It’s no secret that Barcelona are enjoying a brilliant season and goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has been crucial to the club’s success.
But it’s not just with his clean sheets and brilliant saves where the goalkeeper is excelling, it’s also with the ball at his feet.

The goalkeeper has played back-up to sweeper keeper Manuel Neuer for Germany and his ability on the ball allows Barca to start move from the back.
Goalkeepers need to be almost as good with their feet as their hands in today’s game and Ter Stegen is certainly one of the best in the business.
