The Dutch goalkeeper wants to start

Jasper Cillessen wants to play. Barcelona's second choice goallie conceded an interview to Helden where he has spoken of his willing to become a starter and play more often.

"I came here to be in the line-up, no to be a tourist", he said. Cillessen also explained he started to work with the sports psychologist Marco Hoogerland to help him deal with his current situation.

"I don't like losing and being in the bench it is a little bit like losing. I have to make one step behind first to take two steps ahead in the future and become Barcelona's and Holland first choice goalkeeper", he added.

Cillessen made his debut with Barcelona in the league match at Camp Nou against Alaves (1-2).
