Yerry Mina talks on scoring for Barcelona
Injury concerns for Gerard Pique and Vermaelen, as well as a suspension for Umtiti, handed Yerry Mina his first Camp Nou debut.
He was paired with Lucas Digne as they kept a cleansheet in a 0-0 draw with Getafe.
The Colombian looked like the most likely player to score for Barcelona as he got on the end of some crosses.
Speaking after the match, he admitted he felt he could get a goal on his first start for the team.
“I had a lot of faith that I was going to score, but unfortunately it didn’t happen,” he explained afterwards.
“I knew I would get a chance and I had to take it.”
The center-back was very happy about the reception he has received from the Barcelona fans.
“To be at a club like this one makes me indescribably happy.”
“I am delighted with the fans”
“There are no nerves after this result.
“We are calm because we know there is a lot of the season left.”
“We know the team we have and we are going to work hard.”
