The Brazilian midfielder says he feels very flattered to be complimented by one of Barça's legendary players but adds he will keep his feet firmly on the ground.
Arthur Melo is turning out to be one of the revelations at Barcelona during the early part of the campaign. The good impression which he has left, especially in adapting so quickly to the Barça system, has won him a lot of praise - and among those who have been impressed is Xavi Hernández.
Feet on the ground
"To receive praise from a player who I was a huge fan of is a massive confidence boost for me, but I have to know how to deal with any praise I get. I can't let it go to my head. I feel very lucky to have my family to guide me through the difficult times, that's why I brought them all with me to Barcelona because moving to Europe was a big change in my life", Arthur told Globoesporte today.
