The German captain explained why the Golden Ball was mainly for the strikers
Bayern (Munich) leader Manuel Neuer is not surprised that over the years, strikers have dominated the Golden Ball rankings. Throughout this, Liverpool defender Virgil van Dyke came close to breaking the tradition but was second behind Lionel Messi.
The results: Van Dyke was barely able to beat Messi
Now Van Dyke was second, not normal, and when I was third in 2014, the German goalkeeper commented. - But what do you watch more on YouTube and Instagram, after all? Martial Arts and Ball Grabbing or Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo`s Goals and Goals? This is why offensive players take the prize.
The guard also commented on the difference in Bayern`s game after the change of coaches after Hans Flicch replaced Nico Kovac in early November: We now defend much higher and close the spaces between the lines better. We no longer leave any free zones of 20 meters, and now they are 10-15 meters. This facilitates communication between the players, which helps us and puts the opponent under pressure.
