Mathieu signed a four-year contract with FC Barcelona on Thursday after transferring from Valencia.

Mathieu has pent most of his career at left back, although he's played plenty of centerback in the last few years. He'll be a welcome addition to a Barca back line that is in need of upgrades.

Despite publicly complaining about not being in the Starting XI, Mathieu will remain on the bench for Valencia, Football Espana reports.

It's never a great idea to take issues with your manager into the public spectrum and Mathieu is learning that quickly. Ricardo Costa and Adil Rami remain ahead of Mathieu for time at centerback.
