When you're in Barcelona, ​​how you get better mate?

The dress really is a very healthy, where there are good people. There are kids that come from the lower living together. I have no problems with either, I have an excellent relationship with every player on the roster. Maybe that's why in the courts, the time to play, we find it easy because in addition to lead well, we have been formed together from below. In the same spirit of play, which is respecting the treatment of ball handling periods of play and sacrifice for the team to the fullest.

Since his debut in Barcelona, ​​what you feel you changed the personality?

I think I grew both personally as well as football. I passed the important things in Barcelona, ​​as in the selection, although this is not going as well as in the club. But I'm happy because I notice that the changes made were for the better and hopefully I can remain so.

You looked a player ¿especially in Barcelona as a kid?

I was lucky that when I arrived at the club was Ronaldo. It was always a player I really liked as it unfolded on the court. Great for a striker as defined by the speed and technique he had.

Just arrived at the club, the players already enshrined, are you giving advice?

When I got were also arriving Riquelme and Saviola. Also, I had the pleasure of sharing a dressing room with stars like Ronaldinho, Deco, Motta and Sylvinho, who were people that I will be eternally grateful that they were always beside me, guided me in every time from the first moment I did feel very comfortable. At that time I was 16 and the truth that although they are excellent players, recognized worldwide, the group made me immediately for me I do things a lot easier.

Xavi: "Cesc would not come to take off the place but to become better"

Xavi always has things to say. Whether you are in full competition or in the middle of your vacation. His words will never remain indifferent.


Sandro Rosell has threatened to sever ties with Real Madrid, how-captain, what do you think?

Had to do so. The script demanded it. Do not forget that we were accused of doping. I do not know if Real Madrid indirectly. The president was right. Respectful, positive messages and correct with respect always. The truth is not changed one iota of 'Tarannà' Barcelona. Respected around the world. He was very good, strong and aggressive when he had to say and do. To me very well. Quite correct. We are obviously with the president. We have been accused of doping, we have attacked directly and it is ugly. The president acted. Somehow they are acting legally against these allegations and that gives us comfort and confidence. This meeting since I have entered have been with us and that is appreciated.

Prior informed them what was going to do or what he would say

He is free, is the president is the boss. He does not need. Also we were on vacation. He is a person who has treated us very well at all times, great. It acts as president. We need not discuss anything. If there is any problem, he descends to clothing or Bartomeu or Rossich, down to discuss the play. Very good communication in this regard, but never told us what to say.

Breaking relations is basically not going to eat or to the stage

It is nothing serious, but simply that if Real Madrid is behind all these accusations, it is not known nor is there anything concrete, would be logical to break relations. It lies within the normal range.

Now that it has been almost two months from the junction of the classics, you've talked with Casillas to calm down everything ...

No. I have not seen. Neither with nor Xabi Alonso Iker. But we see every now and then in the selection, and neither are we to call it. I have not had the opportunity to talk with them. The next call is August and if I called and talk, but I talked to Del Bosque and told me everything was fine. I also spoke with El Guaje ', Pedro and Sergio Busquets after the friendly and told me there was a total normality. But if you talk to someone speak and point.

There. Just like that?

You have to understand that the most important is the respect and the players we respect a lot. It is a regular topic of stress, nerves, everybody wants to win. Sometimes things are done and out of line, but hey that's it. We want to make a fresh start to get everything back to normal in the selection.

How about Neymar?

Still have not seen him play. Some images in the news, but little else. A whole game, no.

Now taking advantage of the Copa America will see it?

Yes, we are talking to friends who are football fans to see some games. I want to see the level of Argentina and Brazil, Alves, Messi, Milito, Adriano, Masche. I wish them well. It is an interesting Cup. Great teams, young players such Neymar. Let's see how it goes. I know very little of it.

And Alexis?

In this I know him better because I confronted him in the World Cup against Chile. It is an extraordinary player. Also I have followed at Udinese and is a fantastic level. Physically strong, very good one against one, a warrior, works for the team. A very good player. If we signed a signing would be extraordinary, really.

Do you think it would adapt well to Barça's style of play?

Bielsa has grown up with, somehow know how to read the game well and work collectively with the partner. Would fit perfectly. For me Bielsa is one of the best coaches in the world and the concepts work very well football.

The two names that sound more are Alexis and Cesc. 'Two signings' top'?

Absolutely. A Cesc already know everything. I hope they do the signing. He has this strange feeling of wanting to come and can not come. See if you agree, since two summers ago all this, especially for your own peace of mind. Hopefully come because it is a player who will give us a 'plus' to the team.

In a media outlet reported that you did not want to come Cesc because he had a confrontation with the grassroots

Do I have to answer that?

No, well when you debuted in the first team with 18 years Cesc was 11. That says it all ¿

You know I am. I get along well with everyone. I have no problem with anyone, much less with Cesc. Iniesta Ask how I get on with it, ask Pep, ask the entire team to the selection. I always say the same, the emphasis is mine, the people around me and I want. They know how I am.

How about this controversy if and Thiago Cesc can play together?

We're always the same. I understand that we are in a very competitive world and that people will make a choice: Cristiano and Messi, Valdes Casillas, Xavi and Iniesta, hey, please. We have not yet realized that all football fans can play together. The first thing noticed is Luis Aragones is. So what? Not all work? It worked perfectly. What Cesc can not play with us or Thiago. If you've played all three together this year. What? There are also games for everyone. We have to start kids left alone coming up now, Thiago at 19. Cesc with 24. Now what comes Cesc and competition will be me or Iniesta. Unlike going to be a footballer to be associated with me, Iniesta, Messi and will be the best and he will make us be better at all. People have to keep talking, but the more I come to add, the better. Ah! And then there's Keita, why not talk about Seydou? What about Keita? Have you already cast? With the importance of Keita. And Mascherano? Does not play or what. Nonsense. I'm surprised when they open these discussions because it seems that people do not know football. This is the problem of society, that everyone likes football but a few per cent low understands what the costumes, the partner, being supportive, helping the other.

Man, but that neither the people living

How wrong I'm taking with Cesc six years ago when we played together in the selection. We have won a World Championship and one together. It was also said that Valdes had been wrong and the Queen and people are still talking and nothing happens. I like to talk more football.

Cesc strength to come to Barca

No turning back. Cesc longs to play in the Nou Camp and force to his dream.


The desire of the president of FC Barcelona that future signings demonstrate their desire and work hard in the negotiations for a reasonable price, is having an excellent example Cesc Fabregas. The midfielder is pushing hard to fulfill his dream to wear the Barça shirt. In its first two days in London after the holidays end, the player has been at the height of their professional qualifications and, in parallel, has made clear its intentions to Arsenal. Has rebelled. Want to sell him now.

On Monday went to the medical evidence, had lunch in the clubhouse and returned to his home. Appeared again yesterday morning at London Colney facilities, but remained outside the group in the first practice. Cesc worked alone in the gym. It was his way of showing that Arsène Wenger will not be involved in sports project again after the French are reneging on their promise not to impede their march to Barça.

The Arenys attend daily at the Arsenal training camps on the outskirts of London, but always stay on the sidelines. His pulse is only with Wenger. Will continue to attend the sessions scheduled for the fans' respect for GUNN and his companions, but the divorce coach is complete. His intention is to show the technical Gaul has run out his captain and must respect the commitment to undertake the march to leave the Camp Nou.

The technician can not work with Fabregas in the field and, in fact, has already lost. Their presence in London Colney on a daily basis will be testimonial, since it conceives another idea that his move to Barca.

Yes, the player is not neglecting its preparation. In the evenings is conducting three-hour sessions on their own outside the premises of the Arsenal. Cesc is aware that he must strengthen his muscles after the last session and has suffered at the hands of a renowned physical therapist recommended by Thierry Henry. The Arenys wants to Barca's preseason one hundred percent to earn a spot in the starting of Pep Guardiola.

Both the player and his agent, Darren Dein, hope that negotiations can move forward once Wenger will have noticed that you can not convince him to return to again wear the Arsenal shirt. The French know that Cesc will not accept travel companions with the rest of Malaysia on Sunday to begin Asian tour, which should also move the team to China. If the transfer does not close until Saturday, Fabregas will take another measure of strength and is not part of the expedition and Arsenal must assume that he has no choice but to accept the offer from Barça. The player will tighten the nuts to go out and at the same time, puts his personal preparation for the first time in eight years at the club `GUNN to sacrifice for their coach. Even last season, despite the fact that Wenger kept him, he risk his fitness to defend the computer to the point of falling in the second leg of the knockout stages of the Champions in the field when he knew he was in the focus of attention. This time, Cesc should know that much work specifically on their own, to recover one hundred percent and Asia and will travel to work patterns of Wenger.

This measure of force should be of great help to the club. The negotiation between the Catalans and the London club was on track until the entity Barcelona tried to push the `theft Toral did Jon and Hector Bellerín as advanced SPORT in its Thursday edition, to lower the price of the transaction.

Wenger was furious when his performance was not very ethical in these movements. Arsenal understand that the transfer of Cesc and the signing of two players cadets are independent operations and can not be mixed. The club has used this letter as leverage and, when tempers cool, does not seem an insurmountable obstacle. The vice president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, in collaboration with Darren Dein, continue smoothing out differences with the Arsenal to the 'soap opera would not last until the end of summer.

Wenger wants more money and speculate with offers from City, Chelsea and Madrid, which are superior to the ship, but the player has already made it clear he will not accept another destination other than the Camp Nou. The Frenchman tried to persuade his old tactics and wanted to help assure that she was calm, though his good words have already led to Fabregas to stay more than once with honey on the lips and not willing to be a victim again A charming a snake. Cesc has been asked to bring back the trust and loyalty that has always been shown to facilitate his transfer to Barca and now it's the coach do their part of the deal. No turning back. (via SPORT)
