Schumacher going home says manager

More than eight months after his skiing crash last December, Michael Schumacher is finally going home.

The German weekly Bunte, citing sources at the rehabilitation clinic, reported last week that the F1 legend could leave Lausanne and return to his mansion on the shore of Lake Geneva by Christmas.

Actually, 45-year-old former Mercedes and Ferrari driver Schumacher's return home is happing "henceforce", his manager Sabine Kehm announced on Tuesday.

"Considering the severe injuries he suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months," read an official statement. "There is still, however, a long and difficult road ahead."

Indeed, the Bunte report last week insisted Schumacher, 45, still requires "constant assistance throughout the day", as his "motor, language and memory skills" have not been restored.

Kehm said on Tuesday that "massive changes in his health status" were not the reason for the decision to move Schumacher from rehabilitation to his home.

The statement also denied there has been "any rebuilding" at Schumacher's estate to facilitate his return.
