Xavi, the coach of FC Barcelona, ​​made very complimentary remarks about one of his players.

FC Barcelona coach Xavi says Marc-Andre ter Stegen is one of the club’s greatest goalkeepers.

The German goalkeeper is fit to challenge Real Mallorca this Friday. In a pre-match press conference, Xavi sought to pay tribute to him. “With (Victor) Valdés, he is the best goalkeeper in the history of Barça. He is captain, leader, nobility, personality, audacity. A captain in capital letters.”

Xavi forgets a Barça legend

Strong words which may perhaps not please Andoni Zubizarreta, the former Blaugrana goalkeeper who spent 8 years in the first team cage.

Note that Ter Stegen was absent this season for almost three months due to a back injury. Without him, Barça struggled a lot. His return to competition, which dates from February 10, coincides with the start of the team’s recovery.

Xavi also commented on Vitor Roque’s situation: “Often it’s a question of competition. It’s not easy, he had minutes, opportunities… If he impresses, he will participate and play, like everyone else. »
