Juan Pablo Sorín, who played for FC Barcelona from January to July 2003, visited the Ciutat Esportiva on Monday and also spoke to Barça TV and www.fcbarcelona.cat about Barça’s “spectacular start to the league. It was a lesson in football. The first half will go down in history.”

Sorín was also able to provide some details on his compatriot Tata Martino, who he says “has football in his blood. He has the same philosophy as Barça”. The Argentinian ended by commenting that he has no doubts about Neymar’s ability to adapt to the FCB method.
