Barcelona keeper Ter Stegen: Setien changing our style

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen says coach Quique Setien is changing the way they play.

Ter Stegen was speaking after Saturday's 2-1 win over Getafe.

"On goal-kicks the centre backs sometimes start the play to avoid pressure from opponents from the first pass," said Ter Stegen.

"We're always looking for new ideas to be stronger and complicate things for the opposition. There are fans that aren't content with these back passes but I think they are necessary to start to build from deep, to be patient, more so against teams that press high up.

"It's a very good solution. Sometimes it goes wrong but you have to understand it."

On his stunning triple save, he added: "I don't know how I did it but it was difficult. I'm happy. There's a part of it that was luck too but I'm very happy, above all because of the result."
