Luis Enrique during Friday's training session / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

Luis Enrique fielded questions from the press ahead of FC Barcelona’s encounter with Getafe on Saturday at Camp Nou.

The Catalans go into the game top of the league, eight points clear of second place searching for an eleventh straight win while the visitors linger one point above the drop zone in 16th spot. Here is a collection of the manager’s most significant comments:

Solely focused on the next game

“We are in the final stretch of the season against opponents who need points.”

“At the moment, we are only thinking about three points against Getafe, which will leave us closer to our objective of winning the league.”

The most difficult challenges lie ahead

“We know that we are where we wanted to be at the start of the season, but the most difficult part remains which is to confirm our performances with titles.”

 “We have a clear advantage but we cannot afford to slip up because losing two matches could see us punished.”

Confidence in the players

“I have complete confidence in what my players are doing. I will judge them for what they do on the field individually and collectively, and they are doing both of those things marvelously.”
