He also pointed out that the Bavarians will not have Lewandowski in their ranks, because he now wears the blue and garnet.
“That’s the positive part, that Lewy is with us. It will be a special game for him. The last three or four games against them have been difficult but we have strengthened and we are a different team. We are ready to go head to head against Bayern,” he said.
Jordi Cruyff also highlighted the potential of Inter Milan, who too will be in the wrestle for the top two.
“Italian teams are always difficult and Inter have strengthened well, Lukaku is back and they also have Lautaro”.
The Barça technical secretary didn’t dismiss Viktoria Pilsen either and acknowledged their quality.
“They tend to be physical, with a very high tempo, who play very direct and you have to respect them and win the games against them”, he commented.
Cruyff also assessed Barça’s market and transfers this summer.
“We have managed to strengthen in all areas and we are trying to balance the team. I don’t know if we will get everything we want but the team is ready to compete,” he concluded.
