Manuel Neuer is the best goalkeeper ever’, says Jamie Redknapp.
Jamie Redknapp thinks Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is the best goalkeeper ever.
The Sky Sports pundit made the claim during his half-time analysis of Bayern’s Champions League semi-final clash against Barcelona.
While fellow pundits Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry remained more subdued, Redknapp dubbed Neuer the ‘best ever’ following an outstanding first half display in which the German shot stopper made several key saves.
Neuer kept the score at 0-0 early on by rushing from his line in trademark style to deny Barcelona striker Luis Suarez and continued his impressive form throughout the first 45 minutes.
Gianluigi Buffon, Peter Schmeichel, Gordon Banks and Dino Zoff are just a few goalkeeping names who could also lay claim to the ‘best ever’ accolade and the consensus on Twitter definitely wasn’t in favour of Redknapp’s view.
