Barcelona welcome Thomas Vermaelen to the club by posting video highlights from his career

Barcelona welcomed new signing Thomas Vermaelen to the club by posting a video montage of his qualities as a player.

The Belgian defender signed a five year contract with the club after completing his £15 million transfer from Arsenal.

Does the video glorify the ability of Vermaelen? We know the player was absent for much of last season and the campaign before that was riddled with errors.

Or does it remind us of what he’s capable of when he’s in form? The montage mainly features his prowess in the air, as well as his knack for scoring goals and, quite important at Barca, how comfortable he is on the ball.

You can watch the video above.
