Fulfilling a childhood dream
Several La Masia graduates have been making their debuts for FC Barcelona this season and the latest was Ilaix Moriba, who played his first LaLiga Santander minutes for the Blaugrana in their 5-1 win over Alavés. For the 18-year-old, this meant playing alongside his childhood idol Lionel Messi. After the game, Moriba shared a ‘How it started, How it’s going’ post on social media, with one photo of himself as a young fan posing with Messi and another of him celebrating a goal with the Argentine legend.
