The manager says that the Gamper Trophy is “always special” and believes that this is the best squad he has had since joining Barça
With the new season fast-approaching, Luis Enrique spoke before the press on Tuesday to discuss a number of topics surrounding the club.
The Joan Gamper Trophy will take place on Wednesday where the new squad will be presented, and the manager expressed his delight at the players brought in. Here is the pick of what Luis Enrique told the press:
“On paper, this is the best squad that I have had in my three years at Barça.”
“If we find a player that will improve us, we will do it. If not, we continue with this squad, which is already great.”
The new players
“We have a squad that has been strengthened brilliantly.”
“They have arrived at a very high physical level, the first days have been very positive.”
We have many midfielders, because many of them can adapt to different positions. This versatility gives us many options.
“That position is very well covered, without doubt.”
"Football does not understand the past. Credit must be renewed daily, and the only way I can transmit that to the Barça fans is by coaching the team."
