Raphinha: “Playing for Barcelona has been my dream since I was a child.”
“Playing for Barcelona is my dream, my family’s dream, my friends’ dream. Whoever saw me play when I was a child knows about my dreams, and playing for Barcelona is the fulfilment of that child’s dream.”
“I will help Barca return to glory.”
“I don’t like to lose. When I lose, it’s hard to accept it. I will fight to win every game and every fight to get the best out of me.”
“Ronaldinho and Neymar? I hope to do half of what they did here.”
“It is an honour for me to play for Barcelona. I saw everything that Ronaldinho did at Barcelona.”
The Brazilian winger can’t wait to get started under the management of Xavi Hernandez.
