FC Barcelona’s newest signing was unveiled on Thursday evening and the striker is eagerly awaiting the chance to play with the best player in history.
Martin Braithwaite completed a move to the Camp Nou on Thursday after the club were granted permission to make an emergency outside of the transfer window.
The Denmark international reveals he is looking forward to playing alongside six-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi after signing a four-and-a-half year deal.
“He is surely the best player in history, so it is a great honour to have the opportunity to play with him,” Braithwaite said, as per Marca.
“It’s a great moment for me and I can always say that I played with him.
“I am very excited, it is a dream come true for me. Everyone who plays football dreams of playing for Barça and here I am.
“I want to win many titles. In Barça there is a lot of pressure and many expectations set. I hope to win as much as possible.
“I am a technical player, I am also physical, fast and strong and I would say that my best feature is that I am intelligent. I try to move around the field and study the game.
“I am a football student and I always try to improve my game. Of course I am a scorer and I hope to score many goals.”
