Player Profile: Manuel Neuer

A baby-faced member of the German Under-21 side that triumphed at the 2009 European championships, Neuer’s main assets are his sharp reactions and superior distribution by hand or foot.

However, he can suffer lapses in concentration and will come under the spotlight if he replaces the injured Rene Adler. Still, experience will ease his progress and Neuer has certainly improved since he was first called up to the senior national team for a tour of Asia at the end of last season.

He has been with hometown club Schalke since the age of five and likes nothing better than to clamber up the stadium fencing and celebrate a victory with the club’s fans. Schalke coach Felix Magath calls him the ‘public face of the club’, but rumours are rife that he may be on the move soon to Bayern Munich.

    I prefer Alder but after seeing Neuer played in the tournament so far, I think he’s done a very good job.

    Neuer,another Oliver Khan in the making!
    Mr.Khan pls ”believe” in your team.

    What a disgrace to his country and humanity is the german goalkeeper.
    To actually admit he knew the ball was over the line in the disallowed English goal is an indictment on not only his character but those of his team and coach who states he is ‘ so proud of them’.
    Have they never heard of honesty and integrity… what price is this compared to the salaries they demand
    Shame on you!!!!!!!!!

      Graham, I have to disagree with you. It is very unfortunate that Neuer “appears” to be cheating. However, the decision of whether it was a goal or not was not his to make. It was the referee. No player in that situation would have admitted that it was a goal. If the referee waves play on, they get on with it and both referee and linesman clearly did not see the goal.

      1) It isn’t his job to say if the ball is over the line or not.

      2) He commands a much lower salary than so called “wonder boy” Wayne Rooney…

  19. MissWrong September 21, 17:59

    I think Manuel is too sentimental about the football. I think Casillas did it by making the judgment of the ball instead of the person. But he could only managed to achive it as Casillas. What I think is he is friendly to each person who was trying to score. With this thought he had in heart, then he could achive it. Because I watched him against Germans, and I thought he reacted to the ball while all the other keepers to the persons.

  20. bhala October 1, 12:56

  27. chris March 6, 04:18

    I couldn’t believe it when I came across the news and it read there was something happened between the fans and Manuel Neuer. I was thinking were there any people lost their way when driving to see the doctor? Or what is the problem? Why should they show that they were against him? But I have been thinking these days, Neuer has been abused by the football industry. Otherwise, he should have a happier life himself.

  28. S.L. March 7, 06:57

    So why didn’t people say what they want to Neuer right after Italy 1:1 Germany? How could you win without the help from this goalkeeper? And see who is on the other side? The one who is much older and more expeirenced than this young man. But I wish Neuer had played tennis now. Because I have no idea what he did was wrong. Now he was cleared because Philip Lahm said he is a good man. Who is Philip Lahm? How can he do this when a young hero has done so much to his country but got blame in return? And he wasn’t feeling disappointed? I was.
