​Bayern Munich sweat on Neuer ahead of Liverpool clash

Bayern Munich are concerned about the fitness of goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

He was absent as they suffered a 3-1 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen, which leaves them seven points off the top of the Bundesliga.

Given their game against the Reds is two weeks away, Neuer could face a race against time to be fit.

And manager Niko Kovac would not give specifics about his return timetable.

According to German reports he said: "I can not say exactly. When I say it will be five months, there is a big fuss, and if I say it will be five days, everyone thinks it's not that bad.

"The fact is, he was in pain. Otherwise, he would have played."
