Andoni Zubizarreta: 'Marc-Andre ter Stegen faces difficult task'

Andoni Zubizarreta believes that Marc-Andre ter Stegen arrives at Barcelona with a "very difficult task" ahead of him.

Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has claimed that Marc-Andre ter Stegen faces a difficult task to settle in at the club.

Ter Stegen's move from Borussia Monchengladbach was confirmed earlier this week, and Zubizarreta believes that the 22-year-old must immediately set a target of improving in his first season.

"Ter Stegen has a very difficult task, but it is an exciting one," Zubizarreta told reporters.

"It is one of the great challenges but we think he is capable of dealing with that and doing well.

"He is very fast, agile and very decisive. He's also very good in the air and one-on-ones. There is still room for improvement but we've all got time to improve."

Ter Stegen arrives with the club preparing to watch both Victor Valdes and Jose Manuel Pinto leave this summer.
