Neuer: I'll need to iron my lederhosen

Manuel Neuer hoisted the DFB Cup into the Berlin night sky two years ago with his former club Schalke, but on Saturday he will fulfil a lifelong dream when he lays hands on the Bundesliga championship shield for the first time. “It’ll certainly be a very special moment. I'll take it as it comes," the Bayern keeper exclusively told

It will be a day of firsts for the Germany number one, with his first title triumph, and a first appearance on Munich Town Hall balcony as a champion. The 27-year-old has his lederhosen at the ready, but revealed he is unsure of the whereabouts of the rest of his traditional Bavarian garb. Manuel also spoke about the upcoming finals against Dortmund and Stuttgart.
