Samuel Umtiti scored his first goal with FC Barcelona this weekend against Celta. Leo Messi gave him the assist and the French defender didn't forgive from close range.

After the match Umtiti spoke to Barça TV about Luis Enrique's departure: "We need to respect his decision. I am sad. I am thankful because in part it's because of him that I am here". 

3-4-3

About Barcelona's current tactical system, Umtiti added: "It's working well. For the defenders it changes a little, but it's positive for the team. Against PSG it will be different but we need to try to play the same way than against Celta".
