Barcelona keeper praises De Gea

16 Apr 2019, 07:00

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen is relishing the chance to play against David de Gea again as they prepare to host a "hungry" Manchester United side in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

LaLiga leaders Barca hold the advantage heading into Tuesday's contest after beating Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side 1-0 at Old Trafford thanks to a Luke Shaw own goal.

De Gea put in a typically impressive performance in that defeat, however, and Ter Stegen, who has kept four clean sheets in his last five Barca appearances, believes the Spaniard is among the world's best at the position.

"He's one of the best goalkeepers right now," Ter Stegen told a news conference. "He's having a good season and he's been great for many years, which is important to be successful. I think he's one of the most important players of Manchester United.

Compete

"It's always nice to play against [someone like him]. You compete at the highest level and that's what we all want. Tomorrow will be tough for him and for me.

"I think we have the same objectives, keeping a clean sheet first of all, but we're going to make it hard for them."

Ter Stegen has enjoyed another fine season at Barca, though the Germany international is more interested in team success than any individual accolades that may be on offer.
