The FC Barcelona starts LaLiga 2019-20 this Friday with a demanding clash with the AthleticClub . The Catalans visit Saint Mamés with the intention to give his first step to another title, that would be the third consecutive and could turn into the ninth in the last twelve years. Ernesto Valverde has faced a press conference this Thursday, and has thought on several questions of the actuality barcelonista.

In the first place, the extremeño has analysed to the rival, and has not walked with detours: "Of course it is a party complicated to start with. We know the potential that has the Athletic in Saint Mamés. I think that already there was a first party of League there recently. A team that exerts pressure up, has personality and is one of these marked stadiums in the calendar like one of the most complicated. Obviously we want to begin with good foot and go to by the third League followed, something that has occurred few times".

Along his appearance, the technician has received some questions on Neymar, and has recalcado in several occasions that will not give details on the Brazilian. "I am to the margin of all these questions. I centre me only in the team and the players that have. Have respect by the footballers of other teams. He is of the PSG and am very happy with the staff that have. I am very happy with the players that have and will not speak of which are not", has insisted.

"The best staff always is the one who have in this moment. When it trained in the Athletic had to do them see that we were the best. You do not are used to to pose you things that are missing you, but improve the virtues. I am the trainer, what deal is to adapt me to the players that have. All what does in the club goes through several opinions", has explained, before 'wet' on a change in the rule that considers that it would benefit to the Spanish football.

"LaLiga Would have to do like the Premier and close his market before beginning"

The Txingurri thinks that to take example of England and close the market of signings before the start of the official competitions would be ideal, since like this it would avoid the uncertainty to have to assume some high and additional drops when the tournament already has thrown to walk: "The normal is that when it begin the League the market stop . It is not normal that go to begin the season and the market was still in movement. The normal is that the team that begins was the definite. These 15 days of uncertainty are not good. It would have to be as the Premier".

After demanding an adjust that they also have asked other trainers, has referred to the war between LaLiga and the RFEF, that loomed during some weeks the start of the tournament: "it seems Me incredible this war of the schedules. That the League and the RFEF are put in east wrap and that have not solved after so much time think that remains the championship touched. It does not matter us play the Fridays, know that the Mondays are delicate for the fans, but the clubs benefit of them and, in consequence, also the fans".

Finally, it has mentioned another hot subject in the City Condal, the one of a marked pre-season by turn them and the transoceanic trips. Although recently it had left to fall that it was not the best situation to prepare the campaign, has opted for centring in the positive conclusions: "it had come Us well some week more than training, some session. In general lines the team has gone to more, especially the last party in front of the Naples. But I am satisfied".

Valverde Ensures that the Barça will go back to struggle by the titles

Valverde Has been questioned by the aims of the new course, and has commented that the priorities are to follow livestock and, obviously, play better, although it has not wanted to pillarse the fingers promising results: "it would sign to arrive to the month of May like this past season because this is inmejorable. Arrive to these dates being able to win four titles is the ideal, clear. Ojalá Arrive to 1 May with two titles. It is very difficult that repeat have the title in the month of April".

"It is an aim that has all the world, play better. Sometimes you achieve it and you win by goleada, in others remain you a bit short. If to me they compare me all day with George Clooney have it difficult; if to me they compare me with the best Barça of the history have it complicated. If I stop me to look that in two years of championship have lost four parties and the half of them when we already were champions...", it has left to fall, warning that they will treat to reach put them without putting more pressure of the necessary.

After signalling that it expects to follow having Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal, has explained that it will not risk with Leo Messi, that carries some weeks working to the margin of the group to recover of an injury in the sóleo of his right leg. Although the feelings of the Argentinian are positive, has preferred to be wary: "Of course we will not risk with any player, less with Leo. It has not trained still with the team and is not the same to do individual recovery that work with the group. We go to expect to see".

With regard to his plans for the team, has not wanted to explayarse too much, and has manifested that the novelties will go applying in function of the performance that give: "The position of right side is here for the player that I decide. Have several footballers that can do it, Moussa, Nélson, Sergi is truth that am it 'testing' in the centre of the field because it is missing us dynamism here; Nelson after time is prepared to face this poster to be headline, the thing is that this is today, everything will depend of the performance".
