Dani Alves’ emotional speech to Barcelona team-mates as shirt number unveiled | Football | Sport
“I have been out and this is the best place to do great things – to live. You are here – let them value it because outside there is nothing better.
“It is a pleasure to be here with you. We are going to do great things because this club is made of this – of doing great things.”
Alves was handed the number eight shirt on his return to the club. Eight was the lowest squad number available after midfielder Miralem Pjanic freed it up when he joined Besiktas on loan in September.
Alves has already begun training with his new side but will not be able to play any matches until January as he is not registered.
