Eric Garcia’s press conference ahead of Barca vs Bayern

Eric on the match against Bayern:

“We have to keep going and we have to take advantage of the opportunities. It is complicated because we don’t depend on ourselves, we’ll know where we are before the game, and we’ll definitely try to win tomorrow.”

Eric on the criticism of his performance:

“It is true that I am responsible for the penalty against Real Madrid and the mistake against Inter as well. The criticism is constructive, I am 21 years old and I am trying to improve. I don’t pay attention to the hurtful comments.”

Eric on the stacked schedule:

“When you play a lot with a game every 3 days, you only have time to think about the next game, nothing else.”

Eric on taking revenge against Bayern:

“Tomorrow we will look forward to taking revenge for what happened in Munich.”

Eric on the competition:

“All defenders are different, and here we all complement each other. At Barcelona, there are the best center-backs in the world so they make you better. You can improve a lot of things by making use of each one of them.”

Eric on Kounde:

“Koundé has already shown in Sevilla that he is a complete defender, he is fast and it is great to have him with us, also he is a young man, I think he has a great future ahead of him.”

Eric on Balde:

“Balde is fast like a plane and I think it is very good to have the competition he has in the team with a player like Alba who is one of the best players in the world in his position. Also with Marcos Alonso who is also a very experienced player.”

That concluded Eric’s pre-match press conference ahead of the clash against Bayern.
