The appearance of Eric Garcia ends. Thank you very much for following her with us. It has been a real pleasure. Until next time!
Desire for revenge in the Nations League: “Hopefully we can reach the final phase again. We face two very difficult matches against Switzerland and Portugal, but I am sure that if we do what the coach asks of us, we will fight for classification”.
Technological revolution in the National Team: “Everything is evolving a lot. Technology advances and is being implemented in football little by little. These things are effective, with the ‘walkie-talkie’ the coach corrects us from a distance”.
Have you joked with Asensio?: “If we had to laugh about all the rumors that come out, we wouldn’t stop. They are things that come out and stay there. We don’t talk about it.”
The play with Mbappé in the Nations League final: “It was obvious that this play was offside. They have changed the rule. A little late, but at least they have.”
Zubimendi as replacement for Sergio Busquets: “You have to be careful with comparisons. Busquets is the best midfielder I’ve ever seen and Martín, although he’s at a very high level, has just started his career. I shared the Olympic Games in Japan with him and he surprised me, but I repeat what I’ve said before: he’s a Real Sociedad player and he has a contract there. I don’t know what’s going to happen”.
The little role of Piqué: “Gerard has some qualities that he has shown in the last 10-15 years. He is one of the best central defenders I have seen, he is top in the world. I learn from him every day. I am sure that when he has minutes he will show the great central defender that he is “.
The importance of Luis Enrique in his career: “I’ve always said that I’m very grateful to him. It wasn’t easy for him to trust me last season, for sure. I feel grateful, confident. The things he asks of me are very similar to what I do at Barça. Every time When I enter the field, I try to return the confidence he has given me”.
Japan, demanding rival in the World Cup: “I hope we beat them. They are a very difficult team. In the Olympic Games I could see it. They have a lot of individual talent and they are a very organized team”.
