Barcelona defender Yerry Mina thrilled to win Catalan Super Cup

Barcelona defender Yerry Mina was delighted with his penalty in their shootout win against Espanyol in the Catalan Super Cup.

The Colombian centre-back explained afterwards that he promised his family he would make the most of his first goal in Spain.

"I always try to be happy, to show the happiness I have inside and to transmit it to those around me," he said after the match.

"I am happy on a personal level and also because the team played a great match.

"I had already said to my family that I was going to enjoy my first goal."

Asked how he has found his first few weeks in Catalonia, Mina didn't shy away from any questions.

"I know I've come to a huge club and I'm working to be at my best for when I'm chosen," he said.

"I don't consider myself the fourth-choice centre-back of this team, but what I need to do is to wait for my opportunity."
