The FC Barcelona has lived a very moved day this Tuesday, that has been news by the interviews of Éric Abidal. The one of Saint-Genis-Laval has heaved the voice in his conversations with the newspapers 'Sport' and 'Sportive World', and with more or less tarpaulin has treated to shed light on the acutalidad of the club. In addition to Leo Messi, Ernesto Valverde or Xavi Hernández, the French also has referred to the sportive planning.

The technical secretary has answered on several subjects strictly futbolísticos, and one of them has been the research of the forward. Along the month of January spoke of numerous options to cover to the lesionado Luis Suárez, but finally, a short days of the closing and after several refusals, decided that the best was to go on without contractings, a dangerous strategy after the relapse of Ousmane Dembélé.

According to the Frenchman, there were a lot of contacts and collected information on the alternatives in the list of possible reinforcements, but any finish satisfying the requirements of the directive and the technicians. "I assume the part of risk that touches us with a shorter staff and with the decision of not bringing a nine, but trust the team, and the directors are doing a spectacular work thinking in the short, in the half and in the long term. Now, in the moment to move in the short term, there were some nuances in the moment to negotiate, but assume totally the decision".

"My opinion was or bring one well or not bringing to anybody", has added, before standing out that it is necessary to take into account that the rival clubs also try to protect his interests, what bumps in occasions with the wishes of the Barcelona: "In the market there were not a lot of options and when seeing that some could not go out of his clubs, decide not bringing to anybody. There are clubs that can open you his doors and others that no. And from here, it is necessary to assume the decision of the club and this also is a part of risk inside this game".

"If I listen a bit the opinion of all on the one hand says that it is necessary to bring a forward, and on the other hand says that the quarry has to go up. We neither can put caps for the players of house and surely are footballers that have less experience, but learns of what did in the past", has ensured, without going in to value farewells like the one of Abel Ruiz or Alejandro Marquis, that have left touched to a filial that litigates by the promotion and that will have less effective to help to the first team.

"I assume the risk to having decided bet by a shorter staff, but trust the team"

In this sense, has warned that the goodbye of Carles Pérez has to exclusively to the criteria of the trainer, and that it was Quique Setién the one who commented him that it went to play little and that had too much quality as to play in the Barça B: "We like club renew him because have a project, but the trainer says what thinks. The decision has been his, Carles knew that it could remain , but had to accept what had said him the míster. It went to have minutes or could choose go, and in this case, we were opened to any negotiation".

Abidal Took advantage of also for desmarcarse of the criticisms of Ivan Rakitic, that recently revealed to not to have sense very treated by the technical body of Ernesto Valverde, that invited him to do the cases does some months. "Only I can speak of sportive situation, I always have called him to say him what thought, do not hide me of at all, am very transparent. The only problem that can have is sportive, of minutes of game. We are not here to take out to players or mentir, the decision always sera his. To me never it said me at all", it has related.

Abidal Trusts the new bets of the Barça

After happening on tiptoe by the most delicate subjects, Abidal has boasted of the new bets of the Barça, like the Portuguese Francisco Trincao: "we anticipate Us to the market as we did with Of Jong. They are distinct players, but is very easy to expect to that a player explode and afterwards go to buy it. It can be a risk because it costs 31 million euros, but if it remains ten years here, sure that it will be cheap. His projection in Barcelona have it clear, now the future will say us. It is the same that did with Arthur. It advanced his arrival and hit".

"We advance the operation because it could complicate . The teams try to do like us and anticipate to the maximum the signings. There were clubs interested and this is well because if it does not adapt , will have sure options of exit. We are not to sell but to help that they grow. Trincao Is a footballer with a lot of quality and that it can arrive of second line. It marks goals and can help us", has reflexionado.

Besides, also it has spoken of the future of Matheus Fernandes, that like the forward of Viana do Castelo, will have some months for apaptarse before giving the jump to the Camp Nou. "It is a player to the that follow from the 18 years. We want that it adapt prompt to Europe and therefore we have left it to the Real Valladolid. It has to grow to come to the Barça", has desgranado, highlighting that it considers them important pieces for the future.
