Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer believes he will be fit enough to play for German Champions in their upcoming Champions League game at Anfield against Liverpool, according to the ESPN reports.

The German international keeper had been nursing a hand injury, prompting concerns that he would not be available to play for Niko Kovac side as he prepared for the round of 1/16 tie against Liverpool.

However, the Bavarians skipper has allayed fears that he will miss the game against Liverpool on 19 February.

“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.

“It’s the first game for me at Anfield. I’m looking forward to playing there. We have heard a lot about the atmosphere in the stadium — everyone who watches football knows it’s special — and I think they will be two great games.”

The Merseyside Reds will be desperately hoping to beat Bayern Munich two-legged fixture when they welcome Bundesliga champions to Anfield later the end of the month.

Former Schalke keeper was sidelined for Bayern’s loss against Bayer Leverkusen at the start of February and also has missed the 3-1 victory against his former team.

However, as the crunch clash between Bayern Munich and Liverpool draws nearer, it seems Neuer is confident to face the Merseyside Reds on their own field.
