As it already is usual in the FC Barcelona, Ernesto Valverde​ offers a press conference the day before each party of official competition. Of face to the Supercopa of Spain, the plan did not change and also was foreseen the appearance of the Barcelona technician, in this occasion accompanied by Sergio Busquets, second captain of the team culé.

The press conference of both had to carry out to the 15:45, but a logistical error has forced to postpone the stay of both beside the media to answer the questions. According to Catalan media like the newspaper Sport or Sportive World, the chauffeur culé has been the causante that said press conference could not celebrate.

The appearance of both had to take place in the Training Center of the To the Alhi in Jiddah, reason by which the staff took a bus to direct to the place of the train and, to his time, Valverde and Busquets went up to a van that had to carry them in front of the media. The problem was that, purportedly, to the chauffeur had given him distinct instructions.

The driver understood that it had to carry to the Barcelona trainer and to the midfield player culé to the King Abdullah Sports City, where today will celebrate the party of the others semifinals, that will confront to the Real Madrid and Valencia. The chauffeur would have been warned from a principle by Valverde, Busquets and members of the Catalan club about that the meeting point was the Training Center of the To the Alhi in Jiddah.

Purportedly, the chauffeur would have done deaf hearings to the pertinent instructions of the members of the entity culé and would have directed to the stadium where, logically, anybody expected them. Another distinct version affirms that the driver simply would have lost during the distance.

The press conference, after the training

After the delay, the FC Barcelona informed that the press conference would not be before the training, but afterwards. In this case, besides, also it informed that Ernesto Valverde would be the only that would offer an appearance in the usual format, whereas Sergio Busquets would offer a 'flash interview'.
