Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti Says He’s Ready To “Win, Win and Win”.

Barcelona’s new boy Samuel Umtiti says the club’s objective is the same as his, adding that he’s ready – “to win, win and win” with the best team in the world. He was officially unveiled as a Cule on Friday.

Umtiti is the second French defender after Lucas Digne to join Barca this summer.

The France international footballer who played his heart out in Euro 2016 finals against Portugal, was formerly a Lyon player. His Barcelona contract is valued at €25m.

There’s no footballer in the world as happy as Umtiti, after he realized the prospects of playing alongside Suarez, Messi, Neymar and the rest of Barca team.

The 22-year-old said: “I know that there are some very good players in my position. I know what awaits me, but I’ve set my objectives very high. I’m a competitor and I want to play.

“I prefer to keep [my objectives] to myself. At the end of the season, I’ll be able to take stock, but the people who know me well know what they are. Now I have to work and then we’ll see.

“I’m proud to have fulfilled a dream. There are great players at the club and I’m eager to play with them.”

“It’ll be a special moment to see all these stars I’ve only seen on TV [in person].

“I hope to adapt as quickly as possible to show that I want to be part of this family.

“I’ve come to develop and learn a lot from my colleagues who have more experience than me. I’ll work hard to show that I have the qualities to help the club,

“I’m a player who likes to play out of the back with the ball.

“Barca’s objective is the same as mine – to win, win and win. I fit into this mentality because I’ve liked the club since I was a child.

“[Luis Enrique] has told me that he’s happy to have me. We can talk more calmly when we start training.

“Now I must show good things at Barca to be recalled [by France]. If I do well with Barca, I’ll certainly have more chances to play for France.”
