Braithwaite: 'I want to face Leganés, I know how they play'
The Danish striker has spoken in the lead up to the game against his former team, adding that 'scoring my first goal with Barça was incredible'
Barça-Leganés will be a special game, since after more than 100 days the first team will play again at Camp Nou. However, it will be even more special for Martin Braithwaite, who will face his former team. The Danish striker has spoken about the reunion and also his first goal as a Barça player in Son Moix:
First Barça goal
"Scoring my first goal with Barça was incredible, it is something I had dreamed of and had worked hard for. I am very happy."
“Playing again was a special feeling. Without fans it is very different but I felt good.”
“I know them, I know how they play. We want to win the league so we must win to keep adding points."
“I have spoken with Kevin Rodrigues, he is a great friend of mine. I really want to play against them on Tuesday.”
Best moments with his former team
"I remember a number of great moments with Leganés, but when we won against Sevilla at their ground, that was a special game."
Matches against Barça
“The first game was difficult for Barça, we went ahead and defended well but it was not enough to achieve the win. In the second match they were much more superior and did much better than us.”
"Aguirre is a great coach, I have a lot of respect for him. He came and knew how he wanted to play, what he wanted to do and gave confidence to the players. But the most important thing for me is the human aspect, he understands that footballers are people ahead of players.”
Playing for a team at the top of the league
“It is different. You play with pressure to win the league too, but I prefer to play to win titles than having to stay up."
