The goalkeeper is now officially The Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper 2020 – Congratulations, Manuel Neuer! As part of the virtual Best FIFA Football Awards, the FC Bayern captain won the award on Thursday evening, beating Alisson Becker and Jan Oblak.
“It was certainly one of the best years of my career, and what we did was incredible. It was fantastic, particularly in the summer in Lisbon,” said the German national goalkeeper.
“It’s a difficult time for all of us without the fans in the stadium. In our squad, we have a great attitude, we play for the fans and we give our best in every game,’ continued Neuer, who entered the Munich virtual display.”
Countless brilliant saves, dismissing top strikers, and several other highlights – in 2020, Neuer played sensationally: it couldn’t have gone any better. His contribution to the triple win is undisputed and the FCB keeper has consistently shone in the new season, including most recently against Wolfsburg when he celebrated his 200th victory in the Bayern jersey in the Bundesliga. Fcbayern.com commends the goalkeeper for his well-deserved award as the 2020 Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper.
