About the captain of the FC Barcelona, was very clear. "Anybody can doubt that Leo Messi wants to to the Barça. It states me. I have not spoken with him of these subjects. It would not be convenient to speak without having faculties to decide. They have to happen the elections. But our relation is of respect and affection. The best for him is to expect to see who wins and which project has. I think that with a good proposal, would decide by the Barça. And to me it knows me. It contemplates that it follow, but have an alternative plan. He wanted to leave this summer, was disappointed by how had treated him , and in this do not go in. But he wants to to the Barça and will give him an opportunity to the club. Already we will have a conversation to help it to decide and that it was the best for him and for the Barça", said.

He does not move by the money, although we have to be to the height and it is necessary to recognise to the players and value them professionally.There will be time to speak. It can him do an economic proposal on a long-term basis that it motivate him", commented.

Before fichar, it is necessary to look what there is home, in case have to any of first level. We will be prepared to reinforce the team if it asks it the trainer.
