Luis Enrique: I will sleep well because it’s not my first Clasico game

luis-enriqueLuis Enrique appeared in the press con­fer­ence room to talk on the next league game against Real Madrid. He answered ques­tions relat­ing to the Saturday’s game from the press men.

On Ini­es­ta

It’s a great news to hear that Andre Ini­es­ta is back from injury. He ‘s more than a cap­tain to us as a team. He’s one play­er that still helps in the tra­di­tion­al Barcelona style of play. Even though I depend on all my play­ers, he’s one of the play­ers the whole team looks up to when play­ing.

On the game

The game is very impor­tant for us, we have to win it. This means beat­ing our direct rival in the league. Of course, they also have the same motive as us. But being at home gives us more advan­tage over them. It is also vital to play while we watch our emo­tions, not just for my play­ers but also for me.

On Play­ers

With all my play­ers ready for the game except Math­ieu, it only gives me more options on the staffing which is good for us. Our start­ing eleven will now depend on cer­tain fac­tors.

On Real Madrid style of play

I see Real Madrid play­ing the way they’ve always played in their pre­vi­ous games. They always don’t have need to con­trol the ball but are very quick to attack with very few touch­es of the ball. They’ll be pre­cise with the ball and very effec­tive in front of the goal post. On the oth­er hand, we will try to play pos­ses­sive foot­ball have bet­ter con­trol of the ball and cre­ate chances to win the game.

On vic­to­ry of the game

Don’t wor­ry, I will sleep well ecause this is not my first El Cla­si­co. I’ve always slept well, but of course in the game there are high expec­ta­tions. Know­ing that there are over 100,000 fans in Camp Nou and mil­lions of fans all over the world who look up to our vic­to­ry.
