Thursday was a very busy day for Jérémy Mathieu, the latest addition to Luis Enrique’s Barça 2014/15 squad. He started his first day at the club with a medical test at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, and was shown around the facilities by his former Valencia team-mate Jordi Alba.

In the afternoon, the defender made his way to the Camp Nou, where he signed a contract binding him to FC Barcelona for the next four seasons. He then donned the number ‘24’ Barça shirt for the first time and went onto the pitch to be photographed by the media and a group of supporters. Then he gave his first press conference, followed by an interview with Barça TV and fcbarcelona.cat.

Our cameras were following Jérémy Mathieu throughout, and this nine-minute offers viewers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the new signing’s first day at the club.
