Manuel Neuer named in world’s top three

Postby FCBayernNews » Mon Dec 01, 2014 5:45 pm

Manuel Neuer is a hot candidate for football’s most prestigious personal award after the FC Bayern keeper made the final shortlist of three for the FIFA Ballon d’Or 2014, the world governing body announced on Monday. The reigning World’s Best Keeper now takes on current holder Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid and four-time winner Lionel Messi of Barcelona for the title of World Player of the Year. Both Spain-based players also made the last three in 2013.

FIFA’s initial 23-strong list of contenders for the award included five more FC Bayern stars, namely World Cup winners Mario Götze, Philipp Lahm, Thomas Müller and Bastian Schweinsteiger, and Dutch ace Arjen Robben. After the initial poll among national team coaches and captains, Neuer not only represents Bayern in the final eliminator but also becomes the first goalkeeper to make the final list of three since Oliver Kahn in 2002.

Neuer will find out whether he has become the first keeper to win the Ballon d'Or since Lev Yashin in 1963 at the annual FIFA Gala at Zurich Kongresshaus on 12 January 2015.
