Sergio Aguero thoroughly enjoyed making his Barcelona debut on Sunday after finally making his first competitive appearance for the club since his move from Manchester City.

The Argentine had to wait until the 88th minute to get on the pitch but was blown away by the reaction of fans who offered a warm Camp Nou welcome.

“Well that was incredible, people calling my name, singing my name. I liked the song and it would be nice to get used to that,” he said.

“I want to thank them on the pitch for that affection. I can’t hug everyone individually but I hope they enjoy my play on the pitch.”

Aguero also posted a message on social media after the game to thank fans for their support. He wrote, “Happy for the victory and for having the first minutes with this shirt. Thank you all for your support And we go for more!!

The return of Aguero is another boost for Barcelona who also got to see Ansu Fati make his first start of the season against Valencia. Aguero will be hoping for more minutes on Wednesday when Barca return to action in the Champions League against Dynamo Kiev.
