Angel Alarcon has been talking about life in the first team at Barcelona after being part of the senior squad at times this season under Xavi.

The 18-year-old made his debut in January against Cueta in the Copa del Rey and has spoken about the two players at Barca that have surprised him the most.

“Yes, two: Busquets and Dembélé. They are great,” he said.

“When you see them on TV you hallucinate, especially when you’re little, but when you train with them you say: ‘My goodness!”

Alarcon also talked about what is was like to be called up to the first team for the first time.

“When I went to train with them, while they were at the World Cup in Qatar, I did the same thing I do with Juvenil A,” he added.

“Xavi is giving me the opportunity and I make the most of it.

“I remember my first conversation with him. It was after a training session in which I scored a lot of goals (laughs). He told me to continue like this.”

Alarcon is currently with the Spain Under-19s side and scored in the win over Luxembourg last time out. Next up for La Rojita is a clash against Ukraine on Tuesday.
