The German joined the club from Borussia Mönchengladbach eight seasons ago, and after first vying with Claudio Bravo for the place between the Barça sticks, he eventually made the position his own and has gone on to become one of the greatest goalies ever to represent the Catalan giants.
In total he has played 302 games:
La Liga: 200 Champions League: 71 Copa del Rey: 24 Spanish Super Cup: 6 European Super Cup: 1
He is currently fourth in the list of Germans with the most games in La Liga, although he is just 15 short of Uli Stielike (215). Bernd Schuster still leads the way with 316 games.
He has won 14 major titles with the club, including four Ligas, five Copas del Rey and one Champions League.
Just the other day his amazing last-minute save against Mallorca meant Barça were able to hold on for three absolutely essential points.
But perhaps Ter Stegen’s most memorable performance of all was in the 3-2 victory at the Santiago Bernabéu in the 2016/17 season, when he made an incredible 12 saves, including some absolute marvels that are well worth admiring once again.
Liderados por Messi en la parcela ofensiva y Ter Stegen en el apartado defensivo, el Barça pudo acabar sumando los tres puntos gracias a un gol del '10' argentino en el último minuto de partido. La icónica celebración del gol decisivo ha quedado como una de las imágenes emblemáticas de la historia del Club.
