“I am very happy. In these moments I remember the support that I have always received from my friends and family. It’s a dream that is coming true.

“It’s not easy because in this club there are always the best players and there is huge competition but the goal of reaching Barca’s first team is what makes me keep working every day and in the end the reward comes.”

The Barca Atletic captain also spoke about his time with Rafa Marquez’s side and how it’s helped him develop.

“I look at my time at Barca Atletic with incredible pride. I think it has helped me grow a lot as a person as well as a player,” he added.

“I think that it has helped me learn about complicated situations and also about beautiful ones, that can happen in the world of football. and I am very excited to end this stage with promotion and I hope we can achieve that on Sunday.”

Casado and Barca Atletic take on Cordoba in the second leg of their play-off final at the weekend, with the tie locked at 1-1 after the first game.
