Roberto spent much of last season filling in at right-back after Barca failed to replace Dani Alves but he revelled in an attacking midfield role at Camp Nou on Sunday under new boss Ernesto Valverde, keeping his place following the Spanish Super Cup loss at Real Madrid.

"I am happy as I was in Madrid. I felt comfortable and I played in my normal position," he said, as quoted by Marca.
"I started at the Bernabeu, the coach gives me confidence and I scored and I want to continue being an important player," he said.
"During the pre-season I did not start much but now in the official matches I am playing more."
