Bayern Munich chief Rummenigge: Ter Stegen not at Neuer level

Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has enjoyed a dig at Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

The two teams meet this week in the Champions League quarterfinals.

And Rummenigge insists Bayern boast the superior goalkeeper.

Ter Stegen has been sensational for the Blaugrana in the last two seasons, but he finds it difficult to have his performances recognised in his home country because of the presence of Manuel Neuer.

"Germany is fortunate to have this pair of goalkeepers, although Neuer is truly world-class and Ter Stegen is still on his way to that level," Rummenigge explained.
