Neuer can’t wait for Bernabeu return

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has claimed that he is looking forward to returning to Santiago Bernabeu.

The German champions have been drawn against Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals – a repeat of 2012’s clash.

And the shot-stopper has revealed that he can’t wait to come up against Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

“I'm looking forward to playing again at the [Santiago] Bernabeu,” he told reporters.

“I have many positive memories when I think about that stadium. It was crazy to win the second leg of the semi-final two years ago on penalties. 

“And I am curious about the mood in Madrid because Real and Atletico will play at home first. There will be supporters of all four semi-finalists in the city on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“It surely will be a big party.”
