Andre Onana picks Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer as the Goalkeeper he looks up to as an idol


Andre Onana revealed Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer is the Goalkeeper who inspires him the most. He also praised the 37 Year-old for modernizing and changing the role of Goalkeepers.


In an interview with United Inside, Andre Onana had the following to say about the Bayern Munich legend, Manuel Neuer.


Well, who has inspired me the most?” he told Inside United. “That is a very good question because, being a goalkeeper and especially trying to be a modern goalkeeper, you have to look to a lot of goalkeepers. If I had to choose one who made me think differently, I would say Manuel Neuer.


“Why? Because of his way, the way he plays. At the World Cup in 2014, I remember, when they won in Brazil. When I was watching that World Cup, I found someone I wanted to look like, he made me think differently.

“Obviously, before him, I was still in the Academy but I had a lot of goalkeepers I was looking up to and who I was thinking of. But, if I have to choose one, I would say Neuer. He made me think differently.”


When pushed on what it is that Onana most admires in the 37-year-old, he explained: “You know, he’s a modern goalkeeper and a modern goalkeeper, for me, that means he takes a lot of responsibility and deals with all the pressure.


“You are the spare man and the team has to use you as a normal player, you know. So you are the plus one most of the time. So, for me, he is one of the best at doing this and I say it’s a big honour to speak about him.”


“For me, he is still the king because, when you look at that position especially, I think it’s the position that has changed the most in the last 20 years,” he reasoned. “The goalkeeper now is a plus one, so you have to deal with the situation.


“He’s a big personality, a big guy. He assumes everything is upon me and he is a good one to look up to.”
