Since his arrival to FC Barcelona last summer, Samuel Umtiti showed a constant level and was considered as one of the club’s best signings in the last period.

The French defender talked to the press about the friendly game between France and Spain and about his relationship with his teammates in Barcelona.

Umtiti told “Fourfourtwo” magazine: “Facing one of the strongest national teams in the world is more than just a friendly game. We know how great they are and we’ll prepare this game as we always do”.

Umtiti added: “Since my arrival to Barcelona, I’ve been watching Gerard Piqué. I focused on the things he does and on how he does them. I talked to him very often inside and outside the pitch. He’s like an idol to me”.
