The leader has gathered in the Camp Nou with the journalists of the program 'The Suplement' of 'Catalonia Ràdio', and an extensive conversation with reason of the 120 anniversary of the foundation of the club has reviewed diverse key subjects of present, happened and future of the entity.

In this last section has stood out one asks after on of the rest, and is that it continues the discussion on the intentions of Leo Messi. Although it has recalcado that the decision is in hands of the Argentinian, has signalled which are his perspectives: "it would like Me sign an agreement more with Messi. Has a lot of route by in front. We have spoken many times and it does not have problem to follow. It will finish playing here until the want to, until it withdraw . Already it said that his club is east. I do not have doubt that it finish here and like him want".

"I read for being the best, for giving what has given, will be the one who will say when it stops. We will do him so many agreements as it want to. Ojalá Can sign him another agreement like president. It finish in the 2021. I yes that finish, but to him remains him a lot by in front. He will fix the terminos. Has age, experience, the right to decide how and when wants to finish. It will not go never of the club, east is his club, the club of his life", has added.

In this sense, also has valued the stage that will open when the one of Rosary of a step to a side: "That his career finish late... The other day in the Gala of the Balloon of Gold saw to ex players of 39 and 40 years. To Messi, that is 32 years old, still remains him a lot. Besides we have the young talent that arrives of the Masia. Ansu Fati Has renewed, but also are Aleñá, Frenkie of Jong that finish to arrive, Ter Stegen or Dembélé. It is necessary to prepare the future with players younger. The day that leave to play Messi, the game will be different".

"Now it is necessary to work for the improvement. We are also in a situation of one some complexity, since there are players experienced, that have won it all, players of 30 years, with jovenes that push. There is a work of link and it is necessary to find points of union and follow winning titles", has commented, insisting in an idea that has repeated from does time, and is that the base for the attainments post-Leo Messi edificará through the perlas of the Masia beside some young stars that can arrive from the market.

"To Messi still remains him a lot, but it is necessary to prepare the future thinking in the youngsters"

The Barcelona president also has 'wetted' by Ernesto Valverde, of the one who ensures that it is not so serious like sample and on the one who also has valued his continuity: "I Have seen to a lot of trainers and all are serious. The responsibility is tremenda. There are few clubs in which it demand as much as in the Barcelona. Here it is necessary to win it everything. Ernesto out of the cameras is a person entrañable, facetious, fun. Has agreement until the 2021. The spring there is an option in which so much he like the club can decide if continuan or no".

"Valverde Has agreement to the end of my mandate. They will decide it he or the Barcelona. To follow, a trainer depends on a lot of variables. We have seen lately periods very short. Three years perhaps are sufficient, but is a decision that has to take he. It depends of the exhaustion, of the tiredness, although I see to Valverde ilusionado, that wants to do it well, wishes successes and wishes conjugar to these players that have won it all as the new generation that tightens by behind".

Bartomeu speaks of the Classical and the aims of the Barça

Bartomeu, that has confirmed that the project of the Espai Barça advances to good rhythm and that the bet like that follows intact, has thought on another hot subject, a Classical loomed by the delicate political situation and social that lives in Catalonia. "I am not concerned, Think that do an act reivindicativo during a football match of civic and sober form is compatible. I do not see problem in that they coincide. Besides the partner of the Barcelona already knows that has the freedom of expression, of movement, to put banners reivindicativas", has reflexionado.

"There are not restrictions, was the one who was. Without abusing, the partner podra come to show his reivindicacion. The Camp Nou is a stadium in which always we have claimed us of form pacifies. I think that in this case there is not reason to suspend the party. It is a Classical , is an important commitment. We are in a moment exceptional of the history of Catalonia and the Barcelona already has manifested against of things with which do not agree", has added.

Finally, it has remembered the aims barcelonistas, that go through the conquest of all the possible titles: "The aim is always the League. It is the competition by which more bet every year. Also we have accustomed us to that it already is little for us. The League is the competition that want every year. It is the investment that do, whereas the Champions is an important challenge, as they are it the Glass of Rey, the Supercopa of Spain, the one of Europe or the World-wide of clubs. These give us the global image that want. Therefore the aim is the triplete, the sextete. Of the last does already ten years".

It has not hid neither when it has touched him speak of defeats, that has signalled that they have to serve to grow: "In the Barcelona have had some defeats that weigh a lot and that hurt. It is Liverpool, but also is Rome or the duel in front of the Juventus. All the world thinks that the Barcelona is invincible, but there are rivals that tighten. The defeats serve to work, concienciarnos. Has to take advantage of this defeat. It taught us that we are not the only, that are not the best, that there are people that works to win".
