Bayern Munich 'keeper Tom Starke suffers ligament tear in training, will undergo operation

Oct 20, 4:41 PM

Bayern Munich's injury list grew a little bit longer on Friday, as the club announced that backup 'keeper Tom Starke is set to undergo surgery after suffering an injury in training.

While the operation may not come across as overly concerning given the fact that Starke has yet to play a single game this season, it leaves Bayern without any healthy backup 'keepers as Pepe Reina is still recovering from a serious calf muscle injury.

All fingers at the Allianz Arena will be crossed with the hope that Manuel Neuer isn't subject to an injury any time soon.
