Marc-André ter Stegen’s commitment to FC Barcelona is beyond doubt. The German goalkeeper’s showreel of star performances continues to grow as do examples of his dedication to all things Barça. In a recent interview he said “Barça is much more than football”, a sentiment backed up by his actions and his public pronouncements on social media.
One recent story exemplifies his attitude. The Barça U14B side recently claimed victory in a tournament in Ter Stegen’s home town of Mönchengladbach, Germany. The goalkeeper sent the team a message of support before the competition began but the best was still to come. Back in Barcelona, the German international paid a visit to an U14B training session to congratulate them personally for their achievement. The faces on the youngsters who form part of David Sánchez’ squad tells its own story.
