Few will remember, to these heights, the step of Malcom by the FC Barcelona. The Brazilian arrived to Catalonia with alone 19 years like one of the disclosures of Tie it 1 with the Burdeos in return of 41 million euros, but hardly was a season in the club. To four years of his exit, the extreme remembered in a press conference how produced his traspaso to the Russian Zenith in 2019, team in which it still remains.

"My go through the Barcelona was very fast, but learnt a lot. I chose to leave the club to have more minutes and play the Champions. The opportunities that had, took advantage of them", said the player of 26 years. Malcom is in Catalonia like one of the summoned by his selection for the friendly in front of Guinea, split to contest next Saturday in Cornellà-The Prat .

Malcom left clear that does not save grudge to the Barça

On his traspaso to the Zenith, the one of Sao Paulo affirmed that, contrary to the rumours, thinks that the group blaugrana treated him well. "The Barcelona was not unfair. They were options of the trainer, and it is necessary to respect them. I am happy in Zenith, in Russia", said the extreme. His traspaso closed in 40 'kilos', by which the Barça did not lose money with his signing. Something very rescatable considering the long list of bad businesses that the club concretised in that then.

On his return to the City Condal, Malcom admitted to feel very happy."It is one of the most beautiful cities of Europe. Be here with the selection is an honour. I want to take advantage of these days to learn a lot", expressed the international Brazilian. With the Barça, the extreme could win a League and a Supercopa of Rey.
