Ernesto Valverde appeared before the media before the game against Villarreal. The Barcelona coach showed his face and talked about Rakitic's non-call, Dmebélé's return, conceded goals or team status
Ernesto Valverde spoke with the media in the previous press conference to the party against the Villarreal. The FC Barcelona confronts to the 'yellow submarine' this Tuesday in the Camp Nou and the 'Txingurri' answered to all the journalists before this important meeting. The Barcelona technician left clear that the team of Alley will be a very complicated rival and that the Barça has to forget of the defeat in front of the Granada.
"The Villarreal is a team that always complicates us, that this year is having a good beginning spurred by the difficulties that found the past year. Have players very fast up like Samu and Ekambi and players very good inside like Cazorla. I do not know if it will be a party of goals or no. We have to follow the line of the parties of house and abstraernos of what happened the other day", affirmed.
Once it left clear the difficulty that comports the commitment in front of the castellonenses, the trainer barcelonista referred to the big controversial of his list of summoned for this crash. Rakitic Is not summoned after being to title the past Saturday, but Valverde does not want controversial and says that it is something natural. "Each day ask after me those that are not and what can say. As that if it is not Rakitic, is because it goes in another. It is not touched, is a question of players and touches him to him. Already we will see the Saturday", explained.
"If Rakitic is not is because it goes in another. It is not touched and is not question of players. It touches him to him and already we will see the Saturday"
The others controversial that surrounded the list of names for the party in front of the Villarreal were the absence of Carles Pérez and the presence of Carles Aleñá, that carried out of the team from the first day. On Carles, left affirmed that it keeps on being part of the first team. "It is with us and it will be with dynamics of the first team like Ansu. That they can play in the B or in his team is possible, but are with us", said. On the announcement of Aleñá, the same that did with Rakitic, preferred to not to give him importance. "With Carles has not happened at all. It trains well like Rakitic or like the rest and go in ones or others", commented.
The turn of Dembélé and the performance of Griezmann
On the other hand, leaving the controversies of the list to a side, the best news of the list is the turn of Ousmane Dembélé. The French has recovered of his injury and, for the extremeño, will be very useful to give him more disequilibrium to the Barcelona attack. "I expect disequilibrium with him. Always we are expecting a lot of things of him because it can give them and expect that the talent that has show it in the field", admitted.
One of the blackheads of the staff of the Barça until this moment is being the performance of Griezmann. The alone French has played well in front of the Betis and Valencia, both home, but Valverde is not concerned because it thinks that everything is question to go in more at stake. "It has played like leading centre and in a side and the true is that we are not having very good game of attack out of house. But it is not by Griezmann, Ansu or Carles Pérez. It is something global. The forwards have to go in at stake and be resolutivos", said.
"It is not normal that us piten three penaltis in six parties"
Valverde Also recognised that they are happening things that are not normal and that are influencing in the performance of the team. The 'Txingurri' threw him a dart to the referees by the penaltis that have him pitado to the Barça in what it goes of campaign. "It is not normal that us piten three penaltis in six parties. It is not normal that do us four goals home. But good...", it affirmed.
On the contrary of what thinks a lot of people, the trainer culé thinks that the has to of the Barça is more in the attack that in the defence. "When you hit and the contrary no, as all goes of face. And when it happens the contrary, as you do not win. Neither I am seeing that they do us a lot of situations. It is more in ours has to what we generate. But this is a mine assessment", admitted.
Junior and the fault of rest of the central
Junior Firpo will be to title against the Villarreal and also in the rest of meetings until Jordi Alba recover . The left-handed side failed in front of the Granada in the first goal and was substituted in the rest. Valverde, nevertheless, trusts he and in that it know to replace of his error. "It has to be in conditions because it is in First Division and has to be prepared to participate. Generally, when to one change him in the rest is because you have put it to title. And the other, looks. Here all make a mistake. The trainer, the player. At the end anybody hits permanently. The subject is to replace", commented.
"The central have less wear that other players, but Todibo and the ones of the B will throw us a wire"
Another of the subjects that are giving of what speak in the barcelonismo is the rest of Lenglet and Hammered. Both have played it all and, with Umtiti lesionado, seems that they could finish very burned if Valverde does not begin to trust Todibo. The Barcelona trainer hints that will have the Frenchman and with the defenders of the filial, but also that the two central headlines will play a lot. "They are players that already the past year played a lot. They are reliable players. The central think that in occasions have less wear that other players, but there are players that will throw us a wire like Todibo and the players of the B", explained.
Finally, the 'Txingurri' answered to which put in doubt his work and think that could be destituido. "This is like this from the beginning. The trainers always are it to us playing. This is not a novelty for me neither for anybody. In the place where am what command are the results. If you are not forward, the trainer comes under scrutiny. It is not a surprise. This year we have not begun well and it touches us trace back", finalised.
