Ter Stegen: Barca Are Better Without Neymar
The sale of Neymar was perceived to have come at a bad time for the club.
However, Valverde has led the club to 24 unbeaten league games.
Ter Stegen is quite glad the loss of Neymar did not affect the quality of the squad.
“The quality of Ney, you can’t explain it,” Ter Stegen told ESPN . “Because he was super important for us, as a person [and] in the team, as a footballer.
“Now, everyone needs to understand what he did because maybe he wants to win something else, also personally.
“His decision only he knows but in the end we had to compensate all this and this is not easy because he had so much quality, but we did it in a different way and now we have a very, very strong team.
“I think we’ve got some new players who have made us even stronger and hopefully they feel good and comfortable in the team and they adapt very fast.”
