Mikayil Faye has been talking about his love for Barcelona after signing for the club from Croatian side NK Kustosija Zagreb.
The teenager says he’s always been a Barcelona fan and is living the dream by signing for the Catalan giants.
“I am very happy because I have fulfilled my childhood dream. I always dreamed of playing for Barça. I had photos in my room, on my bed,” he said.
“Since I was a child I always dreamed of playing in Spain, especially for Barça. I’ll give everything on the pitch and off it because the club has trusted me. It’s a dream to play for a club as big as Barça.”
Faye also spoke about his role models and said that Javier Mascherano was one of his favorite players growing up.
“I play as a central defender. I like to play in the middle because it is my preferred position. I followed many players like Araujo, Piqué, Mascherano,” he added.
“I always looked at Barça when I played. My idol was Mascherano, because he was a tough guy. He was strong, mentally strong.”
