Young Heracles Almelo striker Samuel Armenteros has revealed it is his ambition to play for Barcelona in the future.

The Sweden international, who arrived at Eredivisie club Heracles from Heerenveen in 2009, has established himself as a key player in Almelo.

And while the 20-year-old says he has no intention of leaving just yet, he admits it has always been his aim to play for Spanish giants Barca.


"It's not just a dream, it's an ambition for me and I think it is achievable," Armenteros told Voetbal International.

"It is not right for me now to move to a bigger club right now. Heracles feels like a Lamborghini to me.

"Here I play every week and in a good league. For now, it is all that matters, and then comes the rest."

Armenteros says he is inspired by the football played at Camp Nou, but has no such feelings for Barca's fierce Primera Liga rivals Real Madrid.

He added: "I hate Real Madrid. It's terrible, this degradation to football.

"Football is more tactics than technique today. It is so good that Barcelona is there. Barcelona is like a pizza after three days without food."
