Congratulations to Manuel Peter Neuer, captain of the German national team and one of the best goalkeepers of all times, for winning The BrandLaureate Legendary Award.
Regarded as one of the best and most complete goalkeepers in the world,
Neuer has been described as a “sweeper-keeper” with his unique playing style and speed, when anticipating and countering oncoming opponents.
Neuer who plays for Bundesliga club Bayern Munich has won many awards, including the 2014 FIFA World Cup with Germany, the Golden Glove award for being the best goalkeeper in the tournament, and is the current holder of the IFFHS World’s Best Goalkeeper award.
He has earned critical acclaim for his composure, concentration, mentality, and his ability to adapt to any situation on the pitch; besides his quick reflexes, excellent shot-stopping abilities, strength, long throwing range, accurate control and distribution of the ball, and command of the area.
Indeed Manuel Neuer is truly deserving to win The BrandLaureate Legendary Award in recognition of his outstanding football career, as one of the most talented and dynamic goalkeepers in the world.
