Marc-Andre Ter Stegen Got Into An Argument With 'Ball Boy' During Copa Del Rey Loss

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen Got Into An Argument With 'Ball Boy' During Copa Del Rey Loss

Marc-Andre ter Stegen was involved in a pretty intense argument with Sevilla's 'ball boy' as Barcelona lost to their rivals in the Copa del Rey last week.


The Spanish Cup is Barcelona's best chance of winning silverware in Ronald Koeman's first season as manager but they stuttered in the first leg of the semi final last week.

Jules Kounde's magnificent goal opened the scoring in Seville before Ivan Rakitic put the knife in against his former side late in the game.


During the match though Barca keeper Ter Stegen was more annoyed with the noise coming from behind his goal, more than what was going on on the pitch.

The German ended up in a heated debate with the mature 'ball boy' sat behind him, leading to the referee needing to intervene as the players went off at half time.

Ter Stegen started the interaction telling the man sat in the stands, "Stop talking. Show some respect. You are not here to talk. You are here to do your job."


According to Marca, the ball boy responded ironically, saying, "I will stop because you say so," following it up by explaining, "I am not talking, I've only asked for a yellow card. I am not going to shut up."

Referee Mateu Lahoz then intervened telling the man, "Please do me a favour. When the ball goes there [to the stands], that's when you get into the game to send the ball back.

"That's your job, ok?"

That was him told!


Of course that was the end of the half so Ter Stegen was to stand in front of someone else in the second half and it's unlikely the first 'ball boy' was chirping off with Yassine Bounou stood in front of him.

Aside from the Copa del Rey loss, which they still have time to recover from, Barca's form has improved in recent weeks.

The Catalan giants brought up their seventh La Liga win in-a-row on the weekend when they thrashed Alaves 5-1.


Lionel Messi was in excellent form, which will please everyone at the club as they prepare for their Champions League last 16 match against PSG on Tuesday.
