Team of the Week (selected by Albert Rogé)
Kluivert had an interview with the official media, and here we show part of them:
Cases like these should be taken care of. But luckily, Ansu is a boy with very clear things and with his feet on the ground. I have talked to him many times and he is fully aware of his situation. Therefore, our job is to see that he does not deviate from the path and that he knows his role at all times. But Ansu is a player who knows what he wants, what he can do and will get used to playing more and more games in the first team.
How to convince the talents to stay in Barcelona?
The training we have at Barça is one of the best in the world. And the players who are here have the dream of playing in the first team of FC Barcelona. Our job is to explain that money is not everything in these ages, but the career and knowing where you come from. And from there, if they are of sufficient quality, and they work hard and work hard they can have their chance to get on the first team. We have to prove that this possibility exists. And once you prove you’re worth it, the money will come later.
On Barça DNA?
It’s essential (to have all teams maintain the same game philosophy). When players change stage and team it is important that they continue with the same game philosophy. It is evident that, as they grow, they develop their best facets and improve their talent, but within the same way of playing. Furthermore, the Cruyff philosophy, the values of the Club must be respected and we are here to protect all this. We have one of the best soccer schools and, therefore, we all have to go in the same line with the coaches and players.
Advice to young players?
It is essential that young people think that not only because they are in Barça everything is done. It is very important to work hard, pursue your dream, compete and learn from your coaches. Talent is very important, but it is not everything, but you have to work every day and demand yourself to the fullest. And if all goes well, the opportunity will come to play in the first team. This is our job.
