Barça sign “230-year-old” defender in potentially disastrous deal

“FourFourTwo’s Spanish football expert Tim Stannard assesses Barcelona’s big summer signing… And there you have it. A fine lesson in being very careful what you wish for. Barcelona had not signed a centre-back for five years, but the Catalan club went and ended that dry spell on Wednesday by bringing in Valencia international Jeremy Mathieu. Of course, La Liga Loca is being a tad literal with the term ‘international’. The ginger stopper has turned out twice for his country, probably back in the last century, so old is the doddery Mathieu.” FourFourTwo
