Striker Martin Braithwaite is confident that in terms of speed, no player in Barca is equal to him.

In an online session on Twitter on 15/4, Braithwaite was asked who is the fastest player in Barca today. "You are talking to him," Braithwaite answered.
In another question, Braithwaite had to point out what Lionel Messi could not do. "If I had that, I have never seen it," he replied, implying that Messi could do anything with the ball.
The Danish striker then answered a few more personal questions. He revealed that Ronaldo Nazario and boxer Muhammad Ali are his idols.

Ronaldo's hairstyle at the 2002 World Cup was the one Braithwaite wanted the most.

Braithwaite also emphasized his love for Barca, by saying that the Nou Camp is his favorite yard.

 The most memorable goal, for rookie Barca, was the equalizer of Andres Iniesta against Chelsea in the second leg of the 2008-2009 Champions League semi-final. His three compatriots are Allan Simonsen, Michael Laudrup and Peter Schmeichel. 

Braithwaite moved to Barca from Leganes in February, for $ 20 million. He was seen as a plan to fill the void in the Catalunya's attack, injured by Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele. Since coming to Barca, Braithwaite has often publicly admired Messi. 

He once compared a player to a Golden Ball six times with God , and did not dare to wash clothes after being hugged by Messi.
