National Keeper Marc-André Ter Stegen has put together his dream elf on the social media channels of the DFB. The 29-year-old consciously limited to players with whom he has already played together. Nevertheless, surprises do not lack.

Especially about the system he had “long thought” and ultimately decided against his personal preferences for a 4-4-2, “because the best people have fitted,” opened ter webs.

In the gate, Ter Stegen is on Janis Blaswich, with which he played together at Borussia Mönchengladbach at the beginning of his career. With the 30-year-old, who changes from the Dutch first division of Heracles Almelo to RB Leipzig in the coming summer, which is also “good friendly” today.

The domestic defense form Gerard Piqué from its current employer FC Barcelona and Antonio Rüdiger, who knows Ter Stegen from the DFB team. According to the goalkeeper “a serious decision”, which could also be a finger tie. Rüdiger can leave the FC Chelsea free transfer after the season and is being stubbornly traded at FC Bayern and Barca. Ter Stegen’s election may also be a message towards the defender.

In front of the duo in the defense center, Ter Stegen turns Jordi Alba, Links Dani Alves. Both are currently lacing the shoes for the FC Barcelona. Alves is still “one of the best players”, with whom he even stood together on the lawn.

Ex-BVB coach on the side line

There is also great praise for the midfield around the Barca legends Sergio Busquets, Xavi and Iniesta. “The measure of all things” is, however, iniesta, so tier, who classes the small Spaniard with a smile slightly above its current coach Xavi.

Before the trio, Frenkie de Jong dreams the next current star of the Catalans. Although the Dutchman is “no ten”, ter webs now urge him into this position. “I believe that he can do a lot in this area,” says the native Mönchengladbacher.

The fact that his hitherto for eight years at FC Barcelona also characterize his dream elf is obvious. The more surprising that Tier’s stoves in the offensive waived the largest legend of the club: Lionel Messi does not appear.

Instead, Ter Stegen puts on BVB captain Marco Reus, whom he knows best from his Gladbacher’s time and the DFB team, and Mario Götze. His dream elf does not need a nine, but dissolve the situations “footballery”, so ter sts.

There is also a surprise on the coach bank. The former Barca coach Luis Enrique and ex-BVB coach Lucien Favre, who once helped Ter Stegen in Gladbach to his debut, must say Ter Stegen to someone who acts as a number one and who acts as a wizard.
