His stats

Formed at La Masia, he’s played in every age bracket in Barça’s youth system. His first match for Barça B was in the 2009/10 season, against Valencia, when Luis Enrique was the manager. During the 2012/13 season he was named to the first team as the back-up keeper under Tito Vilanova (Valdés was suspended for a game).

With Barça B he played a total of 77 matches over four seasons. He’s won 32 games, tied 20 and lost 24.

The keeper is known for his agility and excellent reflexes. He’s intuitive, quick, and talented with his feet. Even though he’s not a keeper that’s known for his height, he’s very adept at covering areal play. He’s a crucial player for Eusebio Sacristán’s Barça B team.
