Ferran Torres spoke about his form, Alejandro Balde’s selection, his relationship with Luis Enrique, 17 Barca players in the World Cup, and Ronald Araujo’s participation in the World Cup in his pre-match press conference ahead of Spain vs Costa Rica.

Ferran Torres on his form:

“It is true that at Barcelona I have played less, I also started with an injury, but of course, the World Cup can be a place of return not just for me, but for many footballers.”

Ferran Torres on the participation of 17 Barca players in the World Cup:

“It is a source of pride because it means that we are doing things well. It is a sign of motivation to continue working and face this World Cup with a lot of enthusiasm.”

Ferran Torres on Ronald Araujo’s participation in the World Cup:

“If Araujo doesn’t play, Uruguay will miss an important player, but they are a very complete team. It would be a great joy for him to play in this World Cup.”

Ferran Torres on Alejandro Balde’s selection:

“He was on the shortlist because he has made a magnificent start to the season, he has known how to adapt to the right back. It’s a pity about Gayà, which motivates us to give him joy and now to make Balde feel at home.”

Ferran Torres on his relationship with Luis Enrique:

The coach and I know how to differentiate when we are family and when we are coach-player. We are doing very well.”
