The coach of FC Barcelona, ​​ Ernesto Valverde made it clear on Tuesday that the intention of his team is "to win everything" and has stated that they are " well placed "to assault the treble achieved in 2015 and 2009, although this will require eliminating AS Roma in the quarterfinals of the 'Champions', in a cross that is balanced and equal.

” We have a lot of hope for winning something, this year we still have not won anything. Our intention is to be able to win as much as we can and we are well placed we will see what the field dictates later. , said at a press conference.

In this regard, denied that they see inferior to Roma for this match that starts on Wednesday at the Camp Nou. “What interests us is what we have to win because we have not won anything, not what we have to lose because we have not won anything, and about the contempt for Rome, it has not left us or the costumes because we respect them to the maximum, “he said.

In fact, he's not surprised to see Roma in this phase. “Seeing the matches he played in the group stage was not so much surprise, he played very well, or watching the Italian League is not so much surprise that he is in the quarterfinals . They play very well in the attack, they defend with a lot of solidarity and when they are armed it is difficult to pass them, we will have a lot of difficulty to pass, “he predicted.

Thus, he does not consider that with a good game at Camp Nou they will have enough to pass. “I doubt very much that at this point the playoffs will be solved in the first match because of the level of the contenders because they are very pressure games.” It would be important not to fit in and win the match, but not enough game but you have to make two good games to pass. ”

” No, of course not, being a favorite has no value, only for betting houses. “The moment you start to roll the ball, favoritism can We respect Roma a lot, it's a great rival, and they give us favorites because it does not make you win “, he relativized about that role of favorites that are given and that they reject. 19659003] It is also focused on correcting defensive errors in the draw in the League against Sevilla (2-2). “I'm not very happy with the defensive organization of the gold day in Seville, but what is taking us to be with possibilities in all competitions is the talent we have, we are an attacking team, but we are not interested in matches round trip, but only the first leg, “he explained.

Nor was he too worried about the decision that Andrés Iniesta must make about continuing or leaving the club. “At the moment I have not thought of any strategy because I do not have to have any, Andres has been here for many years and knows what he wants, it is a personal decision, but we are very happy to have him”, he said.

“I have not followed the statements but I know and I understand that he is happy here, and we are happy with him .We hope that the negotiation will come to fruition for what it means for the team in the field and outside. He is happy with us, “commented Samuel Umtiti, who did not clarify at the international break if his intention was to remain at Barça or accept any other offer.

As to whether he could count on Sergio Busquets before the Rome let glimpse that yes. “He did an important part of the training and we think he's going to do it today and he'll be fine, I can not say but it's important for us, as it is for the national team, and we hope to be able to count on him tomorrow.”
