"I hope from the beginning of the season we can start winning and make our way to winning the titles.

"It's time for Barça to get back on track and I'm here to help Barça to be on the top and win titles.

"I was speaking to Xavi and I knew from the beginning that his ideas are going in a good way, hence it was easy for me to come to Barça as I know that.

"Xavi knows how to coach Barça as he was an amazing player for the club. He has an amazing future as a coach and I want to be a part of it.

"We have many good players with amazing quality and with this team we can achieve a lot this season."
