Fontas excited for 'special' Barca reunion

On-loan Real Mallorca defender Andreu Fontas says he is looking forward to facing parent club Barcelona on Sunday in La Liga.

Fontas, 22, joined Mallorca on a season-long loan in October after it became clear that his chances of breaking into the first team at Camp Nou under coach Tito Vilanova were extremely limited.

Fontas told Catalan daily Mundo Deportivo on Friday that it would be odd to play against his friends, but he was very much looking forward to the game.

"It will be strange, in truth, as until very recently I was training with them," Fontas said. "I am looking forward a lot to taking on Barca and playing a good game. I know I will feel something special."

Fontas, 22, said he did not feel he needed to prove anything to Vilanova and that his only concern now was ending Mallorca's recent run of poor form, which has seen Joaquin Caparros' side pick up just one point from their last five games.

"It is just one more game," he said. "I am hoping we can end our bad run of results, I do not have to prove anything to anyone. Barca do not need the three points as much as we do, they will remain leader anyway."

The former Spanish U-21 international said he appreciated Barca not following many other La Liga clubs, including Real Madrid, by using what has become known in Spain as a "crapping-yourself clause" in the loan agreement to stop him playing the game.

"I appreciate that Barca are letting me play," he said. "I do not understand these clauses. What better day to watch your own player than in a game like this?"

Bartra said he was just happy to have a chance to play after missing the last five months of 2011/12 with a cruciate ligament injury, and held no grudge that fellow La Masia graduate Marc Bartra, 14 months younger, had overtaken him in Vilanova's pecking order.

"My main problem was the injury," he said. "When I began to get time in the team, in the Copa del Rey, was when I got injured. Then I began this pre-season, but obviously at a lower rhythm than my teammates. It did not bother me that Marc passed me out because we have been together many years and I know his ability."

The Girona born player, who revealed he had been close to moving to Real Zaragoza and Malaga on loan last summer, said he had no problem playing as a holding midfielder for Caparros' side.

"He asked me if I wanted to help and I told him yes, that I was very excited at the idea," Fontas said. "He asked me to play as a 'pivote', a position that is not new for me. Before at Barca I played in that position, and for the B team too in more than one game."
