Bayern München and Germany captain Manuel Neuer revealed that he has undergone three operations for skin cancer on his face.
The 36-year-old has opened up on his history with skin cancer in connection with the launch of a new skincare product with tennis star Angelique Kerber.

“We both have a very personal history when it comes to skin diseases. Angelique has sun-induced hyperpigmentation and in my case skin cancer on my face, which I’ve had to operate on three times,” said Neuer in a press release.

“That’s why we have paid particular attention to ensuring that we no longer make any compromises when it comes to sun protection: Because I train outside all the time and also like to spend my free time in nature.”

Neuer has spent weeks on the sidelines with a shoulder injury, but the goalkeeper could return against Hertha this weekend, as confirmed by Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann.
