2 - He is the only goalkeeper in European football to win the treble of domestic league, domestic cup and UEFA Champions League twice.

4 - Neuer has been Bayern captain since 2017, when he became only the fourth goalkeeper in history (after Sepp Maier, Raimond Aumann and Oliver Kahn) to be given the armband.

5 - From 2013 to 2016, the Gelsenkirchen-native was named World's Best Goalkeeper by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS) four years in a row. He claimed the honour for a fifth time in 2020.

5 - Neuer is one of five players who took part in both of Bayern's trebles, in 2013 and 2020 (alongside Thomas Müller, David Alaba, Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez).
