Barcelona goalkeeper Ter Stegen confirms knee surgery: No Euros

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen is out of Germany's Euros squad.

Ter Stegen's season is over after it was agreed for him to undergo knee surgery on Thursday. The keeper had been nursing the injury through the season.

He posted to social media today: “I'm disappointed by yesterday's loss (against Celta Vigo) and because now we can't win La Liga anymore. After a difficult start to the season, we showed good character by going undefeated 19 games, but we couldn't keep up this form.

"I have decided together with the club's medical team that I will do a complementary intervention on my knee. It saddens me to miss 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 holidays, when we are back on the field I hope to be able to play with the fans again, I miss it!

"Thank you for your support through a difficult season and stay healthy!"
