Barca Star On Facing Real Without Ronaldo

An FC Barcelona star has given his take on facing arch-rivals Real Madrid without their all-time record goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo.

After nine years at the Santiago Bernabeu, the Portugal international stunned the world last month when he decided to move to Serie A giants Juventus for a reported fee of €112 million (R1.74 billion).

However, Blaugrana goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has now stated that he and his teammates will not underestimate Madrid in the coming season, despite Ronaldo's exit from the club.

"I think they have an amazing team, like every year, just like us," the German said, according to FourFourTwo.

"It will be equally difficult to play against them, with or without Ronaldo.

"You have to understand that this is a player who made the difference in a lot of games, but we focus ourselves on our game, and we know that, if we are confident, we have the chance to do it all."

When asked about leadership duties at the Camp Nou in 2018/19, Ter Stegen said he would be honoured to be made one of the Catalan club's leaders for the upcoming campaign.

"It is something that the squad will decide, but it is an honour that my name is being talked about for the captaincy position," the Germany keeper added.

"It would be an honour to be one of the captains, of course, it would. However, for me, it is not the most important thing. We need more than four captains."
