Joao Cancelo pledges to do whatever Xavi wants

Joao Cancelo, currently on loan at Barcelona, is eager for a new beginning and has expressed his readiness to adhere to any instructions given by coach Xavi. He shared his aspirations after joining the club.

The Portuguese full-back made the temporary switch from Manchester City in the summer transfer window and has spoken of his desire to “achieve great things” at his “dream club”.

“The coach gives me a little freedom and I like that. I feel comfortable playing inside but also out wide. I will adapt to everything he asks of me,” he told Sport.

He added: “I always want to play with the Barca shirt and show the fans and the people who believed in me how difficult it was to get to Barca. I want to achieve great things with this club because it’s where I’ve always dreamed of being. It’s a dream club, all my friends know it; all my idols played for Barca.”

Cancelo’s position within the Manchester City squad was compromised last season due to alleged conflicts with coach Pep Guardiola. In January, Barcelona sought to secure him on loan, but City reportedly prevented the move.

Instead, he was loaned to Bayern Munich. However, Bayern chose not to exercise their option to purchase him permanently, leading to his falling out of favour at the club.

Now, the Portuguese international is looking forward to making his home debut for Barcelona as they prepare to face Real Betis this Saturday.
