Ter Stegen decided to cut short his 2020/21 season with Barcelona no longer in the title race and focus on getting himself fit for next season.

That means 29-year-old will no longer be available for selection by Joachin Low for the upcoming European Championship as he prepares for a surgery on his knee.

He posted on his social media handle: “I’m disappointed about yesterday’s defeat and that now we can no longer win La Liga. After a complicated start to the season, we showed good character going 19 matches unbeaten — but we weren’t able to keep this form.

“I have decided together with the medical team of the club that I will do a complementary intervention on my knee. I’m sad that I will miss the EURO 2020 this summer with Germany.

“For the first time in many years I will be a fan at home supporting my country, I hope we win it!

“After the summer break, when we are back on the pitch I hope to be able to play with fans once again, I miss it!

“Thank you for your support throughout ab difficult season and stay healthy!”

Germany already have Manuel Neur who has always been their no.1 still fit with options in Arsenal’s Bernd Leno and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Kevin Trapp.
