The Barcelona-born player grew up at Junior Club 1917 in Sant Cugat del Vallès and later also defended the Southampton jersey in the youth category. The new grana addition will add speed to both sides of the attack. Pochettino is a quick player with a great ability to reach the baseline, therefore he will add skill and imbalance to coach Raül Agné’s scheme.”
