Barca Youth Product Comments On First League Goal

After a sublime pass from Lionel Messi, one of FC Barcelona's youth products scored in LaLiga for the first time on the weekend. He has since spoken about opening his league account and what it is like to play alongside the Argentine.

Messi Responds To Pique's Goal Claim

Since Pep Guardiola's exit from Barca in 2012, few La Masia graduates have made an impact in the club's first team.

Midfielder Carles Alena came off the bench against Villarreal in LaLiga on Sunday night, and found the back of the net in Barca's 2-0 win after he was played in behind by a clever ball from Messi.

Alena was understandably delighted to get off the mark for the Catalan club, saying things are always simpler with the 31-year-old Argentine. 

"Thanks to my teammates, everything went well, but the win was the most important thing against an opponent that made things difficult," he said, according to Sport.

"Everything is easier with Messi, only he can see that pass. He puts the ball where he wants.

"Then, with the one on one, I was really happy to score at Camp Nou. It's a dream come true." 

The 20-year-old also made it clear he is desperate to continue in this vein.

"I have to take advantage of the chances I get, like in the Copa the other day and then again today," he added.

"It's about doing well and giving the coach a headache when it comes to picking the team. I know I am doing well and now I have to make the most of the opportunities which come my way."

Alena has made 10 senior appearances for Barca so far, scoring two goals along the way.
