He was given a start on the right flank and he brought instant joy to Barcelona fans on America’s east coast. Compared in parts to Ronaldinho’s arrival, to bring rebirth under Laporta like the legend did back in the day, the Brazilian was in fine fettle.

Within 25 minutes aof his debut he had his first goal, volleying home Alejandro Balde’s cross, after setting up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the opener.

The former Leeds winger then set up Ansu Fati for Barcelona’s third goal, before coming off at half-time with all the other starters, his team 3-0 up.
