Manuel Neuer probably never wanted to be a goalkeeper. Left at the mercy of circumstances though, the German has gone on to become one of the best custodians in the world.
Apart from being known for his skills under the bar, he has also gone on to redefine the role of a “sweeper keeper”, because of his excellent skills on the ball, and vision of passing.
In this video, the German keeper shows us exactly why he is arguably the best sweeper keeper right now, as he casually strolls up to a ball, and does a few insane tricks.
Well, insane for use, but a mere boring daily exercise for Neuer’s teammates at Bayern Munich’s training ground. Here is the video.
