8. No goal keeper has won the Ballon D’or since 50 Years.
When was the last time when a Shot stopper won the laurel of Best Football player on the planet?
It was 1953 and the one who won that was none other than Lev Yashin himself who is regarded as one of the Greatest Goal keepers of all time. Since then, clouds never really appeared in the drought of Goalkeepers which would help them to get considered as the Finest ‘Footballers’ on Earth.
Even Legends like Iker Casillas and Oliver Kahn couldn’t break the barriers, however, this time it really seems like Manuel Neuer would be able to bring this into fruition. Moreover, the Bayern Munich goalkeeper is deserving and a serious contender to win the most exquisite award a Footballer can wish. Neuer’s goalkeeping skills has easily reflected his essence which is good enough to label him as ‘FIFA World Player of the year’.
