In statements conceded this Friday to the present journalists in the room of press of the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, Ernesto Valverde has answered on multiple subjects candentes of the Barcelona actuality, and has showed cutting in relation to the importance that the team concentrate only and exclusively in the competitions in dispute.

In this sense, so much he like the medical services take care with mimo to Leo Messi, and sees complicated that the '10' can be recovered to play the Tuesday in front of the Borussia Dortmund in Champions League. "I am not medical, seems that it opened him to Messi a bit the scar and have gone with a bit of calm. I see it difficult for the Tuesday, although it already is in terms to go back", has signalled, showing convinced that the Barça will go recovering effective with the step of the days. "We go to go recovering little by little players of the leading line, but have team to solve the drops".

"If it does not play Rakitic is news, as if it does not play Arthur, Busquets, Vidal..."

It says to have not read the extensive interview conceded by Messi to the newspaper 'Sport', because of the malinterpretaciones that almost always do the means. "I have not wanted to read the interview to Messi, are how expresses , know him, seems that all the world interprets and reinterpreta what says, when it expresses of natural form, does not be necessary to give him more turns". And it does not show concerned by the future of the rosarino. "It does not have to me concern the future of Messi, each one decides on his future the same that the club decides. I read it does not do a lot of interviews, but I see it natural".

That it was not the '10' will be a big hándicap for the FC Barcelona against Valencia and Dortmund, but the 'Txingurri' warns of the quality of the rest of the team. "That it was not Messi is important for us, do not go it to deny, but have had other moments without him and have taken out parties forward. We want that it go back prompt, but overcoat that go back well. We do not want that it give another step backwards", ensures.

"The drop of Messi go it to notice always, but there are players that have to step forward. Griezmann Did it in front of the Betis and want to that have more continuity", has puntualizado on Antoine Griezmann, signalling besides that sees to Luis Suárez already recovered. "We think that already it can be", it has stood out, leaving clear that the Uruguayan will form part of the announcement after the train of this Friday.

"It did not go us badly the year happened with the trips of Hammered, did a big year"

It has recognised also the big competition that there will be this course in the centre of the field, although it thinks that the players have to think in the community and no in the individual plane. "I do not think that the player remain touched by no means. Have a lot of players in the average and that do not play. If it does not play Rakitic is news, as if it does not play Arthur, Busquets, Vidal... This year they go to go out a lot of questions on if they do not play some midfield players. It has come Of Jong and Sergi Roberto play now in the average. They remain fewer spaces".

On the businesses and constant trips of Hammered out of the football, to Valverde no him proecupa as long as they do not affect to his performance. "It did not go us badly the year happened with the trips of Hammered, did a big year and if in his free time wants to go to see a tennis match, as what go him to do". Finally, it has warned on the dangers of Valencia CF in spite of the fire caused by the cessation of Marcelino García Toral.

"It will be an alike party (to the of the final of Glass of Rey). Although it has changed of trainer only does two days and comes of some periods of good results with Marcelino, have not had time to change a lot of things. It put us in problems the year happened in the three parties, especially in the final of Glass. A 4-4-2 classical, lines very together and to the against". Said remains. The Barça will not be able to walk with detours in the Camp Nou.
