In statements conceded to the media in press conference, Quique Setién reviewed the last hour of the FC Barcelona in the previous of the party against the Naples, this Saturday to the 21 hours (Spanish hour) in the Camp Nou. The Cantabrian technician thinks that his team arrives to the duel in a good moment anímico, and that the last weeks of trainings have been a great help to finish to adjust and review concepts.

"Already the feelings that remained us of the last party were positive, needed a rest because so many parties followed tired us, have had sufficient time to prepare the party, clean us, and go back with this energy renewed that it has allowed us do very good trainings", remarked Setién in press conference, desvelando besides that it already has chosen the eleven headline against the Naples.

"It is quite decided the alignment of morning from does some days, the position of some players can vary, but yes is decided the alignment", commented. It does not think that his continuity in the bench of the FC Barcelona go to depend on what suceda this Saturday, neither that it can treat of his last party at the head of the team. "No it has gone through me the head in any moment that the one of morning was my last party, have prepared the party thinking in that we go to continue".

"I spoke with Arthur before it went , the reality is that from here have not gone back to speak with him"

Asked after the fact to have of a so short staff, Quique Setién thinks that in spite of this the Barça is able to win the tournament, seconded besides by the support of the canteranos of the filial. "Never it knows , sometimes have all the options is much better because always it allows you choose, have a lot of players of the filial that can help us if necessary, to all would like us have all the players that are in the staff, but it is necessary to adapt, will treat of not throwing in fault to anybody".

Dembélé Carries some days training with his mates, but Setién has preferred to leave him out of the announcement when being too prompt for his comeback. "We have been thinking in the possibility to summon him, but alas the trainings that has been able to do with the group are very few, is not with big confidence and think that is the best decision is to not to carry him".

We have been thinking in the possibility to summon to Dembélé, but the trainings that has been able to do with the group are very few..."

Those who yes have a lot of possibilities to play in front of the Naples are Riqui Puig and Ansu Fati, that have given freshness to the team in the last parties. "They are two players that are in conditions, whenever they have acted have done it enough well, could be headlines and play".

On the controversy with Arthur Melo, ensures that it has not gone back to speak with him since it went on holiday to Brazil. "I spoke with him before it went , the reality is that from here have not gone back to speak with him, what have known has been through the club, had liked me that it was different but can not say at all more", commented on the midfield player.

The Barça, as it ensures Setién, has very very studied the game of the Naples: "we Have thought in everything, and valuing during quite a lot of time cual was the best option to play this party and have taken a variant that does not want to say that we can not it change sometime of the party; it is a team that can hurt us with the balloon, combines well, has improved a lot his possessions, very disciplined defending, goes to be a party with alternatives".

The Barça will not go out to especular against the Naples

The culés, besides, will go out to bite and to win from the minute one in the Camp Nou, without thinking in the result. "The identity and the DNA of the Barça has not lost , since we have arrived have treated to contribute some things that thought that had to contribute in accordance with the identity the Barcelona. We have improved a lot of things, is missing us continuity in keeping those things that do well".

One of the keys, without place to doubts, will be to conserve the balloon and that the Barça exert the command of the possession and of the rhythms of the party. "The best of the all would be to know read the moments of the parties and do what require in each moment, choose well these moments is the important. If we are able to conserve the balloon, go to have fewer possibilities that do us goal, will treat to be all the defensive that we have to be when the rival have the balloon, the reality is to understand the moments", ensured Setién, that has clear the theory. Now, it will be necessary to put it in practice.
