Ter Stegen ‘doesn’t understand fans’

Marc-Andre ter Stegen admits “I don’t understand the fans” after they whistled his Barcelona teammates during Sunday’s 2-1 win against Leganes.

A tense atmosphere was found Camp Nou, where Barca needed a last-gasp Lionel Messi penalty to beat the La Liga debutants – less than a week after the Catalans’ 4-0 hammering by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

“The match was very complicated in the end,” the goalkeeper said after the game.

“I’m more than happy for our goal at the end because what counts is the victory. There are always things to improve on, but this is normal in football.

“You have to think about resting and then having a good game next week.

“It’s been a very difficult week for everyone without a doubt, and the most important thing is that we were able to win today. It gives us a bit of confidence and we’ll need it next week.

“Whistles? I don’t understand the fans because everyone tried to do their best and I think the most important thing is that they support us.

“The 4-0 defeat was tough and we need the fans, especially at home. We win and lose together, but we have to be united.”
