Ernesto Valverde quotes

Sep 18 2017

He is going to be out for some time. It's a shame because he was just getting into the dynamic of the team. Let's hope he is not out for too long.feedback

Sep 16 2017

We showed the perseverance to keep pushing forward and to turn the game around.feedback

Sep 16 2017

Scoring is important for them [Suarez and Paulinho] as individuals, it gives them both confidence.feedback

Sep 16 2017

It also shows that the squad has depth and that we have a lot of players who can contribute - and that includes players that aren't here.feedback

Sep 16 2017

Whether it is one player or another, what serves us well is to know that we are capable of reacting.feedback

Sep 16 2017

[All three of the subs] can get forward and they have goals in them. We had not rotated much from Tuesday against Juventus. Those who came on gave us freshness and end product.feedback

Sep 16 2017

We struggled because to be honest we weren't playing that quickly, although the pitch didn't help either. It was dry and the ball didn't run too much.feedback

Sep 16 2017

But regardless of that, we tried to turn things around. The opposition put us under pressure but this comeback reinforces our belief that we are indeed capable of reacting to difficulty.feedback

Sep 16 2017

There will be many times when you make a change and nothing happens or what you were thinking doesn't happen.feedback

Sep 15 2017

We are relaxed, in the same way we were a month ago. Well, relaxed as you can be in the world of football.feedback

Sep 15 2017

Football can change very quickly. We have to extend the form we are in at the moment, at least for the next few days.feedback

Sep 15 2017

I think what happens with the rest of the teams doesn't really concern us that much, especially at the start of the season. What we are worried about is consolidating our form and picking up points.feedback

Sep 15 2017

We've got nine points at stake. This kind of game, when you're away from home and you know your opponent has that extra motivation to pick up the three points, you cannot look back. You must keep looking forward.feedback

Sep 11 2017

You'll find out [if he will start] tomorrow. If I play him it's because I think he's ready. But he's a player, like everyone, who is training well and fitting in better each day. He could start any game.feedback

Sep 11 2017

If he doesn't start tomorrow, he will start soon. Perhaps if he arrived earlier we'd be able to do more, but he's not had long to blend in.feedback

Sep 09 2017

You never know what can happen. It doesn't mean anything, but being ahead is always good.feedback

Sep 08 2017

The last game against Alaves I was thinking about putting him in the squad. I decided to rest him for another week. Let's see. He had two intense games for Uruguay. We've got another game coming up. We need to think about it.feedback

Aug 26 2017

It was a very tricky game, difficult because they closed the game down with very little space. They sat very deep and it was difficult to find spaces.feedback

Aug 26 2017

We hope to have a better team on the 31st. We hope that, when the last day of the market comes, we have a better and more competitive team. That's clear.feedback

Aug 26 2017

He can play on the left or the right, or even through the middle. He is quick and he is technically good. We hope he's going to add a lot to the team. We're really excited to have him. We have a lot of hope deposited in him.feedback

Aug 25 2017

He is training with us and seems to be the same as ever. I do not think there is any problem at all.feedback

Aug 25 2017

That is incredible. We are at a time when transfer fees are booming but he is a top quality player.feedback

Aug 25 2017

Borussia Dortmund have been able to see in person just what a quality player he is and let's hope he lives up to every expectation here and brings us lots of joy. The difference is basic. Dembele is with us, Neymar is not. So why compare the two? One of them isn't with us, so that is not relevant. Neymar was wonderful for us but he is no longer here so he is no use to us, is he?feedback

Aug 25 2017

Last year at Dortmund you could already see he was a good player. Barcelona were also looking at him back then.feedback

Aug 25 2017

Dembélé is a player who is very quick and technical. He can play on both sides of the field, and he gives us depth, which is something that we need.feedback

Aug 20 2017

We have to look for a formula to be better and find other ways that allow us to win the games.feedback

Aug 20 2017

But the loss of Neymar was something sudden and surprising. It makes us change our plans a bit. We must work in another direction to rearm ourselves. We have to step forward and not look back.feedback

Aug 20 2017

I would like the transfer window to close as soon as possible and I would like to have a window in accordance with the requirements we have. I cannot say more than that.feedback

Aug 20 2017

From our club we give our full support to the victims, . It was a very tough day for everyone.feedback

Aug 19 2017

We have to make him feel at ease so he can play his game and make his team shine. He needs a compact group around him.feedback

Aug 18 2017

We would like to show our solidarity with the victims and their families in these difficult times. We are here to help in any way we can.feedback

Aug 17 2017

We won't admit that our opponent was superior to us, but we can say they made fewer mistakes. Madrid, Atletico, Bayern... none of them are better than us. Why?feedback

Aug 17 2017

A lot is being said about Paulinho before he's even got here. He's a great player and a very important one for Brazil. He is strong physically and adds a new dimension to the team. He's a good acquisition and he will give us versatility.feedback

Aug 17 2017

It is a knock on his knee but we will have to wait to assess the situation.feedback

Aug 16 2017

They caught us in a one-versus-one situation and then scored one wonder goal and then another to make it 3-1. It was an even game and they had a strong central midfield, which made playing inside difficult.feedback

Aug 16 2017

We have a very unfavourable aggregate score and the opponent is the favourite. Now we have to play a second leg and things are never over after one defeat, or after one victory.feedback

Aug 13 2017

I am not interested in looking back. We have to look at the players we have and solve problems that can arise to win matches. At the moment, I have some players in the team who are performing well for me. We will see if anything develops. We know that this club, like every other club, moves accordingly to the market. I am focusing mainly on what I have, the rest is up in the air.feedback

Aug 13 2017

Their second goal really hurt us. We congratulate them and we will try to improve for the next match.feedback

Aug 13 2017

I don't have the feeling that we were as far away from [Real Madrid] as the scoreboard indicates. They scored three goals, but this was a game in which we played well and had chances. When you lose you want another game to come along quickly to try to put things right. We are a little bit taken aback, but we have time to recover our energy.feedback

Aug 13 2017

They caught us in a one-versus-one situation and then scored one wonder goal and then another to make it 3-1. It was an even game and they had a strong central midfield, which made playing inside difficult. When you lose you want another game to come along quickly to try to put things right. We are a little bit taken aback, but we have time to recover our energy.feedback

Aug 13 2017

Reaching their danger zones isn't all that matters, as you also need to hit the target. I don't believe that we're lacking goalscoring ability, but they were more clinical.feedback

Aug 12 2017

The names that surface are not anyone's stated requests. We will have to give our best to win, they will be two tough matches. We are focused on the game and whatever the talk is, we are only thinking about that.feedback

Aug 12 2017

We know how good Madrid are and they have a strong squad. They have just won the European Super Cup playing well but we just have to focus on ourselves.feedback

Aug 12 2017

I have no knowledge of what players could come or of what goes on at other teams. I don't worry about that as I have enough on my plate.feedback

Aug 12 2017

The friendly game we played during the tour is a reference point but that's all. Now it's different, there is a title at stake and they want to win it as well.feedback

Aug 12 2017

I don't have any proof of anything. Lots of players' names are mentioned for lots of clubs and it will be like that until August 31. For the moment there is nothing, or at least not that I've been informed of. I have a feeling that Paulinho will not be playing tomorrow night [against Madrid]. We will have to give our best to win, they will be two tough matches. We are focused on the game and whatever the talk is, we are only thinking about that.feedback

Aug 07 2017

It's an honour to welcome Chapecoense.feedback

Aug 07 2017

We of course wish him all the best and whilst we would have preferred to keep him here we must now look ahead and focus on the players in the squad and those who could join us.feedback

Aug 07 2017

One door is closed but many more will open so we must look to that and we are excited for what the future holds.feedback

Aug 07 2017

We must not look back but instead look ahead and focus on the future as that is what we must do.feedback

Aug 07 2017

In Tarragona, he played 20 minutes and in the Gamper, he played in the first half. He has flow, speed and an attitude we can make use of. He left the field early, but I did not want to play him more than 45 minutes because he has not trained a lot, due to injuries.feedback

Jul 30 2017

I expect the best from Messi and all the players but he is extraordinary and we are aiming to win all the titles this season.feedback

Jul 30 2017

We're satisfied in all ways, by the game and all the people who came to support our team. We knew Barca had international support but you have to live it. You have to come here and realize the atmosphere at the game, from the training session yesterday. We're very happy.feedback

Jul 29 2017

It's normal that in the first matches of the year, we change a lot of players more than anything because we still have to regulate their effort. We haven't had many training sessions and we don't want to run the risk of injuries. But it's also true that the game against Real Madrid will be a different game. It's possible some players might see some more minutes, but we're going to wait and see.feedback

Jul 27 2017

In the first half, there was a very high pace with many chances and in the second we tried to control the game.feedback

Jul 27 2017

The news on Neymar is he's very happy to talk with some of his friends from Manchester, . There's no more news. He's with us.feedback

Jul 23 2017

We wanted to try to take the initiative, try to be together, always intending to dominate the game knowing the difficulty of the opponent.feedback

Jul 23 2017

We are also in a phase where we have to add minutes and take confidence. This victory is very positive.feedback

Jul 22 2017

I'm here to help in what I can. I'm also here to learn, to make progress as a coach. I have to adapt to the players, to their game, but they also have to adapt to me.feedback

Jul 21 2017

If anything happens in the future, we'll see in the future. But for now, there's no need to worry about it.feedback

Jul 17 2017

For me the most important thing is trying to get to know the players who are here.feedback

Jul 17 2017

Obviously we've had discussions but to ask for 'this player', no. For me, the best signings are those who are in my team. The best signings are already here.feedback

Jul 17 2017

It's very early to be worrying about that. The important thing is that Iniesta is happy in the team, then we'll see what the season brings. He's a player of a level that's difficult to find elsewhere.feedback

Jul 17 2017

Of course Messi is a unique player and he will have a role whereby he can play in any position and play well. Regardless of how we start the game, he will end up in defined positions. It's a feeling of relief [to coach him]. When you're sitting on the opposition bench you see that you're lacking the players it takes to stop him.feedback

Jul 17 2017

It's difficult to improve what's in the team. There are always a lot of names and the summer is long, but for me the important thing is to get the best form out of my players.feedback

Jul 17 2017

If it happens, then that would be great. The club is working hard for the squad to have the best players. But my idea is always to work with the players in my squad.feedback

Jul 17 2017

I have almost the best squad possible anyway. It's very difficult to make it better, because of the high standard of players that we have.feedback

Jul 17 2017

We're not closed to any options until the last day but I think that's the same for any club.feedback

Jul 17 2017

They are my players and I consider them in my plans.feedback

Jun 03 2017

I just want to the first day to come and to get the tracksuit on and start coaching. I know it is an important step, I know the importance that it has because with every step I take, I realise more and I am thinking about it as yet another challenge that I am up for obviously. It's important because it can affect what can be your idea. You have to try to get it right so that the whole group feels comfortable.feedback

Jun 03 2017

The system? I have adapted myself a little to what I have had in each team.feedback

Jun 01 2017

Whenever it looks like he has reached his peak the next day he surprises you even more. I hope I can help him in any way possible and that I'll enjoy the experience.feedback

Jun 01 2017

We are going to try and win as many trophies as we can.feedback

Jun 01 2017

It's a tough start, but even better. We start the season by playing for a trophy and that makes this challenge ahead even greater. I don't know what Neymar's privileges are. I have to adapt to the style and the play of the club. I know the style passes by having a great collective game and great handling of the ball in the midfield. Barca have a tradition of playing 4-3-3, also 3-4-3 more recently, but I don't consider that so important. Fomations have to be moved, the idea is to have control of the ball.feedback

Jun 01 2017

I hope to enjoy his play and my idea is to help him to get even better, if there is anything to improve on... I want to enjoy the experience of being with him.feedback

Jun 01 2017

It's a unique experience to be able to coach Messi. He is the best player I have ever seen on a football pitch. I know it seems like he is at his peak, but every day he surprises you and the next day he is even better.feedback

May 30 2017

At the moment, I have some players in the team who are performing well for me. We will see if anything develops. We know that this club, like every other club, moves accordingly to the market. I am focusing mainly on what I have, the rest is up in the air.feedback

May 30 2017

I am not interested in looking back. We have to look at the players we have and solve problems that can arise to win matches.feedback

May 30 2017

He has been a great player for Barca, but he is no longer here and we have to look forward. I am not interested in looking back. We have to look at the players we have and solve problems that can arise to win matches. He left the field early, but I did not want to play him more than 45 minutes because he has not trained a lot, due to injuries.feedback

May 24 2017

Four years later, I've realised that I've spent double the time I thought I would. It's a hard day for me [to leave], all that I've experienced here is incredible.feedback

May 24 2017

This is not the first time I've had offers from big clubs, our president knows that. When I first came here I thought I would only remain for two years.feedback

May 24 2017

But the decision to leave was taken a while back. I feel my work here is done. I think it's good to have movement in football, for someone new to come along and have fresh ideas.feedback

May 06 2017

The game is a reflection of the coach's idea. I want a team spirit that infects the people at the club, a style of play that is intense, a team that carry the weight of their game and an ambition in accordance with what's asked of us. There are many things that I already see in this team. The formation sets the base for your idea, and you have to make sure the players are comfortable so that you can achieve what you want to achieve.feedback

Mar 17 2017

I have never been afraid to bring up players from the youth teams, if they are good enough. In my first spell we brought up a lot of players for economic reasons and we did not sign anyone for two years!feedback

Mar 03 2017

Pretty good, I'm very relaxed. I say this because I've seen my team doing well [against Sevilla]. I was focused on the bench. We are all used to this kind of thing, [speculation] to give you a job or to take it away from you. Nothing more. This is not the first time this happens to me when I was in another team. It's one circumstance. I don't want to be rude, it's just that the existence of reports doesn't mean we have to comment on them. I understand them, but that's it.feedback

Jan 06 2017

The biggest challenge for me will be to coach a great team full of great players.feedback

Jan 06 2017

I'd like the fans to keep enjoying things the way they have in recent years. In the last several seasons, they've been able to enjoy great players and coaches.feedback

Jan 06 2017

My idea is to keep it that way, and to have them enjoy those things even more and to have them be proud of the team.feedback

Jan 06 2017

We want the fans to see a team that is committed on the field and, above all, committed to its supporters.feedback
