Barcelona's new Japanese winger Hiroki Abe spoke for the first time since completing his 1.1 million euros (1.25 million US dollars) move to the Spanish club.
Abe signed from Kashima Antlers of the J-League and will initially play for the reserve team, which plays in Spanish Segunda B third-tier league.
The 20-year-old Abe signed a four-year deal with a buyout clause of 40 million euros, which could rise to 100 million euros if the player is promoted to the first team.
The winger is tipped to be Japan's big football star at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
