Speaking with npfl.ng, Bassey said that life in Spain is totally awesome as he is starting to adapt very quickly to the environment,
“Life and football are totally different at Barcelona. I’m working very hard to quickly adapt because it is different. Already, there is that language barrier and all, so working hard is key to settling down very fast at the club. I have been welcomed and seen as a brother and a member of the Barcelona family since I joined them,” Bassey revealed
The former Akwa United player added: “Playing for Barcelona is a great privilege I’ll cherish for years to come. I’ll be playing soon, I’m actually back in the country to sort out issues regarding my work permit. I’ll resume immediately I’m done which should be in a few days. I can’t wait to play my first official game,”
“It’s been a great start for me. I’ve had the privilege to train with some of the best players in world football. Yes, we’ve had a combined training of Team A and B, we do that twice a week. I’m already inspired and will work very hard to play with these very best players,” said Bassey.
