Gerard Deulofeu: I returned to Barcelona a mature player

Published on: 14 November 2017

Gerard Deulofeu has no doubts he's a better player since returning to Barcelona this summer.

The winger was re-signed from Everton after three seasons away from Barca.

"The fact of going to new teams and listening to the coaches makes you mature and think about what is happening," Deulofeu told the official Barcelona media.

"This has helped me to change a lot.

"As a person, when I was younger, I was crazier and I did not think about things that much. "

Also, the La Masia graduate spoke about his evolution as a player having returned to the Camp Nou to work under Ernesto Valverde.

"I have improved, especially defensively," he said.

"Now I am a team player, before I was more of an individual."
