Since the age of two Manuel has been keen on soccer, and as he grew, his interest only became greater. He joined Schalke 04 in 1991, and passed through its youth system, before making a debut for the first team in 2006-2007 season, replacing injured Frank Rost, however, he eventually took Rost’s place permanently. During his rookie season, Manuel made 27 appearances, and although young, he was dubbed as the new Jens Lehman. Little by little Neuer became one of the leaders of Schalke, and for the 2010-2011 season, he was named captain. Unfortunately, he had outgrown Schalke’s ambitions, and decided not to extend his contract after the season. Instead, he joined Bayern Munich for a transfer worth €22 million, which made him the second most-expensive goalkeeper at that time, after Gianluigi Buffon.
Manuel continued to improve his form, and in the 2012 UEFA Champions campaign, Neuer saved some crucial penalties, including in semi-finals against Real Madrid, when he stopped penalties from Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo, and in the final against Chelsea, as he stopped Juan Mata’s penalty, but that wasn’t enough to win the trophy.
Nevertheless, that didn’t discourage Neuer, as he and the rest of his team won the German Super Cup, and the same season had four consecutive clean sheets, including against the Italian side Juventus and Spanish giant Barcelona, and Bayern won the trophy in the final against Borussia Dortmund. Since Neuer’s arrival on Allianz Arena, Bayern has won four consecutive Bundesliga titles, three German cup titles, in 2012-2013, 2013-2014 and 2015-2016, the UEFA Super Cup in 2013 and FIFA World Club Cup in 2013. He has become a senior in the team, and behind captain Phillip Lahm, grown into a leader of the team too.
Apart from success at a club level, Manuel has also had success with German National team, winning the FIFA World Cup in 2014, while also winning FIFA World Cup Golden Glove that year, and was named into the FIFA World Cup All-Star Team, FIFA World Cup Dream Team, and AIPS Athlete of the Year, all in 2014.
To speak further of his accomplishments, Neuer has been named Footballer of the Year in Germany on two occasions, in 2011 and 2014, while he has been UEFA Goalkeeper of the Year four times, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
