Arminia Bielefeld might not have won yesterday’s match against Bayern Munich, but it used its best asset to capture the heart of Manuel Neuer. A true appreciator of turf, Neuer could not keep his eyes off of Arminia Bielefeld’s sweet grass. There is no doubt that Neuer views Bielefelder Alm as one sultry pitch.
Don’t believe us? Well, then just listen to Neuer go grass-to-mouth:
Manuel Neuer: "We performed well today. The pitch was great, compliments to the groundsman. It was important for us today to score goals and defend well. Unfortunately we conceded one goal, but we still scored four. That speaks for our strong attack"— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) October 17, 2020
The big question now is if Neuer truly has his eyes on another pitch? Should the Allianz Arena feel insecure? Only Neuer knows for sure, but let’s just say that the man can never have enough good grass.
Digging deeper into that grass...is Neuer taking subversive shots at the groundskeeper at the Allianz Arena? I don’t want to start any trouble, but Neuer clearly admires a man who knows his way around some good grass.
Whatever the case, Neuer eyeing up a new pitch after all these years probably shouldn’t be too much a scandal. Any goalkeeper worth his weight in sod, is never satisfied with just quality grass — they tend to think it is always greener on the other side.
