In the last days some statements of Arthur Melo had been misunderstood by some media. The Brazilian midfield player ensured that it felt more freed that in the FC Barcelona while it played with the Brazil of Tite, by a mere positional fact. Some understood that it was not to taste under the control of Ernesto Valverde in the Barça, thing that Arthur never wanted to say.

Well, recently it has conceded some statements to 'Sport' in which it has wanted to leave clear that did not command any 'recado' neither 'dart poisoned' to Ernesto Valverde with his words, neither much less. "The one who wrote the matter was a bit malintencionado, because what I said was that in the Seleçao had a bit more than freedom to go backwards and can take out the balloon", escuda the Brazilian.

Arthur, in this sense, ensures to be adapted so much to the style of game of the FC Barcelona as to the of the selection of Brazil. "Brazil and the Barcelona have at present two different styles, are two teams that do not act tácticamente equal. And I am adapted to the two systems and achieve to play so much in one as in another without any type of problems".

"Brazil and Barça have two different styles, are two teams that do not act tácticamente equal"

In the 'canarinha' can give exit to the balloon from backwards and organise the game from the start of the played, whereas in the FC Barcelona this task recae in Busquets, and he is used to to receive more like steering wheel, surpassed the first line of pressure of the rivals. "The greater difference is that in the Barcelona begin to participate in the construction further up, behind the first line of the opponent, have to receive more between lines and arrive to the attack, here with the Seleçao go further back", explains.

And use a strategy or another does not mean that one of the two was desacertada, according to Arthur. "There is not a form that was true and another mistaken, with the selection play of a determinate form but have not said that in the Barça does not seat me well and that what do in my club was wrong", has insisted, before giving the subject by resolved and ensure that it already is "entirely recovered" of his injury.

Arthur fits to perfection in the double pivote

Therefore, it expects him in the following party of the phase of groups of the Glass America, in which it will act as of habit in the double pivote at the side of Casemiro, in 4-2-3-1. By in front it will have a line of three composed by Philippe Coutinho, that has freedom of movements and that occupies the role of Neymar, beside David Neres (Ajax) and to Richarlison (Everton) open and up, as false '9', will be Roberto Firmino (Liverpool).
