“For me the best goalkeeper now in the Bundesliga is Gulacsi. When I was in Frankfurt, I never scored against him. Of course, I have to mention Neuer because it’s difficult playing against Bayern and we know on air he is strong”, he said.
Leipzig have already faced Bayern once this season and were hammered 1-4 at the Red Bull Arena. Silva started the match as his side’s lone front man but was later substituted. Robert Lewandowski, Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sane and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting were among Bayern’s scorers in that match. Meanwhile, Konrad Laimer found a way past Neuer in the second-half to score Leipzig’s solitary goal.
Bayern are currently on top of the table with a huge lead, followed by Borussia Dortmund in second-place.
Further explaining why Neuer and Gulacsi are better than other custodians in the Bundesliga, Silva explained, “What makes the difference between best keepers to the other keepers is I think for example in the air, they can keep the goal at zero or they don’t concede many chances in the air.”
“There are a lot of things that are different like playing with the ball at your feet, carrying out the cross. I think at the end its these together. But my assessment is Gulacsi and Neuer”, he further added.
Silva will next be in action on Saturday, when Leipzig face VFB Stuttgart in a Bundesliga fixture at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. Stuttgart are currently 15th in the standings, one spot away from the relegation zone.
