Watch: What Yerry Mina Did During Camp Nou Presentation Is Pure Class

I got goosebumps when Messi approached me with Suarez in the dressing room.

Hot-on-the-heels of having signed Philippe Coutinho, from Liverpool, for a fee of £142 million, the club announced the signing of the Colombian centre-back Yerry Mina.

Mina who joined the league leaders on a five-and-a-half-year contract for an €11.8million deal from Palmeiras on Thursday could not hide the excitement of the eventuality of playing alongside one of the best footballer ever.

As he stepped out of that Camp Nou tunnel, posing for the pictures followed and soon after that, the Colombia global stunned everyone by taking off his boots and socks before stepping on the turf for the very first time.

As the 23-year-old emerged from the tunnel, he waved and applauded the faithfuls then right before stepping onto the turf he did something very classy.

She said she wished Court was at the Australian Open this year so they could have an open discussion about the issue. Asked if Court's name should be removed - as is being widely debated - she said, "It's [their] decision, I believe".

He explained: "There's a saying in my country: 'Touch the ground you want to conquer with the sole of your feet'. I've always dreamed of it", said Mina.

Do you think Mina will be a success at Barca?

"I'm calm. I came to work, to contribute, to be with the best".

"Firstly, I just want to learn a lot from the best players in the world", he added. With the work that we will all do, I will fight to be at the World Cup.
