Alves in an interview with Radio Guaiba de Porto Alegre:
"The truth is that I have not changed the way I play very much from when I played at Sevilla because I am still playing in the same position,"
"What happened is that with Sevilla they wanted me to push up the right wing but with Barcelona I have to be more balanced because there are a lot of quality players going forward.
"For that reason I do not use my attacking skills as much as I did with Sevilla."
Daniel Alves also scored his first goal in a Blaugrana shirt against Almeria with an excellent free-kick from some 30-35 yards out.
