Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu has affirmed that the arrival of Douglas will not affect Daniel Alves.
The 24 year-old, who plays in the same position as his countryman, will challenge for his starting berth, but Bartomeu insists he hasn't had to justify the switch to Alves.
“The President doesn’t have to do that. He talks to the Coach,” he said, as reported by Football Espana.
“As we saw the other day, he had an outstanding game. The club is good to all its players and he is a valuable asset.”
