In an interview with local Catalan radio station RAC1, Sergi Roberto sat down to talk about current events surrounding the team, while also highlighting his own new situation in this year's team.
"I'm having a good season and feeling really good on the field," Roberto said.
The Reus-born product has become Luis Enrique's sixth most-used player and has accumulated heaps of minutes as a wing-back, a position he hasn't played in a few years.
"I feel very comfortable at wing-back because I can dribble more ... I never really planned to play there but I've been trying to do my best and it's gone well."
Efficiency and goals against
It hasn't been a normal start to the season for the team with regard to goals scored and goals against. For Sergi Roberto, the fact that the team isn't scoring "isn't worrying, because we're creating a lot of chances. We are just having some bad luck." Defensively, though, he believes there are "things that need to be polished up. We have to try to be stronger defensively."
Roberto also touched on the rash of injuries that has hit the team in the early going.
"Injuries are always bad news for a team," he said, while expressing confidence that the number of quality players the team has should help to turn things around.
Sergi Roberto was also asked about his possible transfer last summer and acknowledged that it was something that went through his head.
"When you think you're doing good work and the minutes don't come, you start to think about leaving."
But, in the end, he stayed, a decision that he believes was the correct one.
"It's turned out very well," he admitted.
