In an interview conceded to the newspaper 'The Guardian', Thiago Alcántara took advantage of the occasion for elogiar to the player of the FC Barcelona and his mate in the selection of Spain, Pedri González, of the one who says that it is "an example of this ancient talent where all is natural because it sees the football of the same way since it was small".

The player of the Liverpool has commented that "the football now has a different speed: more accelerated, more physical. The figure of the ten almost has disappeared. We see less magic, less fantasy. The footballers do more things and faster. It does not do lacking to dribble because you run. All are more developed in this sense. It loses to the different footballer, to the that breathes. The creator that was slower, although have an incredible technician, does not have the opportunity to turn. Those that are not fast with our legs have to be it of mind. It is as in the life: it is necessary to adapt. The football has evolved of a way in which the footballers think more on the collective operation that in a moment of individualism".

Likewise, it added that "I have noticed it in the selection. The youngsters that arrive are fast, are full of wish and very very ready. When it were 18 years old, it took a coffee, seated me, chatted and went out to train. Now, 30 or 45 minutes before, are preparing in the gymnasium with exercises of mobility and strength".

Thiago incide in that "the Spanish footballer is more technical, the Italian is more tactical. In England, the speed is greater in all the senses, whereas in Germany matters a lot the transition from the defence until the attack or vice versa. In France, the young footballers are much more developed, especially physically. Have mates of other countries or play abroad involves to learn elements that enrich you".

On his rival future

Finally, the ex player of the Barça spoke in addition to his ex mate in the Bayern Munich during six years, and the one who will be his rival this Saturday in the Spain-Poland, Robert Lewandowski: "Lewandowski is a big footballer and if there had been a Balloon of Gold the past year, would have won it. It is unfair that could not give of on-line form. His development no only is physical, is mental. Mark more than 30 goals by season but follows practising and perfecting what does well. It is a winner, a perfect professional".
