for ourselves,” said Julian Nagelsmann.
Jamal Musiala, scorer to make it 1-0, agreed with his coach: “After the third goal we didn’t quite have our heads for a few minutes. We have to be 100 per cent there the whole time in a game like this because the opponent otherwise score the goals.”
In particular, Dodi Lukebakio’s first goal in Berlin was “completely unnecessary,” explained Neuer, who made his comeback against Hertha: “It was a similar ball to the one against Dortmund. There was a little lack of man-bonding, although we were numerically in the box were superior. If we defend that away, it can also be a clean sheet.”
