Neuer, the 37-year-old is staying near the team and keeping an eye on Bayern Munich’s  progress in the Bundesliga as well.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup winner said: “We see each other every day on Säbener Strasse and talk to each other a lot, We’ve got it back in our own hands now. I’m sure that we will be German champions.”
