Koen Casteels is the best goalkeeper in the Bundesliga alongside Manuel Neuer, according to Wolfsburg coach Mark van Bommel.

"Koen has improved every year," van Bommel told UEFA.com after Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Lille in the Champions League, which saw Casteels keep his fourth clean sheet in six games this season.

"He's moved up another level. With Manuel [Neuer] he’s the best goalkeeper in the Bundesliga," added the Dutch coach.

Van Bommel admitted he was happy to take a point in France, especially after Wolfsburg centre-back John Anthony Brooks was sent off in the 63rd minute.

"It was a tough 90 minutes. When you play 35 minutes with ten men away from home, you have to be happy with a point," said the Wolfsburg coach.
