Malcom suggests his Camp Nou injuries were because of short Barcelona training sessions

Malcom talks to Cadena Ser

Last August, Brazilian forward Malcom left Barcelona for Zenit.

Malcom only spent one season at the Camp Nou after signing for the Catalans from Bordeaux.

During his spell in Spain, Malcom scored four goals for Barcelona in 24 appearances.

This week, Malcom has spoken to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser to reminisce about his time with Barca.


Malcom reveals how short Barcelona training sessions were

Unfortunately for Malcom, much of his time at the Camp Nou was spent on the treatment table.

And, according to the Brazilian, his injuries may have been caused by the short training sessions at Barcelona:

Here (at Zenit) we do double sessions, At Barcelona we trained 40 or 50 minutes and for that reason perhaps I got injured [laughs].


‘We have to get rid of the Coronavirus fast to see Leo Messi again on a pitch’

Malcom was also drawn into discussing Leo Messi’s influence at the Camp Nou.

The Brazilian gushed about the impact of the Argentine, saying:

He doesn’t have too much power, we were all a family in the dressing room.

Leo is not the president, he is the captain and he helps the team.

He would first speak with us (players) and then to the president or the coach.

Messi is incredible. At Barcelona, I played alongside the best and learned a lot.

I think Messi will play until he’s 40. We have to get rid of the Coronavirus fast to see Leo Messi again on a pitch.


Malcom shares his best Barcelona memories

After joking about the length of Barcelona’s training session, Malcom also waxed lyrical about his time in Spain.

In short, it was clear that the Brazilian had no regrets about his spell in Barcelona:

Of course I miss Barcelona. I have good memories. There were very good people and I liked the fans.

My best moment (was scoring against Real Madrid) and then (scoring the goal against) Inter.

It was a dream to play at Barca, I learned a lot – both on and off the field.
