I dont know why lots of peaple say manuel neuer is the best The only reason he gets to have clean sheats its beacause of its teams defence line bayern has one of the strongest defence lines and germany to. The best is definetly yashin. Only little kids with the average age of 13 say he is the best because the havent seen van der sar, buffon, oliver khan and rogerio ceni
