Bayern Munich ultras have agreed to stop abusing new signing Manuel Neuer as long as he behaves as they wish him to.

Bundesliga - Munich fans in Neuer truce

The goalkeeper has received a hostile reception since arriving from Schalke last month, but has held a meeting with representatives of the supporters groups - and it seems the air has been cleared.

The groups issued a combined statement following the meeting which read: "On Tuesday evening there was a meeting between Manuel Neuer and groups from the South Stand, which have taken part in demonstrations against the transfer of Neuer.

"We made him aware of how he has to behave in front of our stand. As for our opinion about him, which you can read in our previous statements, nothing has changed.

"If Manuel Neuer agrees to the rules we laid down regarding his conduct and keeps a respectful distance, there will be no further organised protests and actions."

The hostilities towards Neuer seem to have begun when he mocked legendary Bayern Munich and Germany goalkeeper Oliver Kahn a few years ago.
