Father of Ilaix Moriba: I hope he never leaves Barcelona

The father of Ilaix Moriba says their priority is to sign a new deal with Barcelona.

Ilaix has made a first team breakthrough this season under coach Ronald Koeman.

Father, Mamady, told Sport: "With this dynamic, thanks to Koeman, I am 100 percent thinking of Barça. Why leave? At that age, taking the risk of going to another team when you have a coach that takes a chance on a kid from La Masia in a tough game like the Sevilla one... You have to appreciate that. Hardly anyone does it.

"I hope Ilaix never leaves and can be an example for the next generation at La Masia. I want kids who have doubts about staying to see Ilaix and choose to stay. It happened with Messi, Iniesta, Busquets, Xavi, etc.I hope he can always stay at Barça."
