Bayern Munich skipper Manuel Neuer praised Al Ahly’s goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy following their 2-0 victory in FIFA Club World Cup on Monday night.
Bayern Munich defeated Al Ahly in the semi-final of the Club World Cup thanks to a brace of Robert Lewandowski.
However, Hansi Flick’s men could have scored more if El Shenawy was not imperial in the sticks.
His performance has then caught the eyes of one Neuer who revealed he has been watching the 32-year-old so far.
