- Football Barcelona’s fourth lever: sell more assets but still need 30 million
- Football The detail of Joan Laporta with Lewandowski’s agent
The race against the clock Barca to register its latest additions, or at least most of them, will not end until 7:00 p.m. this Saturday. Until then, the club will work tirelessly so that Xavi can count on the brand new pieces of his second project at the helm of the club, including both the refied Dembélé like the renewed Sergi Roberto.
The coach, however, did not hesitate to be openly optimistic in this regard. “Right now, we are all very positive. The club has just announced the fourth of the famous levers and I think we will get it, maybe not 100%, but we have up to two hours before the game starts to sign up players and we are optimistic. Am very happy with what has been signed and now it’s time to translate it into the field”, harangued the coach, who does not rule out that the squad will have more news between now and the closing of the market.
“There is market until 31 August and we are pending, but for there to be entries there must be exits”, assured the Barça coach, aware that there are several names whose future at the club is uncertain right now, such as those of Aubameyang, Memphis or De Jong. ” I count on Aubameyang, those who I don’t count on already know, from my mouth, but between now and August 31 anything can happen. With De Jong, well the same as with Aubameyang. He is an important player, he is in the squad and if I can use him, then perfect. Later, we’ll see what’s going to happen, “he explained. In the case of the midfielder, he took iron away from the reaction of part of the stands at the Gamper.” I heard applause. The public is sovereign, it has the right to express itself. We are a family and everyone makes efforts, what happens is that people read what they read and then react, “he explained.
with memphisFinally, as he would point out later, the situation is also similar to that of the other two cases. “The ideal thing would be for the market to close when the competition starts, but that’s not the case,” lamented a Xavi who, of course, had words of praise for the new great Barça idol: Robert Lewandowski.
“Beyond his scoring ability, which also, because he has a goal and makes a difference inside the area, he stands out for how he understands the game. In attack he gives us a lot, he unloads the interiors very well and I think that, with him, we take a step forward as an extraordinary team. When you see the hunger and humility with which he works, it’s impressive. There are no coincidences”, explained the Barça coach, for whom the presence of the Pole can also be of help for an Ansu Fati who is fighting to return to being the one he was before his serious injury. “I think that the presence of Lewandowski can subtract Pressure. Ansu can mark an era, because he has that differential characteristic that very few have and, in addition, he has a goal. It must be important, that is very clear, “he asserted.
It’s time to prepare the eleven for the debut in the League. Meanwhile, he assured that he does not feel conditioned by knowing in advance with whom may or may not count. “It has little influence, because we work with different systems, different variants, but, play one or the other, it varies little. We have almost all the positions doubled. And, furthermore, we are quite or very optimistic”, stressed a Xavi who, in no case, wanted give your team the label of favourite, no matter how well it has been reinforced. “I would not say that we are favorites nor that we have the best squad in the league. In the end, all of this must be demonstrated on the field, with facts, with results and with performance. We will be valued for that. The sensations are very good, but we are not favorites at all because last season we did not win anything. Whoever starts as the favorite must have won something. What we are is candidates for everything, “he settled.
The season, moreover, with the World Cup at the end of the year, will be strange. “We plan vacations in the middle of the season. We will adapt, perhaps with another pre-season with the non-World Cup players and we will pray that the World Cup players come back safe and sound. It is important to have a broad squad, with guarantees, because there will be injuries and sanctions, and we are arming it”, said the Barcelona coach. For now, injuries, precisely, are respecting his squad a lot when in the past the infirmary was filled one after the other Mainly due to muscular mishaps. “Without wishing to be jinxed, I think we are working well. People have joined and the goal, on a medical level, is for everyone to be available so that I have headaches when making the line-up, because sometimes, last season, unfortunately, it was done alone,” said a Xavi who is also convinced that the one in Qatar will be a completely historic event: “Because of how they have prepared and because of what I have experienced there, I think will mark a before and after“, he sentenced.
