The Barcelona defender Jordi Alba has said that he is extremely happy to be part of the Barcelona first-team after just arriving in the summer, while he has also said that it is easy to play with the team because they have so much quality. The Spanish defender was a € 14 million signing from Valencia in the summer. He has hugely strengthened the left-sided defensive position for the club, which has been a problem since the numerous injuries suffered by Eric Abidal. The 23-year-old has injected a lot of attacking intent to the team with his exceptional pace as well.

He has now turned his teammates for being able to help him settle quickly with the team, which has been made possible because of their quality. Barcelona are currently enjoying one of the best seasons in the la Liga after they remain undefeated until the halfway stage of the season. They have also drawn only one match so far this campaign, as they have seamlessly switched from the former manager Guardiola to the current manager Tito Vilanova. As a result of this extraordinary form, Barcelona already have a nine-point advantage in the table. The defender has already made 15 appearances for the club since making the move in the summer, while also scoring two goals.

“It is very easy to play here. There is so much quality. There is a desire to continue to win and a unity here. Both [Alex] Song and me, who are new, were made to feel like one of them from day one. There many who dream like you and there isn’t room for everyone, although for years there have been more possibilities,” said the 23-year-old. He also thanked the former Valencia manager Unai Emery for making him play in the wings, which has helped him progress a lot.
