Barcelona defender Oscar Mingueza was lucky enough to have his Barca debut this week. The centre-back was a key part of the Barca defensive package that kept a clean sheet and clean record in the Champions League thus far.

Mingueza chatted about how happy he was after the match. Always fun to hear players discuss the delight of playing for Barca, a nice change from the cynicism of everyday club news.

“I am really, really happy after so many years and everything that I have suffered to play here. It’s a dream to debut in the Champions League for the best club in the world.”

“I spent all week wondering if I would play or not and when I found out I was so happy.

“I was a little nervous and I thought of my family, my girlfriend and the people that know what I have suffered and the work behind reaching this point.”
