Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen insists the club are trying to win every trophy available to them this season with focus on the Champions League.
The German goalkeeper reflected on his side’s inability to land success in Europe’s premier club since 2015 – his first season at the club following his move from Borussia Monchengladbach.
“We start every season with the aim of winning everything,” Ter Stegen told an interview with El Mundo Deportivo.
“Last year something happened to us that should not happen – as we lost in Rome – but this is something we should learn from, it happens in football.
“We have already shown against Paris Saint-Germain that we have the possibility of winning in every scenario, regardless of the situation.
“The Champions League is an extremely complicated competition that we have not succeeded in recently, but we look to win everything.
“Lionel Messi’s absence? Obviously he is a key player in our team and it will not be easy to replace him, but this is what we are working on now.
“I am very grateful to this club and the fans for supporting me at all times since I have joined, be it good or bad – I am very grateful.”
