Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has revealed that he is not fighting with Manuel Neuer and claims that they have professional and good relationship.
Recently Ter Stegen has expressed frustration over his status at the national team, however, it has been revealed that the Barcelona goalkeeper will get a chance to start against Argentina on Wednesday.
“It’s an opportunity for everyone and that’s true for me as well,” said Ter Stegen.
“This is a competitive sport. Everyone wants to play and that’s the case for every position, not just the goalkeeper. There are no discussions, no disputes or any moments where we tell each other, ‘Now we absolutely need to talk!’.
“We talk every day and have a good and professional relationship. He has an advantage, I have to perform the best way possible, prove myself and make that decision as hard as possible.”
“The head coach has made his decision so it’s up to me to perform well for both club and country,” continued Ter Stegen.
“I will give everything to become the number one. That is my personal goal. But that is not related to other people.
“The big goal overall is a successful tournament [Euro 2020] for the team.”
