During the US tour, Malcom gave a personal interview to the Club’s media. He spoke about his childhood, his beginnings as a football player, his arrival in Europe with Bordeaux and what it means for him to sign for FC Barcelona.
"When I was little I spent the day playing football on the street with my friends, morning until night. I signed with Corinthians at 10 years of age and started training three times a week so saw my friends less. But it meant that I got to be a professional at 16. I lost part of my childhood but when I have holidays I will always see my friends.
"For me my family is the most important, everything I do is for them. They did a lot for me so I try to help them as they helped me.
“Football was very important to me. I learned to play well and have good technique.
"Celebrating goals? I always thank God, I pat my heart to dedicate it to my family and I make an L for my partner, who always accompanies me in good and bad times."
"I knew Bordeaux was a great choice for me when I came to Europe. I had other offers but I chose Bordeaux to start from scratch. And now I have managed to come to the best team in the world, FC Barcelona.
"Bordeaux is a very quiet city, I've spent great moments there. Europe is very different as in Sao Paulo it was very dangerous to go down the street.”
"Barça for me is more a club. I feel privileged to be here. I want to win titles and be an idol like the great Brazilians who have been here.
"All players dream of playing with Barça. I didn’t imagine it would be so soon, but I knew I could fulfil my dream of playing here.
"In video games I always played as Barça, and I always wanted to play here because I love the style of play, I want to be part of it. I'm very happy and now I want to work hard to win a lot of titles and make history. I want to play with Messi, the best player in the world."
