Barça’s senior side will take to the pitch on Wednesday at 11.00 at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. The first 15 minutes of the training session will be open to the press. However, there will not be a post-training press conference.
Andrés Iniesta served up the first goal to Alexis with a magnificent pass, and later, he scored the 5-1. When asked about his contribution to Barça’s thumping 6-1 victory against Getafe, Iniesta said that “it’s good that we all contributed, but in the end the best thing is that the team won and that we played well.” On the brilliant form he’s been on in recent weeks, the midfielder explained that “there are seasons that I’ve played almost every match, I try to stay at the same level and I try to improve.”
Happy with the kick off time
For the first time this season Barça featured in a midday match. The Camp Nou faithful flocked to the stadium - 85,610 of them - and the players didn’t disappoint. Iniesta declared that it was “a great morning for football, it was spectacular.”
Iniesta’s fantastic performance was capped off by goal, but after the match the midfielder noted that “my happiness isn’t dependent on if I score or not; rather, it’s knowing that I did a good job.” Finally, the third best player in the world talked about the goal Barça conceded in the second half: “conceding a goal shouldn’t worry us. Our opponents also play, they create their chances and they can score.”
Tello finds the back of the net
CrisitanTello only needed a few minutes to leave his mark on this afternoon’s match. The Catalan forward noted, “it was a great game, I’m very pleased that I got to participate and that I was able to score.” When asked to rate his performance, Tello said, “I work hard in order to improve and I try to do as much as possible when I play. I scored with my first shot and I’m happy.”
Tello also talked about this afternoon's unusual kick off time, “we’re used to playing at night, but personally I really liked playing at noon.” In addition, he said, “the team wasn’t affected by the schedule,” and he noted “many of us have played at noon when we were playing for the youth teams.”
