Ex-Everton loanee Gerard Deulofeu unveiled as Barcelona player once again along with Rafinha [Video]
Gerard Deulofeu and Rafinha, both loaned out to Everton and Celta Vigo respectively last season, were yesterday presented as Barcelona first team members for the 2014/15 season.
Both have been first team squad members previously, but as part of protocol, the club have decided to give them the ‘Welcome Home’ treatment.
The pair wore the new shirts for next season, and went out onto the Camp Nou pitch to do some tricks for the cameras (it wasn’t a public event, hence the empty stadium).
Deulofeu, who had a thrillingly positive loan at Everton last year, has two Barcelona first team appearances to his name, while Rafinha (Thiago Alcantara’s brother), has yet to make his first team debut.
Having played under Luis Enrique at Celta last season, all bodes well for Rafinha’s integration this coming season.
