The summer signing from Borussia Monchengladbach has also said that he likes to play "the Barcelona way".
"It's been nice to play. I like to play the Barcelona way - I hope it stays that way in the future," he told reporters at a press conference.
"This game for me was more about passing the ball than stopping it, but that's important for the game and I think we did a good job. It was the first match. It was fine."
Ter Stegen made 127 appearances for Gladbach before leaving for Barca this summer.
