Barcelona defender Jules Kounde has talked up Mikayil Faye and admits he’s been impressed by the summer signing.
Faye arrived on a four-year deal from Croatian side NK Kustosija Zagreb and joined up with Rafa Marquez’s Barcelona Atletic.
He made a bright start to life with the reserve side and has been described as a “football monster” and a “future star” by one of his old coaches.
Kounde has now joined in with the praise and thinks the youngster has a bright future ahead of him.
“I had the opportunity to get to know him a lot in the preseason and to see him a little recently as well. I think he has a lot of talent. He is very, very explosive, very dynamic, very aggressive, very good with the ball, he has a good left foot,” he said.
“He recently arrived in a new country with a new language and I think he is doing very well, I have heard him speak a little Spanish already. I see someone who wants to work and I think he has a bright future ahead.”

Faye is still just 19 but will be hoping he can get some opportunities to impress in the first team before the end of the season.
