​Bayern Munich keeper Neuer to return for Liverpool

Bayern Munich are boosted by news that Manuel Neuer will be back for the Champions League clashes against Liverpool.

The German goalkeeper has experienced fitness issues, but he believes that he will be ready for the games.

Bayern are hoping to progress in the competition, as they embark on a big second half of the season.

Neuer has been missing in action due to a thumb injury.

He told ESPN FC: "I am fine, it's not that bad.

"I think our medical [staff] will push me into goal and if everything is fine in training, I will play [against Liverpool].

"We are all positive. I think I will be between the sticks."

The German champions are five points behind Borussia Dortmund in Bundesliga.
