The Frenchman seems confident that he will adjust here and that he can play as a centre back
On this second part of the interview, Mathieu says he feels confident he will quickly adjust to the team. This confidence comes from the years he has spent in Valencia that he considers the best of his life, and that gives him the boost he needs to adjust. He also comments that, since he will be surrounded by great players, he will learn and improve, and that he is proud the club has trusted him.
Obviously, Jérémy is aware of the fact that he is there to fill the hole left by Carles Puyol, something he knows is a difficult task, but he wants to prove that counting on him has been a good decision.
He also told us about Jordi Alba, his former teammate at Valencia and the person who will surely help him during his first days at the club, since they keep a good relationship. He couldn’t miss to mention Eric Abidal, fellow countryman and a role model in Barça and to himself when it comes to achieving great things with this club.
