Ahead of Paris Saint-Germain’s Tuesday Champions League clash at Barcelona, the Brazilian midfielder insists his team-mates are ready to put their 6-1 defeat to the Blaugrana in 2017 behind them.
Speaking to Le Parisien, the La Masia graduate said:
“What club would not have suffered after the Remontada? We have this opportunity to respond, play a great match and get this thorn out of our foot.
“I can tell you that we all want to get on the pitch and win this game.”
The 28-year-old midfielder went on to praise his former club, asked what they gave him in his life, he replied:
“Everything. They gave me everything. I learned almost everything at their training centre. I remember that time in my life fondly.
“I grew up in Barcelona, I lived there for 13 years and I feel Catalan.
“I learned about being a footballer with Barca but also about being a person in this city. For me, Barca will always be special.”
