“I started off a little but inconsistently but I ended feeling confident and I think I had a good second half. Playing for Barça is the best thing you can do as a footballer and my debut could not have gone better. I will never forget it.” Those were the words from the B squad striker Jose Arnaiz after his debut for the FC Barcelona first team against Real Murcia in the Copa del Rey.

The 22 year old from Talavera de la Reina in the Castilla-La Mancha area of Spain not only impressed with his goal in the second half on 57 minutes, but also with other demonstrations of his quality which you can see in our video above! 

Jose Arnaiz is the man on everyone’s lips at the moment at Barça after his dream debut in the Spanish cup. The striker was signed from Valladolid in the summer and has a three year contract with an option for another two. His hope will be to follow in the footsteps as another Barça man from Castilla-La Mancha, Andrés Iniesta, and at the moment he is going the right way about it.
