Barcelona and Germany keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has hit back at Manuel Neuer’s criticism at his earlier statement.
The German team captain was unhappy with Ter Stegen voicing his frustration over not starting for his country and maintained that the goalkeepers must stick together as a unit.
The Barcelona custodian has hit back at Neuer, claiming that players without playing time are bound to be frustrated. He also defended himself, suggesting he has always behaved like a professional and his captain’s comments were uncalled for.
“Of course, I have something to say about that. You can’t call for competition and expect the players who don’t play to be happy about it”, he said during the press conference ahead of Barcelona’s Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund.
“No one has to say anything about my feelings, that’s my personal opinion. If you look at the last few years, how I have conducted myself, then such statements are inappropriate.”
