After playing spectator for two matches since signing, Alexandre Song finally got the chance to play for his new side F.C Barcelona. This was during the return leg of the Spanish Super Cup. Unfortunately for him, it was not destined to be a dream start as his team sank 2-1 to rivals Real Madrid. He did put up a good display during the 15 minutes he spent on the field after coming in for Sergio Busquets. However, that wasn’t enough to change the tide in their favour. Since trophies were one of the reasons he signed for the club, this defeat must resonate deeply with the player since he was this close to winning a trophy barely two weeks after signing a five-year deal. Courage Mbuom.
