Barcelona’s coach Ernesto Valverde does not even think that his team is a secure finalist in the Champions League. On Wednesday, Blaugranas beat Liverpool 3-0 in the first match and had a solid advance before the rematch in England on Tuesday. “We have a good lead but the dispute is not resolved. We saw what the rival is the way, “said the coach of his press conference before the round in La Liga.
On Saturday, the Catalans are visiting Celta, but the match is not important to them, so they have already won the title. Valverde, however, wants his toy to think only about the Balaidos match and only then focus on the upcoming Anfield meeting.
The coach announces that he will make changes to the council. At the same time, Juergen Klop does not have this privilege, given that he will fight for the gold medals in the Premier League. “I do not think we have an advantage for that, and Liverpool still had one day’s break more than we did before the first week.”
Although Catalans have great chances of trembling, there are people who have not been successful. “It does not matter to us what they think. The important thing is that we ourselves appreciate what we have achieved, “the coach said.
Zinedine Zidane said there was no way Cristiano Ronaldo could be replaced by 100% of anyone in Real Madrid.
Here’s what Zizu said:
“Ronaldo’s situation is such that he can not change – he is gone, we can sign with any footballer, but whoever comes can not repeat everything Ronaldo has achieved.
This is sometimes the case in life. Cristiano has achieved great things in this club and we are happy for him. He is in another stage in his career and I’m tired of repeating the same thing: at the end of the season we will not win anything, but we will try to finish in a strong way.
We should try to finish as far as possible before Atlético (Madrid), which is currently second. That is our goal, “said Zidane.
