Yes it is and these two instances against Atletico Madrid shows why
Manuel Neuer reached a mega milestone and further cemented his reputation as a Bayern legend as he registered his 200th clean sheet last night.
The Bundesliga outfit made light work of Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid as they romped to a 4-0 win at the Allianz Arena.
A brace from Kingsley Coman and a goal apiece for Leon Goretzka & Corentin Tolisso (sensational banger) gave Hansi Flick’s men a perfect start to their 20/21 UEFA Champions League campaign.
Neuer had little to do as Atletico registered only one shot on target during the game.
Atletico weren’t going to challenge so the Bayern stopper took it upon himself to get involved and ended up having more touches (62) on the ball then Luis Suarez (32).
Taking a nap during a Champions League match
Football comes easy for Neuer as he was seen ‘taking a nap’ in the 82nd minute of the game last night.
No goalkeeper should be allowed to feel so relaxed during a match, let alone a Champions League match –

The sheer nonchalance to dismiss a volley from Joao Felix with a volley of his own
Albeit the whistle was blown, further evidence of football being a joke for Neuer arrived later in tha game as he casually kicked out at an attempt at goal from Joao Felix –

Neuer’s record with the German giants is vulgar. The Bayern ace has played 394 matches for the club, with 200 clean sheets and won 23 titles along the way.
