Martin Braithwaite: There is an incredible team spirit at Barcelona
The Dane is enjoying life at the club even if his role is mainly off the bench
Martin Braithwaite, who scored the winner in the 3-0 Copa del Rey comeback against Sevilla, is one of the players helping unite Ronald Koeman's team.
A true professional, the Dane has accepted his role as a backup player and gives his all every time he plays. Respected by the dressing room for his positive attitude and his focus, the former Leganes forward has spoken to Danish media BT about the unity inside the Barça dressing room.
"We have a fantastic team spirit," he explained. "A dressing room with problems wouldn't be able capable of these comebacks. We're all together and we feel super good as a team."
Asked about Messi, he added: "When you know him, when you're close to him, you can see that he's just one more (player in the squad). He's relaxed, calm and completely down to earth and normal. He likes to have fun and only thinks about playing football because it's what he loves doing."
Braithwaite's playing an important role. He's always one of the players Koeman turns to in the second half, which has allowed him to grow and to help the team. The last time he didn't come on was on Nov. 4, against Dynamo Kyiv. Since then, four months and, when available (he missed two games with an injury), he's always had minutes.
