“Since I was a boy I’ve carried Barça in my heart”


FC Barcelona’s new signing, Brazilian striker Keirrison de Souza, arrived in Barcelona on Thursday evening and immediately spoke about his love for the Club: “Since I was a boy I’ve carried Barça in my heart”.

Despite being born thousands of kilometres away from Barcelona, Keirrison assured Barça TV and www.fcbarcelona.cat that he has always felt a special affection for FC Barcelona: “I’ve always followed Barça and the great Brazilian footballers who have played here. Since I was a boy I’ve carried Barça in my heart and at the age of 20 I have the pleasure of playing at this great club”.

Over the next five years I hope to play some great football and give my all for Barça”.

Plenty of time ahead

Keirrison joins Barça at just 20 years old and is eager to win a place in Guardiola’s team despite his youth: “I’m lucky enough to join Barça at a very young age. I have time to show what I can do and help Barça win titles. I hope to earn a place in the team just like the other Brazilian forwards that played for Barça”.
