I like Bundesliga, not going anywhere: Manuel Neuer

Munich, March 14 (IANS) Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer on Monday said he is not interested in moving to the English Premier League and that he is happy at the German club.

The gloveman has been recently linked with English Premier League heavyweights like Manchester City. Reportedly he was interested in following present Bayern coach Pep Guardiola’s footsteps, who will join City next season.

Neuer’s deal with Bayern will continue to run till June 2019.

“I am not affected by it (rumours of a transfer) predominantly because I like to play in the Bundesliga,” Neuer was quoted a saying by goal.com.

“I know the teams that play here and what type of football is played. I like the way our team plays very much.”

“I’ve still got a long-term contract, and everything is okay. It all fits.”

The 29-year-old said he feels comfortable at Bayern as he is a German himself and stays there in the country.

“Sometimes there are more lucrative offers, but they just don’t fit. That’s the most important thing at your club, because you live there. You have to feel comfortable. Then you can perform better,” he said.

Neuer also had lavish praises for Guardiola and even termed him as his “mentor”.

“I’ve trained under a lot of coaches and always picked up elements that develop a player,” he said.

“I am always looking forward to new tasks, new ideas of how to play football – Pep has given us a lot regarding all of that.”

“Especially the tactics, the football brains, how you interpret football, he is one of my biggest mentors.”
