Dani Alves: “Maicon is strong”

Dani Alves, Brazilian and Barcelona right-back, was asked today after his team’s training session about potentially losing his starting berth to Roma’s Douglas Maicon.

“Maicon? Honestly it doesn’t bother me, we’re all partners. Maicon is strong of course, we all know it, but his shadow doesn’t make me lose sleep at night.”
