Chico Flores is an authentic globe-trotter of the world of the football. It has played in Cádiz, Portuense, FC Barcelona B, Almería, Spain sub 21, Genoa, Mallorca, Swansea, Lekhwiya, Granada, Rubin Kazan and, now, in the Fuenlabrada. The defence gaditano followed the campaign #MARCAEnCasa and made a direct of 'Instagram' in which it left interesting statements in 'nail Barça', especially speaking of Xavi Hernández.

In the first place, it remembered his labeling to the egarense in a Barça-Almería of League, that was described like "obsessive" by the ex captain culé. "It seems that it remembers me by 90 minutes, but have it like an anecdote. Hugo Sánchez posed the party like this. He said that in his period was normal and that had to follow him to all sides. Even I saw me with Xavi and with Guardiola speaking in the bench. Afterwards I coincided with Xavi in Qatar and have to say that it is a big fellow and a big person", manifested.

The Andalusian remembered his duels with Xavi in Qatar and, besides, sees to the egarense like next technician culé. "In Qatar were in the two stronger teams. There was a big rivalry and almost always litigated by titles. I won many (two Leagues, two Supercopas, a Glass of the Prince and a Glass of Emir), but did good crumbs. I gladden me by how it goes him to him and I think that will have a big future", explained, adding that the Catalan "will be the next trainer of the Barça".

Chico Flores also remembered his go through the FC Barcelona B. "It was a very beautiful stage. I coincided with Guardiola and Tito Vilanova. I learnt a lot of them and of the club, of this wish to play always well to the football. Being a boy had the opportunity to train with Messi, Ronaldinho, Eto'or, Deco, Iniesta, Xavi, Puyol... It was a madness", remembered the defender.

In this period, also attained the promotion to Second Division B with the Barcelona subsidiary. "Had a spectacular team (Pedro, Busquets, Thiago, Giovani, Iago Falque...). It can be the team with which more have enjoyed playing the football beside the Swansea. It was a madness. We played in the Mini Stadi and won almost always by goleada. We played us the promotion and win 6-0", remembered.

Especially good is the memory that saves of Sergio Busquets, to the that thinks that did not weigh him the fact to be son of an ex player of the Barça as Carles Busquets. "Memory that in the Barça B did not want that they valued him by his surname, but has finish being one of the best mediocentros of the world", explained.

Train with Guardiola

Chico also commented what supposed for him train to the orders of Guardiola. "It is a world-wide reference and, at the beginning, imposes you. Afterwards I learnt a lot of of them. You inculcaba a lot of sportive and personal values: play to the football, have personality... The last party played us the category and put us a video of a father that did a triathlon with a handicapped son before going out. It said us: 'If there are people that do things inimaginables... You that are some privileged can not do less'", sentenced.
