Denis Suárez: 'Whoever has more of the ball will have a better chance of winning'
The midfielder fondly remembers his year on loan at Sevilla and weighs up the upcoming clash against the Andalusians
FC Barcelona are set to take on in-form Sevilla at the Sánchez Pizjuán on Sunday, and midfielder Denis Suárez knows all about playing at the famous stadium.
The 23-year-old spent a year out on loan at Sevilla and remembers his time fondly, as it was a vital part of his development.
“I still have friends there who I spent a great year with, and therefore it will be special to go back there,” he told Barça TV.
Talking of the summer switch in management, Denis acknowledges that Sevilla “have changed a lot” under Jorge Sampaoli.
“It is very different to the team of Emery; with Sampaoli, they go out strong in the first 10-15 minutes,” he said.
“It is one of the toughest grounds,” Denis acknowledged but the key lies in dominating the ball, the midfielder believes: “Both teams love to have possession and control the game. Whoever bosses the ball will have more of a chance to win.”
Lastly, the Galician commented on his start to life back at Barça, saying that “it is always where I have wanted to be, I am enjoying it a lot and I hope to be here for many years”.
