Barcelona midfielder Alex Song has admitted that he feels an extra responsibility playing for the Blaugrana.
The Cameroon international joined the Camp Nou side from Arsenal last summer, and has conceded that he is a role model for younger players.
“You always have to lead by example,” he told reporters at an event sponsored by Qatar Foundation.
“I am at the best team in the world, so young players will always look up to you.
“I have children and I know that I have a responsibility. You have to look at someone like Messi to see how it's done.”
