Bayern München and Germany captain Manuel Neuer has received a lot of criticism for his performances lately.
It has been argued that the 32-year-old hasn't been able to reproduce his previous form after returning from a long-term injury, but France keeper Hugo Lloris says the criticism is unfair as Neuer has proved in the past just how great a goalkeeper he is.
"Judging by all that he has done for Bayern and Germany, this discussion is not fair. It's not easy if you haven't played football for nearly a year. His level is still high, and he's a great goalkeeper," Lloris told Sport1 and added:
"He's simply the best for me. There shouldn't be any doubt about Manuel Neuer. He's such a fantastic player, and he'll prove it again in the future."
Neuer was named the IFFHS World's Best Goalkeeper four times in a row between 2013 and 2016.
