Barcelona signed the Dane as an emergecy striker in January.

And he has so far played just 39 minutes fpr his new club.

Barcelona forward Martin Braithwaite has opened up on life at the club and how he is fitting in. After the Catalan giants suffered an injury crisis with Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez being ruled out for a lengthy period of time after undergoing surgery, they swooped for Braithwaite from Leganes last month as a solution.

“I didn’t tell anyone about Barca’s interest until my move was 100% secured. I was training with Leganes and suddenly I was in all the newspapers,” he told Mundo Deportivo. “Suddenly, I was catching a flight to Barcelona! That was very exciting, especially for my wife. And then, after signing, we had a press conference. My wife and children were sitting in front. It was really special.”

“I’m here to stay for many years. I have arrived in a wonderful moment. It’s the perfect moment. There could not be a better time for me to join. I feel good, I don’t need time to understand my teammates. The feeling is simple, I try to watch them and when I am not training, I watch videos at home to understand them better, but it is easy for me to understand them, it is natural.

“I watch videos of how they play, of the different players, how they pass the ball, how positions are exchanged and so I can adapt my game to them. We also talk in the field, you have little time on the pitch, but the connection is fast.”
