Manuel Neuer Mistake

Top keepers make mistakes too…

March 22, 2015

As a Keeper we have all had bad matches and beat ourselves up about it and usually get a good ribbing from our team mates about our mistakes, however today’s post shows that it can happen to the best keepers (literally the BEST) as today Manuel Neuer and Thibaut Courtois have both had days to forget.

Unfortunately for them, the internet never lets goalkeepers get away with mistakes! So rather than criticize them for making a mistake, watch these videos and realise that when you are having a bad game, it happens to us all!

Firstly Neuer, who many believe to be the worlds best keeper right now let a shot slip through his grasp and trickle over the line (despite his best efforts to pretend otherwise!).

Then Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois showed us all why goalkeepers shouldn’t take risks with the ball at their feet! A ridiculously heavy first touch passed the ball directly to the Hull City player to simply pass into the gaping net. It remains to be seen if Mourinho will stick with the Belgian or once again return to Petr Cech who hasn’t conceded a goal in any of his 5 Premier League matches in the Chelsea goal.

One thing is for sure, both are top quality keepers and we are sure they will be back to their sensational best in no time at all!
