United States international goalkeeper Zack Steffen says he is “very happy” at Manchester City although he has had only two displays for the Blues as back-up to Ederson.
During the summer of 2019, the 25-year-old was grabbed by Pep Guardiola and loaned out to Fortuna Dusseldorf promptly.
Being in Germany, he was relegated out of the Bundesliga. However, he appeared on a European stage and established a place as No.1 for his nation.
That place has been held back in Gregg Berhalter’s plans. He is satisfied with his present situation, telling the Associated Press: “I’m really happy with where I´m at right now.
“I want to be on the field, but I’ll keep working hard and keep pushing those guys in front of me and they´ll keep pushing me.”
Suffering from a knee injury during his time in Dusseldorf, he said about his progress over the course of 2020: “I feel like coming from Germany, being out so long right now, City is giving me a lot of confidence to go back out on the field.
“And each day the keeper coach, the keepers, the players are pushing me to get better, and I feel like I’m in that process, and I’m feeling good and feeling better each and every day, each and every week.
“Right now I’m trusting the process. I’m getting these games in with the Carabao Cup and I'm just trying to learn from the guys in training, from my staff, and then hopefully coming into these camps and getting games here. And, yeah, the rest will work itself out as long as I work hard.”
