Barcelona Fans Were Very Impressed With Yerry Mina's La Liga Debut

Making your first start for one of the world's best clubs could easily be a terrifying moment in your career, especially when you have to do it without an experienced partner next to you. But Yerry Mina took it in his stride on Sunday.

With clubs spending so much on transfers these days there's even more eyes on new signings and more pressure on them to live up to the money spent, that puts a lot of pressure on a new player.

Philippe Coutinho stole the headlines when he finally made his move from Liverpool to Barcelona at the beginning of January, having spent the whole of last summer trying but failing to make the move.

Because the Brazilian's move was so high profile 23 year-old centre back Yerry Mina was able to make his £10.5 million move from South America to Barcelona rather under the radar.

On Sunday the Colombian made his La Liga debut against Getafe and with no Gerard Pique or Samuel Umtiti available he was paired with left back Lucas Digne in central defence and fans were very impressed with him after a 0-0 draw:


Pretty decent for a first start!

After the match Mina, who was signed from Brazilian side Palmeiras, was clearly happy with his first start, saying, "Staring the first game at the Camp Nou? Being at this club, you can't describe it. It gives me a feeling of an indescribable happiness."

It sound like he could have a very long and successful time at the Camp Nou.
