Ter Stegen still on the move

Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen will still be leaving the club in the summer, even though a potential move to Barcelona could fall through, according to the player and his agent.

"I have received FIFA's decision, but that doesn't influence the situation with Marc," said the player's agent Gerd vom Bruch to the Bild newspaper. "We're quite relaxed about it all. Marc will still be moving in the summer."

Alves sticks up for Neymar after criticism

Barcelona defender Dani Alves has defended his team-mate and compatriot Neymar, claiming the forward has only been criticised in recent weeks following allegations over his controversial summer transfer from Santos.

I think the criticism only started when the details about his contract emerged, before that everyone was happy with him," Alves told a press conference.

We should not judge him on how much he cost, but on how well he is playing.

For me now he is playing as well as he was at the start of the season. You expect that there will always be a period of adaptation when a player arrives in a new country, but he has been playing well.

The club paid so much for him because he is worth it. People have paid more money for players that haven't been worth it.
