The Catalan club's new signing Lucas Digne has revealed that he was a big fan of Brazilian fullback Roberto Carlos in his early years.

Digne also touched on the pressures of playing for the La Liga champions, adding that the Blaugrana will do their best to win the UEFA Champions League.

"Barcelona are the biggest club in the world. We have to give everything to win the Champions League," he continued.

"It's a very difficult competition, the most complicated in the world. We have a great team and we'll give it our all.

"Barcelona are the point of reference in football. For La Masia, the club, the way of playing. Barca is football."
