Jérémy Mathieu made his first statements to Barça TV and fcbarcelona.cat as a Barça player just minutes after landing at El Prat Airport. The French player has just become Barça’s latest signing, following the agreement between València CF and FC Barcelona. On his arrival in the City, Mathieu confirmed that he was “very proud to come to Barcelona”.

The French defender, who can play in central defence or at left-back, will be presented as a Barça player on Thursday. “The Club know how I play and I’m just coming to do my very best”, he said on arrival in Barcelona. Also, he had great things to say about the Club: “Barça is the best Club in the World, and coming here is a great opportunity for me”.

This afternoon Jérémy Mathieu will pose for the traditional photo in front of the Barça crest at the Club offices, and this Thursday will have a very heavy day: he’ll undergo his medical tests, sign his contract, go onto the Camp Nou pitch, and will be presented at a press conference.
