Manuel Neuer my role model – Nwabali reveals


Super Eagles goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabali has revealed that Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is his role model in football.

Nwabali stated that he enjoys viewing films of the German goalkeeper before games to keep himself motivated.

Speaking in an interview at the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Ivory Coast, Nwabali also said he loves playing the German on Play Station.

In the video shared by photojournalist Pooja on X on Monday, the Chippa United star said, “I love playing my PlayStation, I love watching my role model, I love watching Manuel Neuer even before my game.

“Even two days before my game, even in the dressing room, I always watch him, and even before my game, I always play my PlayStation.”

Nwabali has performed impressively for the Super Eagles at the AFCON so far.

The Chippa United goalie has kept four clean sheets and conceded only one goal.
