In this month the Madrid has played very well and the Barcelona has remained second. During the last years have cambido the returns. The Barcelona has the problem that it was founded to win it all, like the Madrid. In the moment that does not win it everything... The fans of other teams are accustomed to not winning. Here if it does not win everything is a failure. Be second, for example".

"In other sports be second is an honour. The players and the comments on them form part of a show that I already have lived. Now it touches him to the Barcelona react, because it is second... Remain second is not a failure is a very big success. Now the problem is not the one who the Barcelona have to win LaLiga, but it has to lose it the Madrid. The culés do not conform us. We have to win it everything. It would be very boring if this happened always. The problems arise when the things do not go well", sentenced.
