After the party that the FC Barcelona played in front of the Seville and that finished with victory of the Barcelona (4-0), Ernesto Valverde appeared in front of the media to give his vision on the meeting. Of course, also it commented the sounded final of meeting that finished with Ronald Araújo and Ousmane Dembélé expelled with red direct.

The Barcelona technician recognised that the Seville generated a lot danger and that the victory fell of his side by the effectiveness. "It was a party complicated and important for us. The first time the marker is quite been bulky for as it was the party. They have forgiven a lot because they have had a lot of occasions. This is what is. They posed a party of pressure, to leave spaces, and we have had more hit. Here it has been the key", said.

On the expulsions, the Txingurri considers that the one of Araújo was not not even lacking and, with the one of Dembélé, did not wet . "This is the criterion of the referee to the hour to value the faults and all this type of thing. The expulsón of Araújo, that was his debut... To me it did not seem me fault. The of Dembélé is a mystery", said, adding, on the Frenchman, that "do not know what will have said him, but do not think that was a too long sentence".

"I do not know what has said Dembélé, but do not think that was a very long sentence"

On the game of his team, remained satisfied. "I recognise that the result of the first time has been been bulky. In the beginning have not dominated the game as it would like us, had difficulty to go out from backwards. Had a pair of players playing in positions that are not accustomed. Therefore it thought that they went us tighten. We did not go out well and they arrived us well by the sides. I have to recognise that the parties that have this difficulty it is necessary to take them out, and here have been rotundos", commented.

Valverde Remembered the importance to take out the results forward. "We have to improve determinate things, but for us was fundamental to surpass this situation of not adding so many points in the start, that has been odd. Always we want to win and in Champions could do it and today also. It is well that we are where are now", said.

It remained happy also with the debut of Todibo: "it Is a player of the that expect a lot of him, is very powerful. Has a lot of margin of improvement. In the future it can be important, in the present also. In the next parties has possibility to participate". Also with Semedo playing in the left: "I see Him very well. In the right is looser. The other day I saw him very well against the Inter. When it played by the left in Dortmund did it well. To the hour of the offensive deployment helps us a lot. It is not his natural leg but has desparpajo".


Valverde Commented also the titularity of Arturo Vidal. "We finish like this with the Inter the party. Wanted to give him continuity to this because it wanted to give him some retouching to the team. We knew that they went to be cooler and was the only midfield player that had not been headline in any party. He has arrival to the area and has showed it", explained, on the Chilean.

Besides, it explained the changes that had done in the eleven. "I try to do what think that is better for my team. If I see that it is better to change, as change. I do not stop me to think. There are a lot of possibilities in determinate positions. It does not answer more than to this. At the end you want to find balance. Have a lot of and very good players", concluded.
