After a series of seven consecutive triumphs, a defeat in front of the Eibar and a tie against the Slavia of Prague have caused that it wobble the confidence of the staff, but the míster repeats that win to the Celtic of Vigo is the best remedy for the evils, in which it does not be necessary to detain too much.

In the previous press conference to the duel against the Galicians, the Txingurri has analysed several individual cases, and has referred to a subject that has restless to the fans. In his conciliatory line, the trainer barcelonista has asked calm to fine-tune the connection between Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann, whose tuning on the lawn still has not left see. After the usual questions on the subject, has been clear: "it speaks a lot of this and is simpler of what seems. I understand that Griezmann is accustomed to an a bit distinct game to the ours".

It is necessary to expect to do the moment of the desmarque. Griezmann Is generous in this and has to find this moment. Griezmann Has to accustom to do the desmarque and the mates, to find him", has detailed.

In this sense, has signalled that this is not simple for any star, and has put like example to a big fellow of the '10': "To Neymar also cost him the first year, because it is difficult, but when you find the conjunction all goes filmed".

The Barça needs the best version of Griezmann

Further of his links with the mates, to Valverde demands him that it find the ideal lace for Griezmann, that is not attaining contribute his big talent to the Barça. The one of Macon is an ariete contrasted and his years in the football of elite endorse him, but is costing him too adapt to a group in which it does not exist his usual position. The Frenchman is not a leading centre neither neither extreme, by what between all it will be necessary to define the alternative that improve his performance so much to personal level like community.
