FC Barcelona’s new ’18′, Jordi Alba, was presented in the Barça kit to the press and more than 10,000 fans at the Camp Nou on Thursday.
The player posed for photos, spent a few moments with the ball, and thanked the fans with a short speech: “Thanks to all for being here on a special day for me. I am very happy to return to my home.”
Assorted images from Jordi Alba’s first official day as a blaugrana can be found after the jump.
