Manuel Peter Neuer (born March 27, 1986 in Gelsenkirchen-Buer ) is a German soccer goalkeeper . He comes from the youth of FC Schalke 04 , to whose first team he belonged from 2005. In 2011 he won the DFB Cup with Schalke 04 . He has been under contract with FC Bayern Munich since 2011 , with whom he won the triple of the German soccer championship , DFB Cup and UEFA Champions League in 2013 and 2020 . With the German national team he became world champion in Brazil in 2014 . He has been the captain of the national team since September 2016 and has been the team captain of FC Bayern Munich since summer 2017 .

Neuer is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world and one of the best of all time. Above all, his offensive interpretation of the goalkeeper position is seen as revolutionary. He is a four-time world goalkeeper and has been voted Germany's Footballer of the Year twice so far .

Youth and private life

Manuel Neuer grew up in Gelsenkirchen-Buer together with his older brother Marcel, who is active as a football referee in the Westphalian league . His father had moved from Baden-Württemberg to Gelsenkirchen to work for the police there.

After the 1999/2000 school year, Neuer switched from the secondary school in Gelsenkirchen-Buer to the newly founded football boarding school in Berger Feld , which he completed in 2006 with the technical college entrance qualification (school-based part after grade 12).

In parallel to football, Neuer played tennis at club level up to the age of 14 and still pursues the sport as a hobby. He is a member of the TG Gold-Weiß Gelsenkirchen tennis club and one of his role models is the former German tennis player Boris Becker .

Manuel Neuer is a Catholic ; in 2010 he founded his own foundation, the “Manuel Neuer Kids Foundation”, with which, among other things, he supports a project of the Catholic City Church of Gelsenkirchen against child poverty and a youth meeting of the order community of Amigonians . He has already presented several items to the charity auction platform United Charity , e.g. B. available signed jerseys to be auctioned for the benefit of his foundation.

Manuel Neuer was in a relationship with Kathrin Gilch from 2009 to 2014. They met on an airplane. She once moved to Bavaria for him when Neuer moved from Schalke to Munich for FC Bayern in 2011. The native of Upper Palatinate later ran a hairdressing business in Munich-Schwabing .

In August 2014 he met Nina Weiß. In June 2017 they got married in church in Monopoli, southern Italy . Previously, they were married in a civil ceremony in Tannheim (Tyrol) on May 21, 2017 . The separation became known in January 2020. Neuer separated from Nina Weiß due to different ideas about her near future.

By mistranslating his statement that it would be good for homosexual soccer professionals to come out because it would help others do the same, one South American media concluded that he was homosexual. The news has been taken up in many Spanish-speaking media and the rumor persists in Spanish-speaking countries. The Mexican Football Association was given a penalty after the 2018 World Cup game against Germany because the Mexican fans sang Neuer's homophobic chants when they hit the ball.

Club career

FC Schalke 04

Neuer, who joined FC Schalke 04 on March 1, 1991 , went through all of the club's youth teams . Already during his A-youth time he came to individual assignments in the second team. For the 2005/06 season , Neuer signed a professional contract and was number three in the Bundesliga team behind Frank Rost and Christofer Heimeroth . Twice he sat there on the bench and otherwise played in the league team. After Heimeroth left, he moved up to number two in goal for the 2006/07 season . On the second day of play he had to step in for the injured Frank Rost and played his first Bundesliga game on August 19, 2006 at the Tivoli against Alemannia Aachen . Shortly thereafter, Rost fell out of favor with coach Mirko Slomka and left the club for the winter break. Although Neuer was only 20 years old, he got the trust of Slomka and became by far the youngest goalkeeper in the Bundesliga. Neuer remained clean in 13 games during the season and reached the runner-up championship with the club. He often received good reviews for his modern game. With wide, precise drops, he repeatedly initiated attacks by his team. Neuer's Bundesliga colleagues voted him the best goalkeeper of the 2006/07 season.

For the 2007/08 season Schalke 04 brought in Mathias Schober an experienced goalkeeper, but Neuer remained the undisputed number one goal for the Gelsenkirchen team in the following years. He played all 34 games of the season in 2007/08 and also played a successful Champions League season . In the second leg of the second leg at FC Porto on March 5, 2008, he secured his team a place in the quarter-finals with a number of spectacular saves and two saved penalties in a penalty shoot-out . With his performance he created the basis for the greatest success of his club in the premier class to date.

The 2008/09 season was then less successful. A metatarsal fracture in preparation for the season forced him to take a longer break for the first time. The early exit in the European and DFB Cup was followed by 8th place in the championship, the worst place during Neuer's time at Schalke. The 2009/10 season was all the more successful , in which he was the only player on the team to play every minute of the Bundesliga and was runner-up with the team.

For the 2010/11 season , coach Felix Magath appointed the goalkeeper captain of the Schalke team after the former captain Heiko Westermann moved to Hamburger SV . Neuer reached the 2011 Champions League semi-finals with Schalke . He also won the DFB Cup in 2011 by defeating MSV Duisburg 5-0 with the Schalke team in the finals in Berlin . On April 20, 2011, the club announced that Neuer would not extend his contract with FC Schalke 04 , which ran until the end of the 2011/12 season .

FC Bayern Munich

2011/12 season

On June 1, 2011, FC Schalke 04 agreed to a club change, and a little later, FC Bayern Munich signed Neuer. After an international trip, he signed a contract on June 8, 2011, initially valid until June 30, 2016. In addition, his preferred goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalović , with whom he had already trained at Schalke 04, was signed.

The move to Bayern was controversial among many of the club's supporters. When the change was under discussion, numerous Bayern fans spoke out in favor of the previous goalkeeper Thomas Kraft with a slip of paper with the inscription “Koan Neuer!” ( Bair .: no new one ) at the cup match against FC Schalke . After his engagement, Neuer continued to be verbally attacked, especially by ultra groups of FCB.

Neuer played his first game for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga on the first match day of the 2011/12 season in the 0-1 defeat in the home game against Borussia Mönchengladbach , in which he played a decisive role in the goal. Afterwards, however, he set a new club record with 1147 minutes without conceding a goal across all competitions. In the Bundesliga, Neuer stayed 770 minutes without conceding a goal and thus rose to third place on the all-time list of the best. In his first season with FC Bayern Munich, he finished second in the Champions League, Bundesliga and DFB Cup. In the two cup competitions there were a total of three penalties , two of which were won thanks to Neuer and he converted a penalty himself against Chelsea in the Champions League final.

2012/13 season

In the 2012/13 season Neuer was in the Champions League game against BATE Baryssau in the absence of Philipp Lahm and after the substitution of Bastian Schweinsteiger for the first time as team captain for Bayern . On April 6, 2013, he secured the German championship prematurely with FC Bayern Munich on matchday 28 . For Neuer this was the first championship. On May 4, 2013, for the 32nd matchday, he led Bayern in the Bundesliga for the first time as team captain on the field. On May 25, 2013, he won the Champions League with FC Bayern when the team defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the final. On June 1, 2013, he won the final of the DFB Cup with FC Bayern 3-2 against VfB Stuttgart. With this, Neuer won the triple of championship, cup and Champions League with the club .

2013/14 season

On August 30, 2013, he won the UEFA Super Cup with the team against Chelsea FC . Neuer held the decisive penalty from Romelu Lukaku in the penalty shoot-out . On September 14, 2013, he completed his 100th Bundesliga match against Hannover 96 without conceding a goal. Without conceding a goal, he won the FIFA Club World Cup in Morocco on December 21, 2013 with FC Bayern Munich . On March 25, 2014 (27th matchday), Neuer was mathematically certain as German champions as early as no other club before. On May 17, 2014, he and his club also won the DFB Cup.

2014/15 season

On the 5th day of the 2014/15 season , Neuer played his 100th Bundesliga game for Munich against SC Paderborn 07 . In the 2014/15 season he overtook Oliver Kahn with 20 games without conceding a goal in one season , who had 19 games without conceding a goal in the 2001/02 season . In the end, Neuer was German champion for the third time in a row in 2015.

2015/16 season

After Bastian Schweinsteiger moved to Manchester United in the summer of 2015, he became the new vice-captain of FC Bayern. With the 2-1 away win against Hoffenheim on the second match day of the 2015/16 season , Neuer achieved his 100th Bundesliga victory for Bayern Munich in his 129th appearance. On September 16, 2015, the first matchday of the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League , he played his 50th European Cup game for Munich in a 3-0 away win against Olympiacos Piraeus . On December 19, 2015, he played his 300th Bundesliga game in a 1-0 away win against Hannover 96 . With the 1-0 win against Eintracht Frankfurt on April 2, 2016, he remained clean for the 150th time in his 311st Bundesliga game.

On May 7, 2016, Neuer became German champions for the fourth time in a row with FC Bayern . With only 17 goals conceded in the 2015/16 Bundesliga season, he improved his own record of 18 goals conceded earlier this season and also set a new record with 21 games without conceding. In addition, he won on May 21, 2016 in Berlin against Borussia Dortmund after a 4: 3 i. E. the DFB-Pokal and thus the double.

Season 2016/17

His contract with FC Bayern runs until 2021. In the quarter-final second leg of the UEFA Champions League on April 18, 2017 against Real Madrid , Neuer suffered a hairline crack in his left metatarsus and was therefore out for the rest of the season. In 2017 he became German champions for the fifth time in a row with FC Bayern Munich .

Season 2017/18

After Philipp Lahm's career ended at the end of the preseason, he became the new team captain of FC Bayern Munich. On September 18, 2017, he injured his left foot again during training, had an operation and was out for a long time. Before the 31st match day, the goalkeeper returned to team training, but was no longer used.

Season 2018/19

In the following season Neuer missed eleven competitive games due to minor injuries and was again represented by Sven Ulreich . While he was eliminated with FC Bayern in the “premier class” in the round of 16 against eventual winners Liverpool FC , he and the team won the national “triple” of championship, Supercup and DFB Cup. In 17 of his 38 compulsory games he did not have to accept a goal.

Season 2019/20

At the end of May 2020, Neuer and FC Bayern Munich extended the working paper, which was still valid for one year, early until June 2023. At the end of the season, Neuer won his eighth German championship in a row and also won the DFB Cup and Champions League for the second time after 2013 the triple.

National team

Manuel Neuer (2011)

Manuel Neuer went through several junior teams of the DFB and took part with the U19 in the European Championship 2005 . He played twice in the preliminary round and then in the semi-finals, which were lost 3-2 to France. At the beginning of 2006 he was named Gelsenkirchen's Sportsman of the Year due to his performance at the Junior European Championship 2005.

Shortly before his first Bundesliga game, Neuer played his first game for the U-21 national team on August 15, 2006 . He played against the Netherlands in the second half and showed a solid performance. His greatest international success in the junior area is winning the U-21 European Championship in Sweden in 2009 under national coach Horst Hrubesch , in which Neuer was involved as the reliable support of the German team. Neuer played a total of 20 games for the highest German junior team.

At the end of August 2007, the DFB invited him for the first time - as the fourth goalkeeper alongside Jens Lehmann , Robert Enke and Timo Hildebrand - to take the senior national team's fitness test . On May 19, 2009, Neuer was nominated for the first time by national coach Joachim Loew for the upcoming Asia trip of the DFB national team. On June 2, 2009 - before the U-21 European Championship - it was used for the first time in the international match against the United Arab Emirates (final score 7: 2 for Germany). He then played one half in a friendly against Ivory Coast, but was only a substitute goalkeeper behind René Adler . In preparation for the 2010 World Cup , he broke his rib, so that Neuer moved up to number one in Germany 's World Cup line- up. There he fulfilled his goalkeeping role in the six games up to the semi-finals, in which the team failed at the eventual world champions Spain. The game for third place was left to substitute goalkeeper Hans Jörg Butt .

New (2011) to the national team

After the 2010 World Cup, the German team's new goalkeeper remained. In qualifying for the 2012 European Championship from September 2010 to October 2011, he played all ten games in which the DFB-Elf did not lose points for the first time in their history. In the EM squad he was number one again and played all five games until he was eliminated in the semi-finals. Previously, in the quarter-finals on June 22, 2012, he beat Bernd Schuster's record (13 wins from May 22, 1979 to April 29, 1981) with his 14th win in the 14th consecutive game .

Neuer was named the team's regular goalkeeper for the 2014 World Cup . He played all seven World Cup games, including a 7-1 semi-final against Brazil . On July 13, 2014 Argentina was beaten 1-0 by Mario Götze's goal in the final and the German team became the first European team to be world champions in South America. Neuer was awarded the Golden Glove as the best goalkeeper at the 2014 World Cup.

On September 2, 2014, Neuer was appointed deputy to Bastian Schweinsteiger , who became the new captain of the national team after Philipp Lahm had resigned . Since Schweinsteiger was absent from the friendly against Argentina on September 3, 2014 due to injury, Neuer had his first appearance as captain.

At the 2016 European Championships , Neuer was in goal in all six games of the German team, the first five of which he played as deputy captain of Schweinsteiger. In the first four games up to the round of 16 he remained clean; in the quarterfinals against Italy he was defeated in regular time by a penalty. The game ended on penalties in which he saved two penalties. Jonas Hector converted the last penalty kick to victory for the German team. In the semifinals, hosts France took the lead with a penalty. In the 72nd minute, Neuer fended off a cross in such a way that it became a template for Antoine Griezmann , who scored the 2-0. It was the only goal the German team conceded out of the game.

After Bastian Schweinsteiger's resignation as a national player, Neuer has been the captain of the national team since September 2016.

The 2018 World Cup was Neuer’s first tournament as a team captain. Although Neuer - after a long injury break - was only able to play the first test matches immediately before, the national coach determined him to be No. 1 in goal. In the group games, Neuer was not rated badly, but he did not succeed in making it into the round of 16 and Germany was eliminated for the first time in World Cup history after the preliminary round.

After the World Cup, Neuer commented in a sport1 interview about his departure from the World Cup and the resignation of his long-time national team colleague Mesut Özil . Neuer commented rather cautiously about Özil's resignation, saying that this was a topic that was "very exhausting" for those who had read everything (Özil published his declaration of resignation in three parts on the social network Twitter ). The resignation of Özil is accepted, it is the free decision of each individual player to decide whether he wants to leave or not; Everyone has to look for the reasons for this for themselves and Özil found them. Racism , as Özil accused the DFB President Reinhard Grindel , did not experience Özil in the team. When asked why he hadn't commented on Özil's resignation earlier, Neuer said that firstly, vacation after the World Cup was the order of the day and secondly, he wasn't asked, and he learned that if you weren't asked, you also don't have to say anything. This “non-attitude” has been partially criticized by the press. To retire from the World Cup and the necessary rebuilding, Neuer said that "some things have to be changed". In addition, players are needed again who “are really proud to play for the national team”. This passage was criticized by the press because it was viewed as a criticism of Özil, even though Neuer did not name Özil. However, the passage immediately followed the passage about Özil's resignation, which is why a link was established. After that, Neuer was criticized by Özil's advisor Erkut Sögüt for indirectly accusing Özil of not having worn the German national jersey with pride. Neuer ended the subject by saying that he didn't know Sögüt and didn't know who he was.


On October 12, 2005, Neuer received the Fritz Walter Silver Medal for outstanding performance on and off the field.

At the 2008 UEFA Club Football Awards , he was the only German nominated for the best club goalkeeper of the year . The following year, UEFA placed him as the only German goalkeeper for election to the UEFA Team of the Year . In 2011, Neuer took tenth place in the preliminary round of voting for the best club footballer of the year . In the same year he was the first FC Schalke 04 player to be voted Footballer of the Year by German sports journalists .

In the 2012 world goalkeeper election , Neuer took fourth place. On January 6, 2014, Manuel Neuer was elected World Goalkeeper 2013 by the IFFHS . Neuer received the most votes for the first time and prevailed against his competitors Gianluigi Buffon and Petr Čech . He was also elected to FIFA / FIFPro World XI . In the online poll of UEFA , he was also in the UEFA Team of the Year 2013 selected. In 2014, Neuer was voted Germany's Footballer of the Year for the second time since 2011 . In the same year he finished second behind Cristiano Ronaldo and in front of his teammate Arjen Robben in the election of European Footballer of the Year, and third behind Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the election of World Footballer of the Year .

The opinion of the former Argentine national and world champion coach Cesar Luis Menotti received special attention from the football public , especially since he announced it before the World Cup final Germany - Argentina 2014: Neuer is not only the best goalkeeper of the present, but the best "of all time" .

Neuer was the first player to reach the DFB Cup finals four times in a row . After winning the cup with Schalke 04 in 2011, he played three more finals with Bayern Munich in 2012.


National team




Neuer appeared on November 17, 2011 as part of the “RTL Spendenmarathon 2011” in the celebrity special of the quiz show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire . That evening he won 500,000 euros in aid of the Manuel Neuer Kids Foundation .

In 2013, Neuer dubbed the character "Frank McCay" in the film Die Monster Uni .

2014/15 was a new testimonial in advertising for Coke zero . Based on this dialogue, so-called Manuel Neuer jokes arose, mostly in the form: "Maybe I am not / it is not [any thing or phrase], but Manuel Neuer". Some of these jokes took on a character comparable to the Chuck Norris Facts .
