Achieving his 302th Bundesliga victory, and running up after Oliver Kahn, who gained 310 ones overall, Bayern Munich and German national team star goalie Manuel Neuer has been tagged with such words by Die Roten boss, Julian Nagelsmann:
"The way he stopped that set-piece today was extraordinary. He's incredibly fast, incredibly reactive, you don't notice one bit that he's 35", the coach, who's himself a year younger than Neuer, said. Besides, Nagelsmann stated: "He's been the one player in several matches this year who's kept us in the game and held on to the points. He's still the best goalkeeper in the world".
Teammate of his Leon Goretzka added: "He's like a machine. He's been a constant over the years. That's world-class".
