HARRISON, NEW JERSEY — First-year manager Ernesto Valverde and midfielder Sergio Busquets appeared before the media Friday at Red Bull Arena. Here are the highlights of what they had to say.
On his debut:
“I’m taking it in stride, and I’m excited.”
“I really want to see my team in competition, even if it is not official.”
On his plans for the game:
“We’ll dole out minutes to the players. Certainly, not all 23 who are here will be able to play. We’ll make a lot of substitutions at the half so everyone can get in shape and after that we’ll increase the workload.”
