Barcelona players delighted Thiago penned new contract

Barcelona teammates are delighted with Thiago Alcantara's new contract. Xavi celebrated the renewal of 20 year-old Thiago, who has signed a new contract to remain at the Nou Camp until 2015.

"Thiago has renewed and that's great news," he said.

"He is a fantastic player with a lot of talent - the competitiveness of the group is great."

Xavi began last season with a niggling injury, but says he is feeling good ahead of the next campaign.

"I feel good physically, I'm very motivated and content," he said. "Last year I suffered some tendonitis in the Achilles tendon but I'm over that.

"I'll try to start off as best I can and at the highest level."
