It’s good that he’s going to be playing for us.”Suarezs is a very complete player, and has what matters most in football - goals.He then added that “we are very excited about the preseason. I’m really looking forward to it starting. There are only two days to go. I have had plenty of time to get ready, to start the preseason in right condition, and I think it’ll be a good year”. A lot of names have been mentioned as possible centre backsThe new-look squad is coming together, and Bartra commented that “a lot of names have been mentioned as possible centre backs since I’ve been in the first team. The right man hasn’t been found yet, but whoever does come in the end will be made welcome. We’ll help him as much as possible, because the league is starting and it won’t wait, he has to feel comfortable. And if nobody comes, then we’ll just have to get by with the people we have.”

He also mentioned Sunday’s World Cup Final between Germany and Argentina. Says Bartra: “It’ll be a toughly contested game, but I’ll be rooting for Argentina, because of my team-mates, Mascherano and Leo. It would be great for us to have two more world champions in the squad. So, I wish them all the best". It is an honour that a supporters club has been named after meHe concluded by saying that “this is a very happy day for me. It is an honour that a supporters club in Sant Jaume del Dolmenys has been named after me”.
