After 84 years, Thomas Vermaelen has finally scored his first goal for Barcelona.

The 29-year-old moved to the La Liga club last season after gradually getting pushed out of the Arsenal first team.

A cruel twist of fate then left the Belgian injured for pretty much his entire first year.

This season appears to be going a little better since the centre-back has now made three appearances and scored his first goal for Barca against Malaga. The goal was the only one of the match, so meant he managed to win his team three points.

The defender spoke after the match about how pleased he was to be on the score sheet.

Joking aside, I doubt anyone actually harbours any malice towards Vermaelen and I hope he’s happy with his new team.
