Intro to soccer
Neuer began playing soccer before he was five years old. He initially wanted to play outfield in matches. His idol, however, was the local FC Schalke 04 goalkeeper Jens Lehmann, whom Neuer followed into the club’s second team when he made his debut in the Regionalliga Nord during the 2003–04 season. By the 2006–07 season, Neuer was becoming a first-team regular in the Bundesliga. He helped Schalke win two domestic cup trophies (2005 and 2011) and took international honors for his country at the under-18 (2004) and under-21 levels. At 6 feet 4 inches (1.93 metres) tall, Neuer was an imposing figure in the goal. Though he was primarily a shot stopper, he was also known for his instant reflexes and recovery. In addition, his command of the entire penalty area and ability to accurately kick or throw the ball to a teammate, often initiating offensive attacks, made him a standout goalkeeper. In 2008 he was nominated for the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Club Goalkeeper of the Year honors. The following year he helped Germany capture the UEFA Under-21 championship, beating England 4–0 in the final.

Professional career
In 2005, Manuel made his senior professional debut after having played for minor league since the age of 5 years for his hometown club. In the 2006-2007 Season Manuel made his Bundesliga debut with Schalke when he substituted for injured Frank Rost in the second match of the season. His amazing performance prompted the club to list him in the playing-eleven for the crucial match against Bayern Munich and managed a draw of 2-2 against the title defenders.
