Ernesto Valverde: “We have been sharp, we have not given as many chances away as we did in the game on the other day and we have created danger in attack. I think we have played a very balanced game.” [via rac1]

“I’m happy with the goal of Griezmann because the scorers feed on the goals. It’s also good that all our forwards have scored.”

“The plans I have for De Jong are the same as for the rest: everything will depend on his performances. He can play in the middle but also as an interior. He is great player and we’ve made a great signing but in midfield we have many players.”

Messi continues with his recovery process and I do not know if he will be ready for the first game in La Liga.”

Aleñá went from less to more during the preseason. He started irregular but today he has played a good game. He has quality and a good shot. Therefore, Aleñá has to give us many things this season.”

Coutinho and Arthur? They will have to get in shape because they have arrived later and then they will surely fight for a position. There is a lot of competition but they were important last season.”

Carles Aleñá doesn’t want to see Neymar wearing white

Carles Aleñá: “It would hurt if Neymar goes to our eternal rival. We hope he comes here, it would be incredible. He is a spectacular player, one of the best in the world. But it’s not up to me.” [via md]

Antoine is a star, he has entered the dressing room in a great way. He is hardworking, humble. We are happy with his arrival, for the good vibes he transmits and the desire he has to work for the club.”

Lenglet does not fear competition

Clément Lenglet: “Griezmann a lot of quality and he gives the game more speed. I am very happy for him because he has scored his first goal with Barça and hopefully he continues like this.” [via sport]

Dembélé is a great player and this season he may play with a bit of anger to forget last season. If the injuries respect him, he can have a great year.”

Lenglet: “This issue of being a starter or not, we will see it later. Today we have played a great game. At Barça we play 60 games a year, I am prepared to fight.”
