Manuel Neuer nearly comes unstuck after risky Cruyff turn

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is getting a bit too big for his boots. It's surely only a matter of time before he's made to pay for his arrogant showmanship given the frequency of his showboating in the Bundesliga.

The Germany international was at it again during Saturday's 4-0 win over Hoffenheim, pulling off a cheeky Cruyff turn to evade opposition striker Kevin Volland, who was bearing down on him on the edge of the six yard line.

As has become customary with Neuer, the 6ft 4in stopper kept his cool and managed to safely navigate his way out of danger, relying once again on the sort of composure that is uncharacteristic in the majority of elite level custodians.

There's no denying that Neuer's impressive attribute is entertaining for the majority of supporters, but his professional peers will undoubtedly be looking to capitalise on any unforced error in an attempt to gain some vengeance on the 28-year-old.

Annoyingly for many fellow footballers the Bayern star's technical capability with the ball at his fee is not the only magnificent part of his make-up, because Pep Guardiola's current No.1 is equally adept with his hands, and is regarded as one of the best shot stoppers in world football.

Check out Manuel Neuer's latest piece of skill - which was uploaded by the Bundesliga's official YouTube channel - in the video below, and feel free to share some other classic clips of the legendary 'Cruyff turn' being used in the modern game!
