Rivaldo Is an ex footballer that touched the peak of his career playing with the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona during the past decade, even winning the Balloon of Gold like Barcelona. Now it is ambassador of Betfair and does sportive analyses for said house of bets, speaking on some subjects in the panorama futbolístico without forgetting never to the team culé, that is to little more than a month to celebrate his elections to the presidency.

The ex Brazilian forward pronounced on Joan Laporta -one of the big favourites of face to the elections- and his idea to plant an advertising canvas a short giant metres of Santiago Bernabéu. "What has to do is to centre more in his own ideas and projects before that think more in the ones of his rivals", said Rivaldo, to the that did not like him the initiative of the precandidato.

The ambassador of Betfair considers that said action was not necessary. "Cause to the Real Madrid and to the city of Madrid with this step does not seem me a good idea", commented, adding that "I am at variance because it does not need to expose like this after the big success that had with the Barcelona in his first stage like president. With this costs him so that the public remember it, the fans culés have not forgotten of him".

"Laporta Has to leave to cause to the Real Madrid and centre in his ideas"

Rivaldo Also gladdened of the two consecutive victories of the FC Barcelona in LaLiga Santander against Raise and Real Sociedad. "It is well, because with these victories have approached to the high part of the table and still remain a lot of parties for playing", expressed, puntualizando that "this is a team renewed, that is for doing. All what was to put too much pressure on his shoulders will not come him well".

The ex international Brazilian considers that in the FC Barcelona would have to follow a philosophy resembled ladel 'split to party' implanted by Diego Pablo Simeone in the Athletic of Madrid. "I think that the philosophy of the party to party would help them. Centre only in the following meeting and not extracting conclusions further of each day. The Athletic does it and the Cholo always says it. To the Barcelona would come him well", considered.

Rivaldo Also spoke on the possibility to delay the position of Leo Messi. "It would be a fantastic midfield player, and even would come him well because it could lengthen his career without need to do so many sacrifices, was playing for the Barcelona or for another club. Although clear... To Messi what likes him is to be in the area, near of the goal, so I do not imagine me that it go to adopt this role. In a reconversion like this the opinion of the player has a lot of weight", commented.

The competition between Pedri and Coutinho

Rivaldo elogió The good exert of Pedri with hardly 18 years. "Since I saw it I had it clear. Has a lot of talent and shows a big personality in the lawn. Pedri Is called to be an important piece of the Barcelona inside very little time", signalled, insisting in that "it is important to not to plant him a lot of pressure and give him his space so that it evolve and improve to his age".

On the other hand, the titularity of Pedri is separating to Philippe Coutinho of the alignments, by what Rivaldo gave him a council to his compatriot. "What Pedri Is teaching him to Coutinho is that in each party have to be braver, try something more in each meeting. If you do not do it, you will lose your place in a team in which the competition has so much, so much talent...", it argued.

Nevertheless, Rivaldo considers that the ex of the Liverpool and of the Bayern of Munich will go back to win the place. "We forget us sometimes that Philippe Coutinho is to title in Brazil and this can say it very few. It has shined in the Liverpool and with the Bayern had a good paper to win the Champions. I think that sooner or later, it will answer to the expectations", sentenced the ambassador of Betfair.
