Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has revealed his favorite legends: one goalkeeper, one defender, one midfielder, one forward. He did so in a video posted by FC Barcelona, in which he explained his reasoning in Spanish.

His picks? For goalkeeper, Oliver Kahn. Defender: Carles Puyol. Midfielder: Xavi. Forward; Pele.

Kahn was Germany’s #1 for a long time and was surely an inspiration for Ter Stegen growing up. Puyol and Xavi need no introduction to Barcelona fans, and Ter Stegen had the fortune of playing with the latter for one season.

Pele, of course, is many people’s choice for best player ever.
