Goalkeeper “Bavaria” and German national team Manuel Neuer said that despite the 34-year-old age while not thinking about retirement:
“Each player has one career. When it ends, to return back no longer. If football would become my burden, I will do as Philipp Lahm. But now I’m still eager to play. Always there are trophies for which to compete.
What coach would put in the player who is the best? And I’m sure I’m the best, though I’m not 17 years old. The first issue of “Bavaria” and the national team is always in competition. In this respect, for me, little changes when the team comes a new goalkeeper”.
Recently Bayern have signed a strong competitor for Neuer – Alexander Nubes from Schalke.
