Barcelona are the “ideal” club for Francisco Trincao who will enjoy playing with Lionel Messi at the Camp Nou, according to one of the youngster’s former coaches.

Hélio Souza, who coached Trincao with the Portugal Under-19 side, knows the 20-year-old well and has been talking about his imminent arrival at the Camp Nou.

“Trincao is Trincao. He has the conditions to adapt to Barça football. Barça is ideal for him to develop his talent. And with the cracks that will be at his side, they will help him grow.

“Barça have a very particular idea and have extremely high-quality players like Messi. Players like these are ideal for young people. They will enjoy each other very much.”

Souza also spoke about Trincao’s “great personality” and “exceptional mental strength,” and also praised his ability to play on either flank and drive inside.
