Quique Setién appeared this Friday at a press conference, and made an analysis of the current situation of Barça. The coach talked about the duel against Eibar in LaLiga, about the interview with Leo Messi, the Champions League, Martin Braithwaite and Sergio Akieme
In spite of the climate of revolution that lives in the club, the FC Barcelona follows centred in the football, and this Saturday will measure to the Eibar in the Camp Nou. The Catalans confront to a key week in his battle by the title of LaLiga, and besides also have to show his best version in the return of the Champions League, that next Tuesday them pondra to proof with a demanding visit to the Napoli in Saint Paolo.
Quique Setién has left the clear things in the previous press conference to the crash, in which it has underlined which are his priorities. The preparador Cantabrian has recalcado that encara the calendar split to party, has explained that the enredos institutional do not affect to the staff and has remembered that, in spite of the illusion for playing in Europe, first is necessary to give the size in an important appointment in the domestic championship.
"We are very concienciados with this party that remains before facing other three important, but the first is the Eibar and have treated of mentalizarnos and face it as if it was a final. Add the three points is vital because no only will allow us will be here but it will reinforce us for what comes us. It is necessary to do the things well although we think that it will be easy, because it does not go it to be", has valued.
Besides, it has insisted in that the emotion by the European appointment does not have to turn into distraction: "it Is true that take into account the party of the Napoli, but first want to win east. It is possible that affect to two or three players, but will do a team to win. Of course that have a lot of illusion with the debut in Champions, but am a calm person. The Eibar and Mendilibar do the things very well from does years".
After hinting on the rotations, has reflexionado on the growth of the team: "These two weeks 'clean' came us very well to work calmer and with more loads, but the requirement already know it. Here it is very important to win all the parties and play well. This is a process. I think that the team has played well in a lot of moments in all the parties. It is true that have not won with clarity any except in the Glass in front of the Leganés, but had a lot of options to mark more goals and each party that happens generate us fewer occasions".
In this sense, has matizado the statements of Leo Messi on the options to conquer the 'orejona': "there are things with which agree and others that no so much. I have seen all the years, in the last twenty, how have won a lot of Champions, and have the same options that other teams. It is true that there is not margin of error and that we have to improve things and do them well, and are not happy with everything, but think that go growing little by little and reaching levels that will allow us compete with all the rivals".
"Here it is very important to win all the parties and play well, this carries a process"
Questioned in several occasions by the internal tensions of the club, like the debate on the forward, or the recent indictments by a campaign of desprestigio, Setién has been rotundo, and has put the focus on the football. "We are centred in winning parties, in treating to play well and in that our public enjoy; the other affects us little. The changing room gives by good the explanations of the president", has resolved.
As it was to expect, the míster has commented which are his intentions with the recently arrived Martin Braithwaite: "Surely we will see to Braithwaite in some party to title. We will go deciding, but now would be a bit premature. It comes in a state of perfect form, but there are details and concepts that still have to explicáselos and has to learn. But we are safe that it will help us a lot".
"Have a lot of faith in Braithwaite because we follow it from does time and know what can contribute. No only by his quality but because also it works him very well the head. It is possible that play tomorrow. It is a footballer that can adapt to play of tip and also in a side. We will go it seeing, but in any one of these two positions could help us", has analysed, anticipating that the Danish will have minutes.
Setién Speaks of the problems in defence
In addition to evauar the state of the forward, Setién also has referred to the problems in defence, since Clément Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti are apercibidos: "we do not go to risk to the two, trust both and is possible that appear this card that force them to rest, as to others. Sometimes I happen time without sleeping because they are two different players and that contribute a lot of things, and after choosing to one think what would have happened if it had played the another. Sometimes I do not decide it, I do not say you that five minutes before the party, but almost".
Finally, it has 'wetted' on the situation of Riqui Puig and Sergi Akieme, that debuts in an announcement with the first team: "The quarry is for something. Without Jordi Alba, if by any circumstance happened something with Junior think that the youngster is quite prepared to help us. It does not like me refer me to a player in concrete because there are a lot of boys that are competing to be with us".
"It is not easy because they measure to players of a lot of level. Riqui is doing it Very well and putting many win like the rest. They are footballers with a big potential and that in a moment die can be. Another thing is to take out to a professional, that is playing very well, so that they play they. If any of the ones of the first staff relaxes me , surely play the youngsters. And in cases of extreme need, as the one of Akieme, with more reason", has sentenced.
