thumbnail Hello,

The World Cup winner is unfazed by the arrival of Pepe Reina from Liverpool and has no plans to leave the Bundesliga giants until the latter stages of his career

Manuel Neuer says there is no chance of him leaving Bayern Munich for a move abroad any time soon.

The goalkeeper lifted the World Cup with Germany over the summer and was rewarded for his performances with the Golden Glove award as the best No.1 at the tournament.

At club level, Neuer faces a renewed challenge between the posts following the arrival of Pepe Reina from Liverpool, but revealed he is more content than ever with life in Bavaria.

"Last season, until the end of March, we played the best football I've seen the club play and I want to continue to help Bayern progress," he told Kicker.

"I do not plan to move abroad. I could learn a new language one day, but this experience abroad can be done later.

"I would not rule it out, but at the moment I'm playing with one of the best teams, so I am in good hands."

At 28, the former Schalke man - who was booed upon signing for Bayern because of his ties with their Gelsenkirchen rivals - would appear to be entering his peak years.

And while he admits to suffering the occasional aching limb, Neuer pointed to the enduring quality of a Germany veteran as inspiration to continue long into his thirties.

"Roman Weidenfeller is still class at 34-years-old," he said. "I have a few more years ahead of me but at the moment it has been going well for me, even if I have a few aches and pains from time to time."
