Marc-André ter Stegen is a professional football player playing for Borussia Mönchengladbach as a goalkeeper. He joined the team of Borussia Monchengladbach youth system at the tender age of 4. He was known as a potential star of the future at a very young age, and by 2010, he had even represented the club at every youth level. Moreover, he was also seen on the first team substitutes beach, when any of the first team goalkeeper used to get injured. But, he had to wait till 2011 to make his first official appearance for this club.

In the first half of the 2010-11 season, Marc-Andre established himself as the star of the team of Borussia Monchengladbach reserve team. He enjoyed a relatively successful season, along with his first team colleagues.

Marc-Andre has a unique style of goalkeeping, similar to his childhood hero, Oliver Kahn. He likes to organise his defence to a cohesive unit, and like Oliver, he has been known to react angrily when they fail to do so. He is also brave when coming out for one on one, claiming crosses. This does sometimes backfires, as he once lost two front teeth in a collision with Uwe Kamps, the goalkeeping coach.
