Marc-Andre ter Stegan has begun a journey at the Camp Nou, that, if looking at his predecessor is any indication, could be extraordinarily successful.
The keeper has just signed for Barcelona and will have plenty of time to get used to his new surroundings – he hasn’t even been included in Germany’s World Cup squad!
Of course, Victor Valdes rarely wears his country’s jersey and didn’t even receive his senior debut until after he’d won two Champions League medals!
Valdes had to suffer for his success and was regularly made a scapegoat by fans until they learned to appreciate his integral role in the team. Yesterday, ter Stegan could be seen wearing the Barcelona jersey for the first time, he’ll have big gloves to fill.
