Jean-Clair Todibo still can't believe he's a Barcelona player

Jean-Clair Todibo is still pinching himself about being a Barcelona player.

The French defender was signed in January from Toulouse.

Todibo recalled: "My transfer to Barca? I say to myself: 'It's too much, it's incredible, it's really going too fast'.

"When we say that football is going fast ... this sentence made sense. When I think back to three years ago, I was in Lilac. I was training alone with my big brother and I then found myself training with Leo Messi, (Luis) Suarez, Gerard Pique. It's huge.

"If I had thought three years ago that three years later I would be at Barça, I think I would not have believed."
