Dani Alves shuts down journalist at Barcelona press conference (Video)

Dani Alves knows how to handle himself at a press conference.

The Brazilian full-back spoke to the media after Barcelona’s 4-0 Clasico victory…well, not all of the media.

After a journalist from Madrid publication Marca asked for the Barça man’s thoughts, Alves quickly dismissed him with a knowing grin, before also clarifying that he wouldn’t speak to another Madrid paper, AS.

He also smartly brushed aside references to Gerard Piqué’s comments that El Clasico makes him horny…

Alves seems to be in his element in moments like this, while he tends to be comfortable whenever Real Madrid are involved.

The 32-year-old has a better record against Barcelona’s rivals than any other member of the squad, dating back to his time with Sevilla. In fact, no player has ever defeated Los Blancos as often as Alves.

You sense he has every right to be as calm as he is.
