Manuel Neuer's Shithousery During Champions League Match Was Well Worth The Yellow Card

Manuel Neuer produced an incredible moment of shithousery during Bayern Munich's Champions League fixture against Red Bull Salzburg.

Bayern made it four wins from four group stages matches by beating Salzburg 3-1 on Wednesday, largely thanks to Neuer who starred in net.

He recorded an incredible 10 saves, conceding just once as his side qualify for the Champions League knockout phase.

But he will be most remembered for his smart piece of thinking in the opening stages when the score was goalless.

As ever, the German keeper came off his line to deal with a ball in behind.

He managed to intercept play before cleverly stalling Salzburg's attack.

Neuer hilariously kicked a spare ball onto the pitch off the advertising hoardings so play couldn't restart then jumped all over his opponent as he re-entered the field.

He got booked for his troubles but more importantly, for Bayern, stopped the visitors from creating a chance.

Fans on social media love Neuer's shithousery.

One Twitter user wrote: "That was funny. And smart."

A second tweeted: "He just ran into the guy taking the throw-in? Looking back at this moment if they win it this season."

A third joked: "Dub showed ter stegen how it's done."

The Champions League holders have booked their place in the next round with two games to spare.

And speaking after his side's 3-1 victory, Hansi Flick spoke glowingly about his goalkeeper.

"Manu has been playing sensationally for over a year. With him, the goal for the striker is getting smaller and smaller," he said.

"He is in the form of his life. He is an insane professional and very focused on his job

"We made our way a little difficult because we lost a lot of balls - the ball losses must not happen like this.

"That is insecurity and recklessness. Of course, we have personnel problems at the moment.

"It got better in the second half. I'm satisfied with the efficiency and, of course, we have a world-class goalkeeper at the back."
