Botia happy with first team debut

Asked about his debut with the first team, Barcelona Atlétic central defender and Spanish youth international Alberto Botía (20), who replaced Piqué in the 63th minute of the league game against Deportivo, told the club's official website that it was a great experience:

"I didn't expect it, it was emotional. When I came on, I had goosebumps. Playing with this squad, with these players is a joy for me. I want to thank my team-mates because they have been treating me very well and I felt like one of them. I especially want to thank my friend Abidal for his support (note: abidal had compared the playing style of botía with that of former barcelona player and french international laurent blanc)."

I think FC Barcelona shouldn't sell him. He is a decent sub and gives us more depth. I wasn't nervous when he was on the ball against Deportivo La Coruna. The youth players we should sell are:

Oier (Mino is the first choice Barca Atletic goalie), Abraham, Xavi Torres, Jeffren and maybe Pedro.

They will never be Barca stars and will get us some good money. We should also sell Milito and Caceres and bring back Henrique. That should bring around $40 000 000 and enough money to buy some good players.

i think anonymous is Madrid fan for wanting to sell our youth products for foreign exports. OUr treble winning starting eleven consisted of 7 playes for our youth system. Those 5 u want to sell could be 5/7

Pedro and Jeffren can be good. Xavi Torres can leave for the right price as we already have Busquets but everyone else should stay.

Pedro and Jeffren are good enough and can make it to become great players,don't know about Botia though,we have so many CBs
