Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre TerStegen has managed to win the treble in his first season had the Spanish club. His list of trophies won this campaign includes the Champions League along with the la Liga title.
He has been impressive in goal and has been able to keep his position in the team ahead of Claudio Bravo. The 32-year-old goalkeeper came on the back of an impressive campaign with Chile at the World Cup 2014, but he has been unable to break into the first-team due to the impressive performances fromTerStegen. They have certainly not gone unnoticed, as Germany manager Joachim Loew stated that he is impressed.
Despite a stunning campaign, it remains to be seen ifTerStegen will be able to break into the national team during the presence of Manuel Neuer. The 23-year-old has been given a glimmer of hope with the recent wobbles shown by the Bayern Munich star.TerStegen continues to remain in the under 21 squad and it may not be long before he is called up for the senior team. Germany have an impressive line-up of goalkeepers at the moment and their situation has been compared to that of Spain, who had Iker Casillas, Victor Valdes, and Pepe Reina all fighting for a first-team spot during the peak.
“I am, of course, especially happy for Marc-Andre terStegen. He has been rewarded with this title for all his perseverance and his consistently good performances,” said Loew.”It is simply awesome to have won the title. We played outstanding football and the team deserved it.It`s not been an easy year for me, but it`s not about the individual, it`s about the team,” said TerStegen. Most of the appearances made byTerStegen came in the Champions League with Claudio Bravo being the league goalkeeper.
