The central defender of the Spanish National Team and Barcelona appeared before the media to analyze his football moment and his options to go to the World Cup in Qatar. Before, Spain must confirm its classification to the final four of the Nations League.
Asensio and Barcelona: “Marco is a great footballer, he has been showing it for many years. He has a contract with Madrid, he is in another team. It is a pleasure to enjoy him in the National Team”.
Criticism of his person: “The truth doesn’t affect me. I had to get used to them last season. They surprise you but you have to get used to it. You have to focus on yourself and listen to those who really know, the coaches”.
Technology of Luis Enrique: “It serves to correct. It is something more effective and novel.”
Criticism of Ferran Torres: “Football players have to get used to criticism. He has shown how good a footballer he is, he has spectacular numbers. I have no doubt about him, he is confident, working hard. Things end up coming by themselves. Sometimes the ball doesn’t go into the goal.”
Competence in the defense of Barcelona and Selection: “In both places. At Barça there are five central defenders of a very high level. It’s a good thing, already at Barça and the National Team. It is important, it makes you more connected in the small details and training. If the coach decides that you should play, you have to be ready”.
Undisputed players for Luis Enrique: “We cannot relax. Everybody when they are in his team wants to play. That in those situations when you don’t play, the coach calls you is something that reinforces you and gives you confidence. We have to give our all and restore his confidence on the pitch”.
Japan: “They are a very complicated team, we could already see that in the Olympic Games. They have a lot of individual talent and as a team they are very strong. Hopefully we beat them again. ”.
Figure of Luis Enrique: “I have to be very grateful to him. As a player you feel confident. He asks me for things similar to what they ask me at Barcelona. But you have to show confidence on the pitch”.
Pique: “Gerard has some qualities that he has shown in the last fifteen years. He has been one of the three best centre-backs in history that I have seen. He will show his great level when he has minutes”.
Zubimendi-Busquets comparison: “Busquets is the best midfielder I have ever seen. Martín is starting, he has a high level and it shows, but for now he has a contract with Real and I can’t tell you what’s going to happen”.
Mbappé offside in the final: “I think it was clear that he was offside. A title screwed us up. A little late they have changed it, but at least they have rectified it. Hopefully we can get back to a final phase. I think the team is preparing well for it. If we do what the coach tells us, we can reach the final”.
Best sticker for the World Cup: “The shield of Spain will be the protagonist. We’re a team”.
Lewandowski: “He is a star in Poland, an important player. He is showing at Barça how good he is. If we face Poland in the World Cup I hope he doesn’t have the day”.
Sergio Ramos: “The coach has already answered about his possibilities. From here to the World Cup many things can happen. Defenders, midfielders and goalkeepers can enter.
