Neuer expecting hostile reception

17 September 2011 17:24

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is relishing the Bundesliga clash against his former club Schalke on Sunday.

The 25-year-old angered supporters of the Gelsenkirchen outfit when he joined rivals Bayern this summer for 18 million euros.

Neuer returned to the Veltins Arena for Germany's 6-2 victory over Austria in a Euro 2012 qualifier earlier this month, but the goalkeeper knows he is likely to receive a different reaction this weekend.

"I'm looking forward to the Schalke game. It will give me a chance to see my old colleagues and friends. It's going to be an interesting match for me," he told the Bundesliga's official website.

"The typical Schalke fan isn't exactly a big follower of the national team. I got a nice welcome back then, but I'm not expecting that this time round."

"I think some people might applaud when I enter the field though. Some people will understand my decision. At the end of the day, I'm entitled to pursue my own career."

Neuer has made eight appearances for the Bavarian club so far this season, conceding only one goal against Borussia Monchengladbach on the opening day of the Bundesliga season.
