Joao Cancelo is one of Barcelona’s most impressive signatures this season. The Portuguese defender landed at the Nou Camp on loan from Man City, with a buyout clause.
Cancelo did not take much time to adapt to the new shirt. The 29-year-old defender quickly became a key link in Xavi Hernandez’s squad. Sharing with the press, Cancelo revealed that he has been a Barcelona fan since childhood.
SPORT quoted Cancelo’s statement: “I grew up and witnessed the best team play. That was Barcelona in 2009. There are many idols in my heart who played for this team.”
“My greatest idol has always been Ronaldinho Gaucho. He is the player I like to watch play the most on television. Ronaldinho amazed me with his innate talentmagical plays on the field”.
“Ronaldinho makes Bernabeu fans applaud despite the rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona. There is something that makes Ronaldinho different from the rest.”
Barcelona ranked 4th in La Liga after 1/2 of this season. The unconvincing achievements of Xavi Hernandez and his students.
