By Omar Lebbie

The following will be a weekly segment where I will present the players who performed the best this week in the world of soccer.

neuerGoalkeeper- Manuel Neuer (FC Bayern Munich)

Manuel has been playing exceptionally well for the past month, racking up many clean sheets. Bayern Munich, the team he represents, has only lost 1 game this season. A sensational performance so far which has a lot to do with Manuel.

Even though Samuel is officially recognized as a center back he plays in the left back role for Barcelona, and has been excelling in this position. A prime example was his exceptional form in Barcelona’s most previous game against Paris Saint- Germaine. He showed excellent confidence in himself and his teammates .
