Javier Aguirre ( Mallorca coach ) spoke about Barca’s defensive improvements, squad depth, Mallorca’s preparations for the match against Barca, Ronald Araujo’s injury, and Barca’s playing style in his pre-match press conference ahead of Barca vs Mallorca.
Aguirre on Barca’s Defensive improvements:
“Fc Barcelona have taken a step forward defensively, it’s difficult to play against them. Before you expected them to make a mistake in a corner or a mistake so that we could counterattack, but nowadays their concentration in defense is much better.”
Aguirre on Barca’s squad depth:
“Barca have players on the bench that many teams would like to have for the starting XI.”
Aguirre on Mallorca’s preparations for the match against Barca:
“We have shown our players a lot of videos of how Barca play, how well they play, how they make plays in an automatic way, how well they defend.”
Aguirre on Araujo:
“I really hope Ronald Araujo can make it to the World Cup. He is a sensational player, and he deserves the best. I always like the best players to be available.”
Aguirre on Barca’s style of play:
“We all know how good Barca is with the ball. Pep and Xavi learned from the same philosophy. Pep had Messi, who was a differential player. Now they have other players, but Barca is Barca and the Barcelona coach has to have the Barca DNA.”
That concluded Aguirre’s press conference.
