Barcelona’s latest addition, Inigo Martinez has claimed that his new team is superior to Real Madrid.
Martinez, 32, has officially joined the Blaugrana, signing his inaugural contract at the Joan Gamper Sports City.
He was asked several questions during his unveiling and one of the questions was on the hot topic of the historic club rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Unsurprisingly, Martinez was loyal to his new employers and did not hesitate to express his belief that Barcelona are the more formidable of the two La Liga giants.
The veteran centre-back stated “Barca better than Madrid? Needless to say, yes. The team proved that last year.
“Why not again this year? We have a great team. You see the work they’re doing and you see last year’s titles. I know where I come from, what the club is and what I need to do.”
