Adriano warns of El Molinón danger

The Brazilian has not forgotten FC Barcelona’s last two games in Gijón, which ended in a one-goal win for FCB and a draw. “We suffered there last year” he remembered.

Two years ago, only a Pedro goal split the sides in Gijón, and last season a late Villa snatched a draw when defeat was looming at El Molinón. These are two good warnings for Sunday’s return to Asturias. Adriano Correia remembered that “we suffered there last year and struggled to win two years ago. It is a key game, because it comes just before the international break”.

Adriano is a versatile player and Josep Guardiola has used him in several different positions. This season, he started at left back to cover for several injuries in defence, and then played on the right of midfield at Mestalla. But “whether we play 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 it makes no difference to me, I can play further back or further forward. We saw that in Valencia”.

The win in Minsk was the first on the road this season, and Adriano feels “winning 5-0 gives us more confidence. We have had some tough away games and have only drawn until now. We created a lot of chances against Real Sociedad but didn’t get goals like we did on Wednesday.” He also added that the team cannot afford to let the intensity drop in any games no matter what the score.

On his team mate Leo Messi, Adriano Correia agrees that he is the best player in the world. “It is a privilege to play alongside him. There is nobody quite like him today. He is above everyone else.” Adriano is convinced that he will beat Cesar’s record this season and become the highest goalscorer in FC Barcelona history, a feat he is now just 41 shy of achieving.

Adriano ended his press conference with some words for Carles Puyol: “He is a captain who has a lot of force in this team. He motivates us and is a great team mate. He gives us life”. (via FCBarcelona.cat)

The ex-footballer Dani Garcia Lara was delighted with the fitness of Lionel Messi and Argentina said the "continually amazed" as has been seen in recent games which makes him "some time ago in the world's best by far ".

"I think Leo continually amazed. The Leo is trying to overcome every day and when it appears that he has already done, and it will be difficult to exceed it, as it continues to outperform," he said.

Therefore considers that the Argentine is incomparable. "What about the other day was another example of the superiority of what is now Leo Messi in the game with respect to any player, even I think even with Cristiano. To Cristiano you can compare it as for results, but as for game already what usually gives you Messi, long ago is the best player in the world by far", he said.

On the other hand, Dani does not think the words of Pep Guardiola in showing their support for the president of FC Barcelona Joan Laporta could bring instability to the club. "Pep it did was say about a person who is affection as Joan Laporta, who believes that has also done well in Barcelona, ​​and I think it was not his intention. It is sometimes the desire to create controversy than anything, "he said.

In addition, former FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, among others, also talked about the good performance of white and Kaka in the Champions League. "I think the party has been more complete. Above all, for me the important thing was to see Kaka at another level, that apart from the goal, also participated in the other two. The first goal I think was a masterpiece of what a well run counter "she explained.

"Madrid has very good footballers and has a great team. The problem is having Real Madrid in the last years is that is having in front to a team as FC Barcelona", he added, in declarations to Europe Press in the mark of the International Ciudad de Madrid Estrella Damm Trofeo Oxidoc de Pádel.

Finally, Catalan is also said that FC Barcelona and Real Madrid will end up distancing themselves from other league teams: "In the end will be the two teams that will be there fighting, so I do not know the difference as last year , but I think so far. "

"That does not detract from the teams like Racing or Levante, who have done very well against Real Madrid, or even the Royal Society against Barcelona. But I think that the two templates, players have, I think that are far superior to other teams, "he said. (via AS)

Preciado (Sporting coach): "Do not let the grass high and long"

Sporting has scored only 15 and comes about Barca. Is the worst opponent you can have?

Depending on how you look. We have not won yet but motivation and concentration, Barça, despite being the most difficult in football terms, it is the best opponents. I'll have my people hipermotivada and there to play.

Do you feel the noose?

I do not spend an ounce of my strength thinking about it. Would do a disservice to my team. Work as if you were in the Sporting life.

Does the reference is the last League 1-1 in the Molinón?

Yes, that boat was like this. He had not yet yielded a single point but we work out together and we get a point. Against large, our experience is good. We won at the Bernabeu, we only lost by 0-1 at the end and against Barca nearly tied there and did Gijón.

What do you prefer: 3-4-3 or 4-3-3?

I will not manifest itself in this regard but Barca played exceptionally in every way. It is the best team of all time and I do not know if there has been any like him.

Unai Emery could give him tracks?

We are not Valencia. No one can accuse me of being 'amarrategui' against Barca but I'm not going to commit suicide. We would be irresponsible.

How then is for this ship?

Oh, Mom! How should I know? BATE 0-5 In addition, the present image is 5-0 at Atletico. He came to get us four to us and after they thrashed Barca. Some people may think that now we make nine of us but this is not true. Barca have not won in the league was and that gives us a chance to compete. A party can make a hole.

Messi can exceed 194 Kubala goals in Gijón. Can you think of something that has not been said about him?

It has no roof. When it seems that he has already done, invent new things. Atletico's goals were spectacular. It's the best I saw in my life and I do not think there's anyone who can relieve you now. Maradona and Di Stefano have been very great but to me it seems more complete than they are. And by the way, Messi is still starting. Just 24 years.

February seems to be unstoppable but could not make your game in Gijon. Do you have a secret?

No, try not to let a lot of collective play spaces, but are not limited to: Xavi, Villa, Cesc, Peter ...

What gives Cesc to Barca?

Anarchy football. Someone tell me what to play because I still do not know. It seems that it is and put four goals in four games. It is essentially pure talent. It is an astronomical signing breathing Barça. We thought that the club had reached its limits but do not miss it, have come over Thiago and Alexis.

What would you like Barça coach?

Anyone. Maybe Xavi and Andres, I fell great. I like to make any Rondita with them. And Guaje, which is a benchmark of Asturias and I love him dearly. Perhaps even you can train before he retires.

Have you purchased a good glass of wine to return Guardiola makes him welcome in Barcelona?

This is the land of apples and cider but we will try to receive the best.

Is much in touch with him?

We talk sometimes. I called to congratulate him when he was given the medal in the Parliament. He was immense.

Is Pep a friend and Mourinho a profession colleague?

What happened is over. Dead theme, no more anger. With Pep I have more 'feeling' but I presume to get along with all the coaches and I hope that this is an accident and Mou have a great relationship in the future.

Can Botía end up in Barça?

By quality, yes, but also have Fontàs and Muniesa. If he left, I wanted one to change. He is already in the selection. By age and physique, his potential is enormous. Always yields of 8 in all.

Were you asked advice from the club by Jose Angel?

No, if not, he would be in Barça. His level is very high and will show in Italy. It has something to lack some sides: audacity and impudence, and that he would do very well at Barca.

A curiosity. Will leave as some technical and tall, dry grass at the club?

They will not have that problem. We always try to play the field well. I'm not one who trains a way to get the game and change the items to my players. Winning or losing does not go through the detail

[Former president] Laporta: "There is a narrow relationship between Pla and the current board"

Joan Laporta believes that the partner that presented the demand doesn't go alone" although it spread the hand to Rosell for the peace. He also had words of gratefulness to Guardiola for their words.

Joan Laporta went to 'Els matins de Catalunya Radio' where he left several pills on the latest episodes in the heart of Barcelona with respect to the demand for Vicenç Pla. The president of FC Barcelona is still waiting to know how to solve the "uncomfortable" situation but it is clear that the demands of the partner after a hand is going.

"Vicenç Pla alone and will not trust justice. In 2006 it saw was a group of people who did not like to leave reelected. Clearly some of the current board know Mr. Pla. The sure knowledge "Laporta hinted.

For Laporta this demand "is out of place" and confirmed that "there is a very close relationship between Pla and the current policy" because "their strategies much overlap in both demands."

"It is unnecessary all this. If we attributed these losses for these eight days there were other people on that board that have not been dotted. This guarantee is untimely and unnecessary," he said.

At this point, Laporta thanked "infinitely" words Guardiola support, on the other hand, uncovered some controversy from the perspective of those who wanted to see Pep positioning in favor of some and against others, rather than the technical took care to deny.

"Guardiola has changed everything. I thank Pep what he has done and has shown with this act, speaking from the heart, you do not want these things happen in Barcelona. We all want to enjoy Barcelona but from the way of truth. We do not want forgiveness or mercy, only justice, "he said. He added: "Pep has manifested itself as a person who loves the club and is experiencing a situation that bothers you. Right now we can not fully enjoy what happens in Barcelona because of this. And that is precisely what Guardiola has done. "

Laporta was upset with the whole situation that is being built around him and made public their dissatisfaction with the lack of appreciation for all that its board built in the past.

"I am disappointed because there has not been a gesture of thanks for all you did for the club. We have good management and now take revenge, with a board that helped Barca cionstruir the best ever. We leave the current board an undeniable legacy. They will try to destroy our reputation and heritage, "he said.

It also countered that it is impossible to "make a good sports management without good economic management."

However, Laporta announced his willingness to sit down with Rosell to clarify their different views on the management of the club and invited him to a meeting - public or private - to destensionar the situation.

"I don't have any problem in to do me with Rosell and to talk about our different opinions of why they say that we made it bad and why we believe that we made it well. I put it to disposition to look for a solution", he confirmed. (via SPORT)

Rosell and Guardiola escenificaron the serenity has recovered the institution

And the president was expected a reaction, especially since the private conversation that they maintained on Sunday.

This fueled rumors: that if Rosell is distanced of Guardiola that if Guardiola has put in a corner to the president...

Again a dark and unwelcome storm in paradise streamed Barcelona ...

However, after a slight tempesdad, just a few hours, there was calm. There was public staged on Tuesday night with a handshake after Guardiola, at a press conference, again speaking from the heart in hand and make it clear that he did not attack or defend anyone, that people only cared about , people who were struggling. So understood the president, denied that the greeting on the field when coach Guardiola was to meet him.

And the good vibes continued on the return trip. Rosell and Guardiola will definitely have moved on. They have spoken out and positioned without leaving the slightest doubt.

They could see, for example, chatting amiably to his arrival at El Prat, quite naturally, without drama or poses. Hence Rosell show smiling and relaxed. Both of them know that, above them, which are the two leading representatives of institutional and recreational area, is the entity. They know they are passing and that the club will continue to beat when they have no relation with him.

Understand also that energy can not be lost in `¿internal wars, and least at this historical moment being experienced by the club. They have done a clean slate. Each other. Guardiola confirmed in a press conference after the match against BATE Borisov in Minsk, "says it all. That is the best for the club, is a closed issue and that is most important. I've said enough already. "

President also expressed in the same line after the game: "this issue is history. We just want to talk about football because the present and the future looks very good. " And that's the image that staged yesterday at the airport of Barcelona on the 13 hours, when he landed the Pullmantur Air charter that the Barça moved from Minsk.

Incidentally, the output from the capital of Belarus was scheduled for 11 am (Catalan) but had advanced more than 30 minutes. However, due to logistical problems, time lost and won over in the end, broke as reflected in the program. It turns out that the back bar which was dragging the plane, a Boeing 747-400, to the track, brought from Spain, I could not stand in the right way. The commander of the ship informed the passage of events emphasizing the "limited infrastructure" of the local airport. Jumbo departed at 11.05 and landed at 13 hours. (via SPORT)
