We keep the relation. With Luis, almost every day. The last message speak of the draw that had touched us against them, that any of the two wanted to, by the team that is, that they neither wanted to to the Barcelona, because although today we are not in the best moment somo9s a team respected by the historio and goes to be a very equalised party".

It is something that bothers me that it say and that run the run run this and that many take for granted. The people consumes and believes all what goes out in the newspaper or in the TV many believe it, that put the players, that do the signing and the trainers and the truth is that it is very far of the reality".

It does you see the things of a way… To me calls me a lot the attention how prepares the parties, as it prepared defensivamente and how prepared to attack. It said you exactly where it was the party, how it was necessary to attack to win the parties. I had the bad luck, between comillas, that had long to Guardiola and to Luis Enrique, the two better. Have them so followed and so fast did that I grow a lot in the futbolístico and in the sabiduría tactical that em taught they. I thought that with Guardiola knew it all and afterwards arrived Luis Enrique that it was more or less seemed but em taught more still with small details that he went changing, the same resembled Guardiola but different details that did that it was another thing".

It was advised by lawyers to the equal that my dad, that did all what said us that we had to do, finished solving as you said vos recently. It happened all this and do not complain of this, complain of the deal that received because it seemed me that it was immoderate all what touched me live, of how treated me , especially, by the Madrilenian press, although in Barcelona also had a lot of that attacked me and hurt me the deal because we happen a lot of players and a lot of other people by the same and the deal was not the same".

  • On in which moment took the decision to go : "there is not a 'click'. It is all a way. One knows well to this club, carry a lot of years, the last year was hard. Already we came of before, the not winning. The previous years also had been difficult by how had fallen deleted in the Champions League and all this goes carrying to that it take the decision this, but there is not a 'click' in concrete but there are a lot of circumstances".
  • On the controversy of the directive of Bartomeu when hiring supposedly to a company to speak badly of the players: "The truth is that I did not give him greater importance. It was happening so many things in the much more important club that that as to put me to think or to stop me to see what was happening. I did not give him importance, the truth".
  • On in what deceived him Bartomeu: "(laughs) In a lot of things, the truth that in a lot of things.

  • On the madness of the dismissal of Luis Suárez: "No because I already had it decided before this but yes that it seemed me a madness what did with Luis, speaking in the concrete case of Luis, by how did the things, by how was , and because it went free paying him the years of agreement and gave it to him to a team that went to struggle by the same aims that we. No only the fact that go that it already was hard, but how went ".

But it felt that it was the best in this moment for my, for all, that needed this, that had fulfilled a cycle and was the moment. It would not have to have been so drastic and would have to have arrived to the way to do it well and that it was the best for the club and for me".

I am a grateful eternal to all this, as I said recently I also master to the club, love my city, Barcelona, and seat that I also gave all to the club, a lot of. And that all what gave me the club won it to me and deserved it to me by what did. Afterwards it arrived a moment that I thought that it had fulfilled a cycle, that needed a change, that my head needed to go out of all this, by the líos that there was in the club in this moment, by what came . I knew that it went to be a year of transition, of new people, of young people, and I as I always said wanted to follow struggling by more titles, for going back to litigate by the Champions, by the Leagues and felt that it was the moment of the change and wanted to go me and wanted to do it well. Afterwards it armed all that wrap, the president of this moment did not want and began to filter things to do me remain badly to me and to be the bad of the film and happened all what happened, but I follow being calm that what did was what felt and what had to do in this moment".
  • On if it would go back to command the burofax: "Yes, it is a way to formalise it and do it official. Vos Are saying that you want to go you but do not do at all to do it. I came him saying all the year, no all the year but yes the last six months a lot of times said him to the president that went me, that already wanted to me go, that help me, that wanted to go out and he no, no, no. It was a form to say want to go me seriously. It is a form to do it official and that arrive him to the club".
  • On if it has gone to the psychologist: "it would have to have gone but I went never. I do not know, it costs me give this step in spite of knowing that I need it. They insisted me so that it go, Antonela many times, that needed it. I am a person that save it to me everything for me and do not share it and never gave the step. I that need it by what do, by the day in day out, by what touches me do, and that would do me well, but do not do it".
  • On if be the best generates anxiety: "No, because I do not take it of this way, no game to be it neither so that they say it. Game to win, give the maximum to my team and give the best in each party, no for lucirme and that say that it is the best".
  • On the 2-8 against the Bayern Munich: "For all, by as it gave the party, for losing, can lose, have lost a lot of times and it is necessary to accept it. But yes that it was a moment I last by as it lost , especially because we knew that it was a party complicated, we came dragging a difficult year. We could lose but no of the way in that we did it".
  • On the bad that carries the defeats: "I do not know, from chiquito is a thing that went always like this. It lost and it cried or it litigated me with my brothers when they loaded me because they won me. I am very calentón, in the calentura do not think and say and do what goes out me and afterwards me arrepiento but am like this. I am calentón from chiquito".
  • On what thinks of the politics: "it does not like me, the truth, speak of politics, as it does not like me give my opinion on the pandemia. I try to listen to all and learn. It likes me speak with mine and think, but in enclosed circle. Also it converted the politics in something very rare for the people, more than political parties seem teams of football, the people does fanatical of one and can not think another thing because already there is fight and there is brush, have to go in in discussions. The same here that in Argentina, if you do you of one have to litigate you with the another and is to death one or another. And the truth is that I do not see it like this. I want the best for my country and the one who was would like me that it did the best to change the things and that the one who less has can live well, have eaten and do not suffer and that raise the country, already was in Spain that it is where touches me live or in Argentina that it is my country".

  • On if some time has imagined his funeral: "The truth that no imagine it to me neither want to think it. It was normal by what was Diego, by what did by Argentina and what feels the Argentinian by him. It was to expect the madness when sacking it because it deserved Diego".
  • On what felt with the death of Maradona: "it Was here in my house and arrived me a message of my dad and immediately put the TV and began to see things and me enteré of everything. A madness, could not it believe. If all knew that it was not well anybody imagined that it went to happen this that happened, anybody expected it and anybody can think that Maradona have died and that Diego was not more and that it have happened for real. It was something terrible and a madness".
  • On the calendar compressed: "What matters is to play and fulfil with the television agreements, sponsors and all what can and does not think in the sportsman. Play Sunday, Wednesday and if it does lacking Friday and Saturday. It looks more by the economic interest that by the sport or the game in himself. It likes us play and train and do it, do not know if we feel us used or no, but to us likes us what do and enjoy to play".
  • On what is to play without public: "Horrible, is very ugly the odd feeling to go out to the so big stadium and that there is not anybody, everything very cold, the truth that is ugly and the feeling is very bad, and suppose that seeing it has to be rare, bored and different, and think that therefore they are seeing also the results, everything does that it equalise but. It is not the same to come to the Camp Nou and that east the stadium to pop to that it go out the team and there is not to anybody, the feeling is another and play of another way. The parties are more equalised and uglier".
