Furthermore, the blaugrana keeper highlights the fact that he also feels at home out on the field with Barça: "The football we play here is that one I want to play and for that reason we are very happy about the contract extension."
Marc ter Stegen also mentioned the attitude and results of the team: "We always want to win but we have to be aware that many things have changed and we have to be patient with the team until everyone finds their place." Finally, he also touched on the pandemic and the lack of fans in the stadium for matches: "We have to take notice of the restrictions in each country. We want fans in the stadium but the most important thing is our health and we want the situation to get better so we can all live like we did before."
