As a team we are working very well defensively and that is the objective, to maintain that stability”, points out the German.
“We are working hard so that the opponent does not have that facility to finish off or to score goals,” he adds, in an interview that will be broadcast during the preview of the match at the Cívitas Metropolitano. On the other hand, Ter Stegen will assess the adaptation of striker Robert Lewandowski
“It is not necessary to explain much to him either. I have done what he could do. Because of the language, he is trying to integrate a lot and that helps him and all his teammates. We knew what we were going to sign and this is what he does, even better than we could have imagined”, he explains about the Pole.
