Nelson Semedo delighted with winning Barcelona debut: Messi must stay!

Nelson Semedo was delighted to make a winning debut for Barcelona in victory over Real Betis.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde started Semedo in his defence and was rewarded with an assured performance from the Portugal international.

Afterwards, Semedo declared: "Yes, I am very happy for my debut in the Spanish championship and for my debut at the Camp Nou, but I am still much happier for the victory of the team.

"I have found myself well. My colleagues have helped me a lot in this respect and that was noticed on the field."

Semedo was also asked about the rumours around Manchester City moving for Lionel Messi.

"I want to continue playing with Leo here," he replied.
