He added that if all Barcelona players are in good condition, the club can compete for titles this season.
His words, “Barca need Messi, we need him to achieve great things and fight for the titles,”
“With the score, we were able to make changes and rest very important players like Messi and De Jong.
“If all the players are in good condition, we can compete for all the titles. This streak of results gives us a lot of confidence.”
“I have nothing against Riqui Puig,”
“We have very young players like Konrad, Matheus and Junior who don’t have many minutes, but you always think I’m talking about Riqui. I have no problem with him, we talk often. His future? He has to decide.”
“We needed to win and get this streak going. In the second half our players were able to rest,”
“The goals? The goals are coming. We are gaining confidence.”
