Barcelona youngster Riqui Puig wants to continue growing at Barcelona and stay at the club for a long time.
The 19-year-old started in his team’s 0-0 draw against Huesca on Saturday and put in a promising performance.
Puig was happy with the opportunity and is hopeful of many more chances to come in the future. “I only want to stay here,” he said after the game, according to Marca.
“It’s my team, it’s my parents’ team and I’ve been here since I was a child. If it’s up to me, I’ll stay.
“I think I have to play more with Barcelona B and take advantage of chances whenever I get one.”
He has featured for Barca in the Copa del Rey regularly, but the midfielder was particularly delighted when he had a chance to represent the club in a La Liga fixture.
“La Liga Santander is much more special than the Copa del Rey,” he admitted.
“Few youth players have the chance to play in the league. I’m happy and it’s a very special day for me.”
