Cesc: "If we begin to doubt Messi, I don’t know how they see the rest of us"

Cesc Fabregas came out in defense of Leo Messi and believes that he’ll soon get back to scoring goals as usual: "He’s very humble, always gives everything for the team, and loves the Club. There’s nothing more to say".



Messi hasn’t scored for 3 games. Viktoria Pilsen, Sevilla, and Granada have escaped without conceding a Messi goal, which has led to the first arguments about his form. For Cesc, there’s no debate: "I haven’t heard any arguments. He’s my age. If you see the progress he’s made, I don’t think I’ll ever see it again. He’s won everything, except the World Cup. He scores goals every game, makes them, always plays ... he’s a fabulous player, physically and mentally. If there are doubts about Messi, I don’t know how they see the rest of us. I’ve never played with a player like him, either at youth level or professionally. He’s humble, never hides, always gives everything for the team, and loves the Club. There’s nothing more to say" he added.

On the same lines, when asked about the Golden Ball trophy, he said: "50 of us have been nominated for this award. Nobody will remember the 5th to the 50th. I’d put my hand in the fire that Messi will win it. It has a special meaning for him, but the next day he’ll want to score more goals and that's the most important" he said. Regarding his own presence on the list, and the absence of Pedro, Valdes, or Busquets, Cesc said that "it’s a pretty strange list. How can I be on it, when I didn’t play for practically the whole of last season?".

Regarding the game at Granada (1-0 win), in which he started after his injury, he recognised that it wasn’t Barça’s best game. "The movement of the ball was too slow, we didn’t change the direction of play enough, we had too many players down the right, and we didn’t have as much ball possession as usual, but we did control the whole match" he stressed, whilst praising Barca’s current defensive form.
On his own performance, he acknowledged that he’s still recovering his best form, and feels more comfortable playing in attack than deeper in midfield. "I can play in both positions. As a midfielder I have to improve a lot of things. Tactically I have plenty of room for improvement" he said.

One of the topics of most interest in the press conference was the controversy that arose with Frederic Kanoute at the end of the match against Sevilla, which ended with Kanoute being sent off. "I've always been calm about it. I know what I said to him. Whoever leaked the story that I used racist words has got what they wanted, because it’s been published worldwide. I spoke with Kanoute and we said what we had to say. I’m not a Saint, just like any football player, but I didn’t say anything racist, and nobody is denying that. We all know how football works" he said. (via FCBarcelona.cat)

Estiarte: "Being in Barça is a gift"

Estiarte was yesterday in Granada, where he returned to see from a vantage point the path of this historic team.


Next to the injured player's box, with Pep Guardiola when he doubts, with Sandro Rosell when the script demands it, Manel Estiarte faces his fourth season at Barça, assisting those looking for a helping hand and being a bridge between your computer and the policy. That kid who called the Maradona of the water is now a little older but also much more skilled than the club makes available to all their wisdom and experience. Today is 50 years.

What do they know?

The worst is that my youngest daughter, Rebecca, turned 18 two weeks ago. It's eldest daughter, but small. And now this! The cost two birthdays at once but I can not complain. Doing so would be to slap happiness because I look at me and see my wife, my daughters, my brother, my nephews, good friends in Manresa, Barcelona and Italy ...

Of the 50, half were spent in the water. What do you see when you close your eyes?

I started at 13 with water polo and left him to 39-40. The first thing you see when you close your eyes is the gold in the Olympic Games in Atlanta. And not when we were on the podium but hugs with my peers in the water with my brothers ... For a few moments extraordinary.

Was its peak?

In a process started in Manresa. I have in mind when going to the old and sad Manresa pool, which seemed the most beautiful place in the world, to see my brother who was a youth team captain in a flight of steps in which there was little family and I had the impression that they were full of people and chaired by a huge score even one of those on board the number that fits inside the box. I did not know Barcelona or the Spanish or the world. Nothing. Only my parents pressed to hurry to avoid being late to the party.

There are sweet moments but his life has not been a bed of roses ...

Sure. This is also life. The death of my sister Rosa was the saddest, most bitter, never lived. Nothing compares with the way that Rosa left us. Nothing. Always bring her inside me. Life takes but also gives, as a woman I've been married 23 years, or my daughters, Rebecca and Nicole.

And after so long in the water, the ship arrives.

This I now live is a gift. Water polo gave me everything when I only wanted to play like my brother, my hero, he loved more than I do this sport. It still is the team doctor. Fate made after retiring, after resting for 8 years, came Barça. A splendid gift to working with my friend Pep, the team can enjoy historical, unrepeatable. We've been three years plus. If another day, thanks. If two, the better. Therefore, I must thank three times.

Three?

A Pep and all the staff for having me, the club for another contract and another to accept the template. This was the hardest thing of all because I came from another world, another sport, and could have given me back but did not. Sometimes I failed and I apologize, others have successful and I am proud.

And when you close your eyes and think of the club you see?

I will not speak today because I want to protect the team's confidence to me. From yesterday I can not because everything is very recent. I remember the hugs after any final Pep's nerves before games, with hugs and encouragement. I see everyday, the most recent.

I say he can not taste so many titles, such glory ...

Need a period of time that allows us to see for some distance. Enjoy more when we remember. Now we tasted not a hundred percent. You go day to day because after a triumph, a success, a win, and think about what's coming in the next game next season. Today and tomorrow, but we think we know what we live is special. (via SPORT)

[Liga BBVA; Week10] Granada CF 0 - 1 FC Barcelona

Barça neat Granada by a single goal and for 24 hours at least, are back on top of La Liga. Xavi got the goal with a fantastic free kick while Pedro was taken off injured and Jaime and Benítez were sent off for Granada.


Following the disappointment of Saturday’s draw, the team were back to winning ways at Granada tonight, as they put in a practical performance at the Los Carmenes Stadium. In the first half, with Isaac Cuenca making his debut out on the left wing, Barça played some fast and attractive football which culminated in Xavi’s superbly taken free kick.

Granada suffered two red cards after the break –one at the start and one at the end of the half and Barça duly ran out winners –though perhaps without their usual verve and sparkle – to take over the top spot in the league ahead of Wednesday’s games.

Just as Seville had done on Saturday, Granada closed up shop from the start and handed over the initiative to Barça, hoping to catch the champions on the break, whilst Barça put together plenty of passing movements in front of the Granada box, looking for spaces in their defensive wall. Messi and Cuenca both had shots wide in the early encounters.

Despite Barça’s domination, Granada were holding out and reached the half hour mark with their goal intact, but soon after Xavi was fouled on the edge of the box and he got up to put away a brilliant free kick past the helpless Granada keeper. Magnificent!

Things got tougher for the hosts when Jaime was shown a second yellow for dangerous play. Barça were also to lose a player at the same time, as Pedro twisted his ankle in a nasty way and was replaced by David Villa. With the extra man, Barça pushed for the second and it looked as if Messi had got it, only to see his effort spectacularly cleared off the line by Mainz.

However, after that chance the pace of the game dropped notably as both teams seemed happy with the 0-1 result and once Granada were reduced to nine men after Benitez was also shown a second yellow, there was never going to be a way back for the hosts and Xavi’s goal proved enough for Barça to come back home with the three points.
