Goal.com: The German spoke of his chances of beating the holder to the upcoming Fifa award for best player in the world, suggesting it takes more than commercial savviness to win.
LOL! Can't see him beating Ronaldo to it but if he did I could see why people would vote for him.
He's the best goalkeeper in the world but these awards look at goalscorers more than anything else. Don't think that criticism is going to affect Ronaldo in any way lol.
not goal scorers particularly but rather every aspect of a player. at least that what it used to be when the likes of Figo, nedved, cannavaro, ronaldinho and kaka won it. but i think since 2008 when Ronaldo and messi started smashing records, it was hard to just pick anyone else. which other player on the field is constantly smashing records for their position? if Oliver Kahn didnt win a ballon d'or i dont see neuer winning one. mind you, i think they both deserve one coz both of them are/were great keepers.
Never a goalkeeper though no matter how good a goalie is he's never going to get this award.
if Schmeichel, Kahn and Buffon...best goalkeepers never gets it, Neuer won't too.
He's a great goalkeeper and attackers always get favoured but Messi and Ronaldo will go down as two of the all time great players. Like ALL time greats, probably top 5 players in the history of the game- their stats back that up. I do believe we'll talk about them later alongside Maradona and Pele. Ronaldo for example has a better goals/game ratio over his near 300 odd apps for the club than ANYONE to play more than a few games for Real Madrid ever, which is something to behold when you think of the quality of the attackers they have fielded before! We're talking legendary Puskas and Di Stefano beating stats here. Neuer however good he is, probably isn't in my top 5 all time GK list at the moment which he would probably have to be to win it against the Messi/Ronaldo combo.
"I do believe we'll talk about them later alongside Maradona and Pele." - we already can. Take this as an example http://www.aerasnews.gr/wp-... He is only 27!!
Difference is Neuer isn't a c***
