‘World’s Best Goalkeeper’ Manuel Neuer’s Meme-Worthy Celebration In Bayern Munich Win
Manuel Neuer produced the outstanding celebration of the week after Bayern Munich sealed a 1-0 win over RB Leipzig.
One late goal from evergreen stalwart Franck Ribery was enough for Niko Kovac’s side to grab all three points at the Allianz Arena and keep them firmly in title contention.
The German goalkeeper got did his best audition for Dexy’s Midnight Runners in his goal after observing Ribery’s strike to separate the two teams. Knees and elbows were in tandem as the Allianz erupted.
Following Borussia Dortmund’s 2-1 loss to relegation Fortuna Dusseldorf at the Merkur Spiel-Arena earlier in the week on Tuesday evening, Munich knew they had to seize their chance to gain ground on die Schwarzgelben, and the two results for both original frontrunners have reignited the title race.
Munich, searching for their seventh successive Bundesliga title, are six points adrift of Lucien Favre’s table toppers, separated by Borussia Monchengladbach.
Neuer has been with Die Bayern since 2011, and though the Germany Number One has won everything possible to win with them at club level, his latest eccentricities are proof that he’s at passionate at gaining glory as he ever was.
Along with the seven titles, Neuer has won three DFB Pokals, DFL Supercups, and was fundamentally part of the team that achieved the continental treble in 2013.
Dortmund, meanwhile, haven’t won a title since 2012, when current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was in charge.
Klopp in fact faces Munich in the Champions League Round of 16 beginning in February.
