Claudio Bravo arrived in Barcelona on Sunday and appeared for the traditional picture with the club crest outside the offices. But he also found time to say a few words to Barça TV and www.fcbarcelona.com. “After what I experienced at the World Cup in Brazil, to then come to Barça is an incredible feeling and makes me very happy” said the Chilean keeper.

He has joined FCB from Real Sociedad, and says that “I will take magnificent memories away from that club. They brought me to Europe and opened the doors for me to come to Barça. That’s the reward for all my work … I am truly looking forward to contributing to and helping the team. I am very ambitious and have high expectations about the good things I can achieve here”.

Asked about the competition he’ll face from Ter Stegen and Masip, he said that “such competitiveness can only be a good thing as long as it’s for the good of the team.” He also commented that “I’m very motivated about replacing Víctor Valdés and Pinto, they set high standards for this club.”
