Bayern Munich have reacted to Manuel Neuer's long-term injury by naming retired goalkeeper Tom Starke, now a coach in their academy, in their Champions League squad.

Bayern face Paris Saint-Germain away on Wednesday in a key match in a Group B which also contains Celtic and Anderlecht.

Starke, 36, has been Bayern's goalkeeping coordinator in their academy since the start of the season having retired in May. Neuer is out until January after fracturing his foot, so Sven Ulreich is now Bayern's first-choice goalkeeper with academy product Christian Fruechtl, 17, acting as his back up.
