Manuel Neuer: Number one in the DFB goal? Bayern Munich’s goalkeeper surprises with statement about Ter Stegen

“Currently,” Neuer also sees his long-time shadow man Marc-André ter Stegen “definitely” as number one in the DFB selection. Neuer had lost his place to the FC Barcelona goalkeeper because of his almost eleven-month injury break.

Ter Stegen’s club colleague Ilkay Gündogan also wears the captain’s armband under the new national coach Julian Nagelsmann.

Neuer reported that he was still in contact with Nagelsmann on Friday, who once trained him in Munich. “He wished me all the best for today and that’s why I’m totally relaxed,” he said. In general, he is “currently not at all” concerned with the DFB issue.

Rather, he is pleased that his comeback “went so well that I’m back again,” emphasized Neuer and added: “I’m looking forward to the next games and will put my foot down.”
