Manuel Neuer sympathises with Marc-André ter Stegen. “I feel a little sorry and I know that something like this is not easy for a goalkeeper.”
Manuel Neuer has admitted he feels sorry for countryman Marc-André ter Stegen after Bayern Munich pummelled eight goals past Barcelona in a Champions League rout.
Ter Stegen was unable to stop the Bayern Munich onslaught as the relentless German placed themselves firmly as the favourites to win the competition with an 8-2 win over the Spaniards.
Neuer did not have a great deal to do at the other end of the pitch, and admitted he felt for his compatriot, but insisted that Friday night’s result does not have an impact on the national team.
‘I feel a little sorry for Marc. I know that something like this is not easy for a goalkeeper,’ Neuer told Sky channel. ‘But we were playing the Champions League and this has nothing to do with the national team.’
