The Barcelona coach says before playing against Villarreal that he is very satisfied with the team’s performance and that he expects a turning point this Saturday.


Game against Villarreal will be important

Yes, it is a more offensive team than Espanyol and Benfica. They push up in their field, with good technique and they don’t give the ball away. A great team and a great coach. It will be complicated and it is a field in which we suffer. I’m happy with the pressure, we won a lot of duels, with the pressure after loss, we haven’t conceded, but in attack we have to dare more. The player profiles are very young, it happened to me. There is a goal, because I see it in training. It does not serve us to be only correct, we must go for the ’10’ for excellence. I want to surround myself with people I trust, loyal and faithful. And that would be Ricard Pruna, who for me is the best doctor Barcelona has ever had. It is close to coming. He should never have left the club, he is number one.


The progress of Ansu Fati

He has good feelings, he has started to run, but you have to be careful. We’ll see if we take the risk as we did with Dembele, who was not well and made a titanic effort to be with us the other day. If I could be in Munich it would be spectacular. I had a one-on-one talk with him and made it clear to him how important he was to me not only for this season but for the future. It already depends on him. Hopefully he can renew because he is a footballer capable of making a difference in the coming years. I talk to him, I don’t know his surroundings, it depends on him.
