Bayern Munich made light work of Borussia Dortmund at the Westfalenstadion yesterday afternoon, with the Bundesliga leaders maintaining their four-point lead at the top of the shop with a comfortable 0-3 victory – though the Dortmund fans still had their fun, pelting Bayern ‘keeper Manuel Neuer with bananas.

This of course isn’t the first time that Dortmund’s fans have given Neuer the banana treatment after showering him with scores of the things when the two sides met in Dortmund last season…

It’s thought that the Dortmund fans are trying to re-establish a tradition of yesteryear in which they routinely bombarded ex-Bayern ‘keeper Oliver ‘Ape Man’ Kahn with bananas in reference to him looking like a giant albino gorilla.

If Neuer’s smart and brings a ‘bag for life’ with him next time Bayern visit Dortmund, he’ll have his ‘5-a-day’ sorted for weeks and weeks.
