Tomorrow it will not be available and for the Supercopa will be complicated. For afterwards we expect that it can be. Desconozco If it will have to operate. We have not spoken of this. Our idea is the one of that in this time these annoyances go ", aimed.

Valverde elogió The faculties and the attitude of the Brazilian, that will debut in League with the Barça in front of the blanquiazules.

It thought that if sucedía, did not go to be so prompt, but his agreement allowed it. The same that in August attain that it remained , now has the clause to go out.

To the thread of the section of exits, the 'Txingurri' admitted that it does not see problem any with Arturo Vidal, in spite of the rumours that situate him in the Inter and of the complaint of the Chilean to the club by a debt.

In the daily work, knowing to Arturo all follow normal and trains normal. I do not see any problem", affirmed.

Arthur will not play until it was to 100%

The drop of the Brazilian is being longer of the expected, although the technician cleared that it prefers that it recover well to that it was renqueante during months. "The fact that it was not is a setback for us. We go to see if it can recover in the planned term, but would not like me that it was as the previous year, that went renqueante all the season. If we have to expect a bit more, we will expect, but we need it to 100%", explained.
