Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has taken responsibility for the goal that led to his side's shock home defeat at the hands of Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday afternoon.

The hosts missed a string of chances before the 62nd minute where Neuer charged out his goal, but failed to claim the ball from Igor de Camargo, whose header trickled into the net, a blow that Bayern were unable to recover from, eventually losing the game 1-0.

Neuer is already an unpopular figure among factions of the Allianz Arena crowd, and speaking to Bild, the Germany 'keeper admitted that the latest mistake was his fault: "It went wrong, we did not take our chances. And then my mistake led to the goal. I look stupid."

Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes defended the under-fire custodian, saying: "Manuel had stomach flu before the game, perhaps that is one reason why his concentration levels dropped."

The Bavarians were heavily criticised for a series of defensive errors last season, leading to the investment of €18 million on Neuer and €5.5m on Genoa's Brazilian full-back Rafinha, as well as the addition of Jerome Boateng from Manchester City.
