The news of Brazilain Legend and former Bracelona Defender coming back to his old stumping ground certainly took many people by surprise when it was first reported late last year, due to his age and several obvious reasons like the manner in which he left the Catalan Giants in the first place, but he is certainly proving his doubters wrong with his performances.

Note worthily, since his departure, Barcelona have tried but failed to sign someone in the mould of the Brazilian over the years, with a certain Portuguese Nelson Semedo and utility man and fans favourite Sergi Roberto alternating in that position, but neither of them were able to perform to the heights reached by the former Sevilla Man during his spell in catalonia.

Honestly, he was certainly a joy to watch Daniel Alves roll back the years with his sublime assist for Jordi Alba and scoring again for Barcelona on Sunday against Atletico Madrid. The Brazilian obviously brings a lot to the table with his vast experience, while his Mature head and perfect reading of the round leather game will surely be missed during their Europa League Campaign.
