Marc-Andre ter Stegen hints at Barca exit: '25 games are not enough for me'

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has hinted he may be forced to consider changing clubs if his number of appearances doesn't increase with the Blaugrana soon.

The German international has shared goalkeeping duties with Claudio Bravo since signing with the club from Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer of 2014.

The 23-year-old has primarily been used in the club's UEFA Champions League and Copa del Rey campaigns, while the Chilean Bravo plays in La Liga matches.

Though Ter Stegen was on the field for Barca's Champions League and Copa del Rey triumphs last season, he expressed his concern with the lack of opportunities overall.

"I want to take the next step and to play more. So the situation is clear: If nothing changes, we have to talk," Ter Stegen told TZ on Friday.

"In football, sometimes things go very quickly.

"At the end of the season I'll have played about 25 games. This is not a little, but when I return from the national team, I'll probably be back on the bench in La Liga, for the Clasico against Real Madrid [on April 2].

"In the long run, these 25 games per season are not enough for me.

"The decision is made by the coach. I hope that the quality I've shown recently is rewarded."
