Manuel Neuer hangs out in the center circle during Champions League match

Shakhtar Donetsk’s Olexandr Kucher earned the fastest red card in Champions League history in the third minute of his side’s round of 16 second-leg match against Bayern Munich. So Bayern took this as an unnecessary invitation to run wild, scoring seven goals over the next 84 minutes of play. And with Shakhtar pinned back, Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer took the opportunity to play his favorite position: anywhere he wants.

Bayern’s official Twitter account then wrote Neuer a message from his old friend, the center circle. It reads: “Hello, Manuel Neuer! I’m glad to see that you’ve come to visit me again. Many greetings, The Center Circle.”

    Manuel Neuer best GK in the world and I’m not even a Bayern fan. Should have won the Ballon d’Or as he has changed the modern game and was top dog last year in my opinion. I would really like to see him bring a rocking chair out while knitting during a match.
