Andres Iniesta: 'There are no minor titles for us'

Andres Iniesta: 'There are no minor titles for us'

Speaking in his hometown of Fuentealbilla, in the Spanish region of Castilla-La Mancha, the Barça captain vowed the team would "fight for it all" once again this season

Here are the highlights of what Andrés Iniesta had to say about the upcoming season.

On the team's motivations coming into the new season:

"I think what's always motivated us is the excitement, the excitement to get back to work, to have fun. And that's what it is like every season. To begin with a clean slate, to begin aiming for new heights, to work hard. It's a new stage with the new coach, but we have the same outlook as always.

On the team's new manager, Ernesto Valverde:

"We need to do things the right way. There's no question that when you do things the right way, you are more likely to be successful. And so, we need to help out, to help the coach, who will show us his vision, and how he does things. I think he's extremely capable of doing that, and from there we will be aiming for championships, just like we do every year.

On the return of Gerard Deulofeu:

"He's a player who is been away from the club for a while, he's really grown at other clubs, and he still really young. He has a bright future ahead of him. And above all he's good enough to continue growing. I think he will be in the best place possible with the best players to allow him to do that."

On this season's priorities, as far as titles go:

"We are going to fight for it all. There are no minor titles for us. Some of them are considered to be the most important, which are the ones we have won a lot of times. But as I said, the season begins with a clean slate and, as always, we will go all out."
