Marc-André Ter Stegen was the best Barça player against Borussia de Dortmund . After the draw, the Barca goalkeeper was happy for his performance and for having denied Reus in the penalty kick. He believes he has made a statement after his strong performance against Borussia Dortmund last night.
Ter Stegen clashed with Manuel Neuer over the National Team’s No. 1 spot. Neuer came out and said Ter Stegen should accept his role as a deputy to him. After saving the penalty of Marco Reus, Stegen came out and said that his performance in front of the goal clearly demonstrated his ability.
Ter Stegen said: “People know what I am capable of. I always have trust in myself, and my performances, and today was a chance to prove that.We played well tonight, but we need to improve in certain areas. A point is probably a fair result.”
As for the game, Ter Stegen acknowledged that Dortmund was superior. “I think they have had very clear chances, we were not well organized. The opponent has done very well and it is difficult to avoid this chances with his quality. I am happy that in the end we get a point here” said the goalkeeper.
Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen was, without doubt, the best player in his side’s goalless draw against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday. The German international made a string of fine saves in the game to ensure Barça kept a clean sheet, including stopping Marco Reus’ penalty. The Barça No.1 didn’t feel he was extra motivated because he was playing back in Germany amid the debate over who should be the country’s stopper: him or Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer.
Earlier Marc-Andre ter Stegen said he wants to end the controversy over who is Germany No 1 between him and Manuel Neuer, the Bayern Munich goalkeeper.
“I want to end this controversy. Whoever isn’t playing wants to play and that’s normal. I have expectations, that’s clear, and in the last few years you can see how i’ve performed,” said the Barcelona stopper before his team play Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday in the return of the Champions League.
Ter Stegen says Barcelona are out to win it after the errors in Rome and at Anfield.
“It’s not about forgetting, but learning from things, where we slipped up. We’re convinced that’s what we’re doing, we have to be 100 per cent from the start.”
