Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has hinted at the start of something big for Jose Arnaiz following his goal-scoring debut in the Copa del Rey on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old marked his first start for the Catalan giants by scoring the third goal in Barca’s 3-0 win over Segunda B side Real Murcia at the Nueva Condomina this week.
And, having already earned a reputation as a lethal finisher in the Barcelona B team, Valverde admits he may look to the forward more often in the future.
"He [Arnaiz] is a player with self-assuredness," Valverde said.
"He has the goal in his head. I believed he could help us in this game and that it's good for them [the B team players] to come and face a situation like this.
"He scored a great goal, he has a powerful shot. It's a first step. We'll see if we can help us more."
