The Germany international took to social media to offer his best wishes to his team-mate and also thank him for the memories.
6 years - Many great memories! Still very grateful for your help especially when I joined Barça in terms of language, mentality and culture - I’ll never forget this! Now I look forward to playing against you Brate Wish you and your family only the best. Un abrazo fuerte amigo! pic.twitter.com/88MTwhFDZQ— Marc ter Stegen (@mterstegen1) September 2, 2020
Rakitic was at Barcelona today for a farewell ceremony and to say his goodbyes to the players who are currently taking part in pre-season training.
Ter Stegen is currently recovering from knee sugery which means he’ll miss the start of the new season, and he is not expected to return to action until November.
