Crazy Germany stopper takes a wild chance – and it pays off…just.
Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is known for being rather flamboyant, and this weekend he took that to a whole new level during this weekend’s 4-0 victory over Hoffenheim as he dangerously got away with escaping an opponent with a Cruyff turn.

Many people’s choice for the Ballon d’Or, Neuer almost always shows his skills as an outfielder and Pep Guardiola has confirmed that the Bayern number one spends a lot of time developing his ball skills in training.
As Hoffenheim’s Kevin Volland closed in, the Germany international copied the former Dutch international by bamboozling his opponent, scraping the ball out to his nearest defender.
It’s great that a goalkeeper has the confidence to pull off such a move, but you can guarantee that the Bayern fans had their hearts in their mouths.
