Manuel Neuer: “We lacked commitment. Even if we would’ve gone through, in the next round or the round afterwards we would’ve been knocked out. We deserved to be eliminated. We didn’t convince in any game. This was not the Germany we all know. It was pathetic.”
Reblog if you’d wear your favourite goalkeeper’s jersey with pride.
This is to prove a point.
I mentioned wanting a Buffon jersey, and my dad turned to me and went, “Why would you wear a goalkeeper jersey? Nobody cares about goalkeepers. It’s just stupid.”
I, myself, am a goalkeeper as well. And we don’t get enough appreciation, whether on lower levels, or professionally. If I made it professionally and someone wore my jersey, I’d be absolutely THRILLED.
I just don’t see why supporting your favourite player by wearing their jersey is any different when they’re goalkeepers.
UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who reblogged this and shared their opinion. I wound up getting a Buffon jersey for Christmas because my parents realized they were wrong and there’s nothing wrong with wearing a goalkeeper jersey, judging by everyone’s reaction to this. 😂❤
