Marc-Andre Ter Stegen Has His Say On The Top Five Goalkeepers In The World

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen Has His Say On The Top Five Goalkeepers In The World

Barcelona and Germany goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has revealed who he deems to be the top five goalkeepers in world football.

The former Borussia Monchengladbach man gave his thoughts when asked the question in the press conference ahead of the Champions League quarter final second leg tie with Roma, where Barca lead 4-1 from the first game.

Modestly not grouping himself in the mix, Ter Stegen picked Allisson, his opposite number for tonight's game, Ederson, David De Gea his compatriot Manuel Neuer and the legendary Gianluigi Buffon.

However, he did say that he could not order the five because of the different styles of goalkeeping they possess.

It's hard to disagree with the 25-year old's choices, though it is a tad surprising that Jan Oblak, Keylor Navas and Thibaut Courtois aren't in the conversation.

Later in the presser, Ter Stegen spoke of his last visit to the Stadio Olimpico, where he conceded a worldie long-range strike from Alessandro Florenzi.

He did say that while the goal maybe made him a little stronger, it hasn't had much of an effect on his game.

"I haven't changed since that goal," he said via Goal.

"These things are rare. Maybe the goal made me a bit stronger because of what was said about me but it certainly didn't change my game.

"Maybe I am a little more cautious of shots from the halfway line... but it's part of life, part of football."
