To start with, the central has referred to the Supercopa of Spain, and has warned on a Seville to the that does not be necessary descartar for the victory, although they will struggle so that the title remain home: "The Seville can be the rival against which more times have played since I am in the Barça. Always they are very competitive, gives the same which players have. They do the things very well from does years. The conditions change, is only party, is Morocco... But we will adapt us".

Respecto In the change in the tournament, that will contest to a party by fault of dates, has explained that it is a natural question, opening the door to keep it like this in the future.

I am happy for being it, but to be followed the same and trying win titles with the Barça. Happy, but at all more. I will keep on being the same. I suppose that the age brakes you sometimes, but will not leave to say what think in each moment for being captain".

"It can be a message that the four captains are canteranos. In this case the canteranos are veteran. For the youngsters that are in the quarry is a message. It is truth that was there is a lot of investment, a lot of money for youngsters that prevail the economic to the sportive, but would help a lot of if here confíamos more in the people of the house. If we achieve that the youngsters with level go up fast, perhaps decide to remain in spite of having good economic offers", has reflexionado on the subject.

Hammer speech on signings and quarry

Continuing on his statements on the Masia, has justified a change of style that does not consider such, but it touches to mix canteranos and signings: "there are a lot of opinions and each one has his. In this house are very special and understand the football of distinct way to other clubs. I think that they have fichado players that will contribute a lot of. Vidal will give us a lot of. In the period of Pep had to Keita. Find Xavis or Iniestas... There are generations that do not go out. But Arthur is a show how touches it".

I think that it has fichado well and think that are very competitive of face to what comes, independently that fiche or no".

This yes, in his condition of leader of the changing room has not doubted in launching a wink to the youngsters. "I expect that have an important role. Players like Riqui or Miranda have a lot of level although they are young. I think that the youth is not important when have talent", has left to fall, with a glove that will have to collect Ernesto Valverde along the course.

"Already I spoke with the president before the team went back of turns it. I spoke with him, like other times, and comment this subject between many others. To be followed forward. I do not think that there is doubt of my level of barcelonismo neither of my love to the club. Never I wanted to hurt to the entity. The president knows it and is everything well", has sentenced.

Another question crashes was the one of his continuity in the selection, and has closed a stage without giving more detours: "I Spoke with Luis Enrique does some days. It called me and I commented him that the decision already was taken and meditada does time. It was a very beautiful stage, of which am very happy, but now want to me centre in the Barça. They remain me years in the Barça, expect that those that more better, and want to enjoy them"
