Baia, who took part in the legends' tournament Star Sixes, in London, and said Semedo "is a very quick youngster, very attacking, he has to improve a few things on a defensive level". 

However, he compared him to Dani Alves, Barcelona's former Brazilian defender. "With time I'm sure he'll improve. Physically he's very strong and I think Barcelona have made a great signing with him. He's young, he has the quality to reach Dani Alves' level. 

"However, he needs time to be able to reach his level. But he has it all to become like Dani Alves."
