The former Barca legend believes the Germany international could surpass Valdes as one of the best goalkeepers in the club.
player, Rivaldo, claims thatMarc-Andre ter Stegen
could become the best goalkeeper the club has ever seen while also admitting that he is capable of surpassing Victor Valdes. The 28-year-old, who joined Barca in 2014, soon established himself as the team’s No.1 with more than 250 appearances at his hand since his arrival.
“The German Marc-Andre ter Stegen was once again decisive for Barcelona in the [Supercopa de Espana] semi-final against Real Sociedad with some brilliant saves and two penalties stopped in the shoot-out.”
“It's tough to find any more adjectives to classify his qualities because he is not only a great keeper inside the goal, but also very solid with his feet which make him one of the best goalkeepers in the world at the moment.”
“Personally, I can't remember any better goalkeeper than him at Barcelona.”
“Even in my times there - and I played with some nice goalies - I have not seen better. Many argue that Victor Valdes was also very good, and I saw his first steps at the club. Despite his similar style, especially when Pep Guardiola was around, I still think the German is better.”
“Of course, we always tend to appreciate more the player currently active, and Valdes was actually a very solid keeper that won many titles with the club.”
During his time Rivaldo won six La Liga and three
titles while Ter Stegen won four league and one European title under his name.
