Jérémy Mathieu was present this Thursday as a new FC Barcelona player in front of the media. The new Barça player, who will wear the number 24, explained that joining the team is an important step in his career. “I think I’m currently playing the best football of my career. I am very proud, I have worked very hard to come here,” he explained. He added: “I’m a versatile player, but I feel more comfortable as a center back, I’ve come here to play as a center back.”
I know that there’s a lot of quality at Barça and we all have to be united in order to be successful
The Frenchman, who started his career as a left back, was reconverted to a center back after he joined Valencia. “It was Valverde who taught me how to play this position and little by little I became more comfortable,” he said. We went on to note that “the most important thing is to give it my all, give the club I’m playing for 100%. I will try to do the best job possible.”

“I know that there’s a lot of quality at Barça and we all have to be united in order to be successful. I like how the team plays and I hope that I can show my abilities,” said Mathieu, who added that it’s a true pleasure “to play for Barça, I’m very proud and happy to be here.”
I don’t really know the city, but I’ve been told a lot about the Club. I will be comfortable and happy here
In addition, when asked about Carles Puyol, Mathieu said: “Puyol was a great player, I hope to achieve similar success. I will give it my all, and I will fight.”

Finally, he confessed that he doesn’t know the city very well, but he’s confident that he will adapt well to his new team: “I don’t really know the city, but I’ve been told a lot about the Club. I will be comfortable and happy here.”
