It is not known for sure what it can still give on the lawn, but what is certain is that Daniel Alves is still filling the scene. His return to Barça aroused madness among the fans. Up to 10,378 spectators witnessed the signing of the Brazilian’s contract until June 2022 and surrendered to the champion amid shouts of “Alves, Alves”, seconded by Joan Laporta, who embraced him euphorically and gave him a mini-walk through the Camp Nou grandstand, hugging the former player from Sevilla, PSG, Juventus or Sao Paulo.
It is not easy to understand what expectations a 38-year-old footballer can generate, but the charm of Daniel, without a doubt, is his glorious past at Barça, where he exceeded a hundred assists and was a devastating footballer in the band that this Wednesday he stepped on again . First, in flip-flops (“the essence doesn’t change and I put them back on like the first day”). And then with the boots and the number eight.
Perhaps not even Alves expected this last trip with Barça, so he has got on the train with an inordinate illusion. Enjoy every second of the moment. “The last time I grabbed the bus here, I said I didn’t know how long this dream would last. Well, this dream said it wasn’t over and here I am, at the club that has made me feel so special. Visit Barça, visit Catalunya and visca the mother who gave birth to them all. This club is wonderful. “
