Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer sustained a season ending injury back in December, which prompted the Bavarians to get Yann Sommer from Borussia Mönchengladbach. For the German national football team, Marc-André ter Stegen is in line to be the first choice keeper.

“At the moment, Manu is injured. I wish him a speedy recovery and to quickly get back to full fitness. Until then a lot of things will change,” the FC Barcelona goalkeeper said.

Ter Stegen has enjoyed a nice run of form that saw his Barca team top of La Liga, ahead of Real Madrid. He vows to give his best for Hansi Flick’s team and showcase the best version of himself. “I think I’ve been performing well in the past few years and I’m ready to take the next step in the national team,” the 30-year-old. “Of course, my aim is to be #1, at Barça and in the national team. I’ll do everything to show my best performance and help the team.”
