Manuel Neuer Makes Unbelievable Double Save — And It Didn’t Count Because The Ref Hadn't Blown His Whistle

You gotta feel for the Bayern Munich goalkeeper. Early in the match against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday, an absolutely insane Manuel Neuer double save on Kevin Volland seemingly kept the German giants from going behind on an early penalty kick.

But because the referee hadn't blown his whistle before the penalty was taken, it was all for naught. The kick had to be retaken and Wendell stepped up to bury the second opportunity, giving Leverkusen an unlikely lead inside five minutes. 

Watch This Goalie Make An Excellent Catch 10 Yards Outside His Box And Get Sent Off

German Lux has excellent hands, and you can see them on dispay here. The River Plate goalkeeper's excellent catch against Independiente probably saved a goal and also got Lux sent off. Independiente won 1-0, but I think we all know who the real winner is.

Also, we should talk about how amazing a name "German Lux" is. We should LUXuriate in it, if you will.

Here are some possible professions for someone named "German Lux":

Casino Owner

Cult Leader


Cruise Ship Lounge Singer

Strip Club Bartender
