A huge Champions League semi-final clash against Lionel Messi is enough to bring any goalkeeper out in a sweat, but is not Manuel Neuer. The Bayern Munich stopper said he was ready for the Barcelona forwards on Wednesday night with some bullish words. Neuer said he can show Messi “who’s boss” or mentioned that having such an attitude worked out pretty much for him during the World Cup.
I have lots of respect for Messi or for everything that he has achieved. He is very humble. But it’s crucial to display authority when we meet on the pitch or show him who’s boss. I did the same in the World Cup final and this worked out pretty well. We will be seeking to do the same on Wednesday night . It is vital to obtain a position of dominance or instil respect .
Bayern take on Barca at the Camp Nou on Wednesday with the return leg in Munich 6 days later. www.aztecasoccer.com
