Playing in what many consider to be the best team in history Daniel Alves has been a consistent player throughout the history of Barcelona. Not only for Pep Guardiola but as well as all the other managers that have stepped in to fill in the spot.
So far with a unbeaten in this season of the Spanish League La Liga, Barcelona are at the top of the standings with 28 points and a narrow 2-1 victory when they battled it out against their rivals Real Madrid, one of their main powerhouses is Daniel Alves.
Explosive runs down the flanks is what mainly characterizes the Brazilian defender who has earned his place in Brazil’s starting XI lineup alongside his rival and team mate Marcelo of Real Madrid. The Seleccao are the slim favourites to win the World Cup according to the online betting australia website, though Unibet have made Argentina the joint-favourites. Either way, everyone agrees they have a great chance.
Even with the success that the Catalan club has achieved for the past years, the Brazilian stated that improvement is always an option.
“We won’t win if we don’t improve on what we did last year,” he told their official website.
“The first half got away from us, in the second we had more possession and we created the chances to win the game. He said after their match against Almeria.
“We've shown our competitiveness and we try to do things in the best way possible.”
He also suggested Barcelona to make a move for Fraser Forster as Victor Valdes is expected to leave the club at the end of the season.
"We have played Celtic three times in a year now and each time Forster has been fantastic," Alves told the Spanish media "He has had to deal with the best attacking players in the world and each time he has done very well - even in the games Celtic lost. Barcelona is a club that is always looking to add quality and its clear Forster has real quality’’.
