Tonight United come fact-to-face with a keeper they have, according to newspaper reports, been linked with on more than one occasion, the young German Manuel Neuer.

Neuer, resident between the posts for Schalke 04, has expressed a desire to stay in Germany in the immediate future.

If Unite dare to overcome their German opponents they`ll somehow have to get past the highly rated keeper with Wayne Rooney possibly being the player to do that.

Rooney has bad memories of the stadium, the Veltins Arena, the fixture tonight will take place in with it being the very place he received a red card in after stamping on Ricardo Carvalho in a game that will always be remembered for that wink from Cristiano Ronaldo, almost an acknowledgement that Portugal had conned Wayne into losing his rag.

Returning to Neuer though, the German stopper has, ahead of the game pointed out that he has a 100% record, albeit one game, when facing Rooney, remarking,

“I`ve already played against Rooney once and it ended positively for Germany. I hope it will be similar against Manchester United.”

Hopefully, those two incidents – the red card and the loss to Germany, may very well help to inspire Rooney tonight, let`s all hope they do!
