I repeat that the final score in my first major tournament is very special. Xavi put me in a ‘movie’, took advantage of the run; I was alone with Buffon and managed to beat him. Xavi’s assist was enormous.

Jordi is a spectacular footballer, he’s a 10. In addition, he’s a local (player), raised as a Blaugrana, competitive, aggressive, very good defensively and his game looks great. I’ve seen him play a lot and I know that he is ready.

I learned the philosophy of football: quick play, think before you receive (the ball), the technical concepts… I learned everything.

Jordi Alba, on what he has learned in Barca.

I’m very happy to go home

Pending…

Unless there would be an announcement soon, it is now widely reported that Jordi Alba is close in joining Barca this upcoming season. According to AS, Barca will pay 13 million Euros + variables, depending on what would be agreed with Valencia. 

If this pushes through, la benvinguts, Jordi!
