Giovani: “I will work to make the most of my chances”


One of the stars of the game with Beijing Guoan was youngster Giovani Dos Santos. The Barça player opened the scoring with a magnificent goal.

After the game with Beijing Guoan, Giovani Dos Santos spoke about his experiences of playing under Frank Rijkaard. The Mexican wants to work hard to win a first team place. Andrés Iniesta has noticed what a useful acquisition Touré Yaya was, while Oier Olazábal described his first taste of first team football.

Giovani Dos Santos:

“I was very comfortable on the pitch. My colleagues helped me a lot and I have to keep working like that.”
“I am very motivated. I am at the best club in Europe and it is a dream come true to play for the first team. I will work very hard to make the most of my chances and help the team get some wins this season.”
“I have always compared myself to Messi but he is a football superstar and I am just starting. Of course I’d like to be like him one day.”
“Ronaldinho has always been my hero, he is a world superstar. I hope to learn a lot from him this season, and one day be as good as he is.”

Andrés Iniesta:

“The weather is nothing like it was there. It wears you out a lot more, but it’s good because adverse conditions help with preparation.”
“I was sad to swap 24 for 8 because it’s the number I first had in the first team and I have won important titles wearing it. I hope the number 8 brings me as much luck as 24 did.”
“In big teams there are always foreigners, big stars. I don’t see it as pressure, but motivation to keep growing as a player.”

Oier Olázabal:

“My debut was incredible. Juan Carlos Unzúe told me about it at midday”.
“They first said I would be going to the camp and on tour but that I was not going to get to play.”
Giovani: “I will work to make the most of my chances”
