Neuer Set to Captain Bayern

Since the retirement of club legend and inspirational captain Phillip Lahm earlier this year, there has been plenty of speculation in the local media about which player will adopt the armband from the outgoing 33-year-old. Names including Jerome Boateng and Thomas Muller were both rumoured to be in the running to adopt some extra responsibility this campaign but the club have recently announced that the captaincy will be handed to goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

The Bayern number one has been at the club since 2011 making over 170 appearances for the Bundesliga champions since finalising his €22million transfer. The 31-year-old has already captained the national side and can boast a World Cup winners medal and five domestic titles.
