FC Bayern’s Neuer is World’s Best Goalkeeper

By  Friday, 8.1.2016, 16:57    Bayern Munich

FC Bayern Munich and Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has been named the World's Best Goalkeeper for the third consecutive year. In the 29th running of the poll organised by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS) among editorial staff and experts from 50 countries and chosen from all the football continents, the Bayern keeper received 188 points, ahead of Juventus Turin veteran Gianluigi Buffon with 78 points and Claudio Bravo of the FC Barcelona with 45 points.

“I’m obviously delighted about this treble, but trophies with the team are naturally more important. That’s what we’re working towards here,” Neuer exclusively informed fcbayern.de at the Doha training camp where the team is preparing for the second half of the season. A third World's Best Keeper crown means Neuer has now caught up with Bayern legend Oliver Kahn, Walter Zenga of Italy and Paraguay’s Jose Luis Chilavert. Only four-time winner Buffon (Italy) and Iker Casillas (Spain) with five wins have topped the poll more often.
