Of the FC Barcelona to the Borussia Dortmund and of the Bundesliga to the Real BetisMarc Bartra has gone back to LaLiga in hardly some seasons, but to his 27 years already speaks like a true veteran. The defence of Sant Jaume dels Domenys has compared the idea of his current team with which learnt in the Masia, and thinks that the philosophy can cuajar in Benito Villamarín.

In a recent interview, the Catalan has commented the brave proposal of Quique Setién, that has pleaded for to do play to the verdiblancos, something that does them take a lot of risks but that little by little goes convincing to the fans: "it needs patience, but already being the first year have seen parties very good, what wants to say that to short or half term can also give very good level".

"For example, to Pep Guardiola cost him a lot of in the Manchester City because they were players that had not practised this football, and look them now, there is not the one who stop them", has signalled the tarraconense, adding that inside his capacities, the Betis has to struggle for reaching this level and keep it in the "best league of the world", something that is really the complicated.

"Before it arrived Johan Cruyff there was not any philosophy Barça, went from here that it established , went using this system, this philosophy, and afterwards these players that believed it, played it. The important is that once that it does it the first team and the club feels it like this, implant in the inferior categories so that they go up with this idea", has explained Bartra, that has remembered that "the best period of the Barça has been when players of the house have been in the first team".

The selection, an aim

In his speech, Marc Bartra also has referred to the selection, a clear aim in a year in which besides it will contest the World-wide of Russia. "Julen Lopetegui knows that for me also is important to be here. It is resembled what plays the selection. He follows a lot the Spanish football, all the football of which can be selectable. Follow the line of these parties, less the second part against the Real Madrid is key", has admitted.
