Alex Collado thrilled to make Barcelona debut

Alex Collado was thrilled to make his Barcelona debut in defeat at Celta Vigo.

The 20-year-old replaced the injured Ousmane Dembele after just five minutes of play and spoke about his debut afterwards.

"I was more nervous in the warm-up," he said.

"Ernesto Valverde is a fantastic coach, he knows how to manage the dressing room and that's not easy.

"He always tells me to play like I do in the B team."
