Manuel Neuer's 'One Touch' Throw Pass Is The Most Manuel Neuer Thing Ever

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is known for his unusual and creative distribution methods.

The 34-year-old German shot-stopper gave the term 'sweeper-keeper' a completely new meaning when he burst onto the Bundesliga scene.

Neuer can often be seen rushing off his goal-line in an attempt to aid his teammates, completely disregarding his goal-line to become the eleventh outfield player.

Some go as far as saying Neuer 'revolutionised' goalkeeping with his forward-thinking, intelligent play and in last night's Champions League clash against Lazio, he gave us another moment of brilliance.


To get past Lazio's high press, Neuer picked up the ball at the edge of the box and quickly threw the ball to full-back Alphonso Davies like a scrum-half would in rugby.

Although it looked rather funny, he managed to find his man and Bayern went on the attack.

To be fair, Neuer was probably a tad bored when he pulled off such a bizarre move.

The German didn't have to do much in Tuesday's Champions League clash against the Serie A side as Bayern secured an emphatic 4-1 at the The Stadio Olimpico.

Robert Lewandowski, Jamal Musiala and Leroy Sane gave the Bundesliga outfit a 3-0 lead after just 42 minutes - and an own goal from Francesco Acerbi sealed Lazio fate, although they did manage a consolation early in the second.

It was another straight-forward win for Hansi Flick's side as they continue their longest unbeaten away streak in Champions League history.

Can Bayern win the Champions League this year?

Let us know in the comments.
