Ter Stegen has been recovered from injury
Marc André ter Stegen has fully recovered from his injury and has taken back his No.1 role at Barcelona. The German has served a recent international break in a mutual agreement with Joachim Low to return to full fitness and is now eager to go to for his club side again. A big challenge awaits the German in the form of Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday, but being the calm figure that he is, especially with the ball at his feet, the fixture will spoil him. His ability with both feet as well as his hands made him the starting point of Barcelona’s attacking moves, and nothing delights the former Monchengladbach star more than seeing a goal scored on the back of one of his passes.
Jose Ramon and Marc are making a good team
“When I look back at the past seasons, how many goals have been scored from the back, it makes me very happy,” he told reporters. “I see that I can bring solutions to the team. And that’s what I want to do by helping the team, giving others the freedom to move and making it harder for an opponent to put pressure us. We all want to reach our full potential and always improve. And that’s what I’ve tried every year, and there is always something you can do better”. The German was also asked about his relationship with Barcelona goalkeeping coach Jose Ramon de la Fuente. “We make a good team and we analyzed the things in which he believed I could improve, and we made changes,” he said. “We are honest in the analytical part so that it can be better every time.
Ter Stegen is now expected not only to keep clean sheets on the pitch but off it as well, having become a father last December. “I think being a parent is exhausting. But at the same time, it is delightful when you can spend time with your children. I am very proud when he hugs me; for example, it is wonderful. It drives me crazy, completely.” he said.
