Manuel Peter Neuer ( born 27 March 1986) is a German professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper and captains both Bundesliga club Bayern Munich and the Germany national team. He is regarded as one of the greatest goalkeepers in the history of the sport.Neuer started his career at Schalke 04 where he won the DFB-Pokal and DFL-Ligapokal. In 2011, he signed for Bayern Munich and has since won 27 trophies, including ten Bundesliga titles and two UEFA Champions League titles in 2013 and 2020, both as part of trebles. In 2014, Neuer finished third in the voting for the FIFA Ballon d’Or award behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He was awarded the UEFA Goalkeeper of the Year and the IFFHS World’s Best Goalkeeper five times each.
Neuer was selected as Germany’s number one goalkeeper for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. During the group stages, he only conceded a single goal. He provided the assist for Miroslav Klose’s opening goal against England as Germany won 4–1. Four years later, Neuer won the 2014 FIFA World Cup with Germany as well as the Golden Glove award for being the best goalkeeper in the tournament. Neuer has been described as a “sweeper-keeper” because of his playing style and speed when rushing off his line to anticipate opponents. He was named the best goalkeeper of the decade from 2011 to 2020 by IFFHS.
I like this footballer because he is a goalkeeper with remarkable reflexes, he doesn’t limit his action to the penality area, but he buids the action of the game by acting as a free adjunct, moreover, he has an ecellent ball control and he is precise!
A curiosity? he participated in the TV program in Germany Wer wird millionaire? and he won 500,000 euros. He is considered one of the most talented goalkeeper.
