Already speaking a perfect Spanish, the germano has conceded an interview to "MD" in which it has explained the to taste that feels in the club, as well as his challenges of face to 2017 and to the future, in general lines.

From the beginning, always it had clear that learn the language was key to adapt what before to the Barça. This yes, ensures that sometimes it has misunderstood him . "I give all what can of me to express me in Spanish and that can understand me but the people has to know that there are times that do not go out me the exact words and does not like me that they misunderstand or change the words".

"I expect that we win the maximum of parties and trace back to the Real Madrid"

To collective level, Ter Stegen does a very good assessment of 2016. "The year 2016 was a year with a lot of interesting things. Like team have kept growing. In the second part of the year, in this season, the parties have been a bit different because it has changed the form in which they defend us the rivals but we have learnt of the situation and are here in the second place and want to win our parties. With the 4-1 against the Espanyol have finish well this year in the League".

Ter Stegen, maximum concentration in the parties

Besides, always it has had very clear what wanted the Barça of him, already in the individual plane. "The goalkeepers that have gone through the Barça, especially Victor Valdés, have given the image of how has to be the goalkeeper of the Barça, and the club wanted to fichar a very good goalkeeper with the feet that understood the game of the Barça and flatters me that they chose me to me".

Ter Stegen Always tries to be concentrated to the maximum during the parties. "I am concentrated because I want always find the best solution to go out and also have learnt this year a lot of. The fact to play also the League does you learn new things that they are distinct when you play in Champions. Also there are a lot of parties more, by what have more rhythm and learn. That was the situation that I looked for since I arrived and now can say that it is like this. Whenever it arrives me the balloon look for a good solution and if the forward is near, as it is near".

Has a big relation with the preparador of goalkeepers, De la Fuente. "Dela Comments me everything, warns me of things that have happened and for me is very important. We work a lot together and he says me how sees the things and this gives me a second very important opinion. Besides, I speak with all the mates to see how have seen it and how can improve. In the Barça there is something very good that it is that all the world wants to improve always".

The Manchester City, a shadow that pursues him

It remembers how it was his relation with Claudio Bravo. "It was a very hard competition because each one wanted to play everything. At the end, as it has gone everything from the summer, the thing has changed and the two are well. He plays with the Manchester and I here in the Barça. It had to have a change because it was not easy to keep that situation".

"They remain me two years and half of agreement, there is not haste for renewing"

It recognises that the Manchester City of Guardiola wanted to ficharle. "I imagine that it would want a goalkeeper that play with the feet, all the world knows to Guardiola like person and like footballer and his idea of game is like this. It was clear that if it did not change the situation it was necessary to look for a solution but the club said me that it had arrived my moment and that all the world supported me, and therefore I did not doubt and remained me here".

And has clear that would love him be the goalkeeper of the next decade in the Barça, in addition to having some wishes for 2017. "That we can win the possible maximum of parties and at the end that we trace back to the Real Madrid". This yes, does not have haste for renewing. "We are in contact always, up to now have not spoken a lot remain me two years and half here, therefore there is not haste to renew".
