There’s an upcoming Barcelona vs Leganes match and fans are definitely excited about it. Here’s Barca boss Quique Setien to tell you all about the latest team news ahead of the match!
“There will be changes and there will also be changes as the games go. I do not want the players to be exhausted. It will be necessary to see how they recover, especially, thinking of avoiding injuries and arriving fresh,” said Setien, during the presser.
Many are anticipating Luis Suarez and Leo Messi to play again after their success in the previous match. However, Setien might be making some changes to the formation this time.
“I haven’t decided yet on my line up. He’s one option. We’ll see. I have to talk to him. It’s true he can start but he could also start on the bench. We have to go carefully when one has suffered a lot of injuries it’s easy get some physical problems. We need all the players ready and we have to go step by step.”
He also talked about Messi scoring – that some attention should be taken away from that. Messi is more than just a goalscorer, he’s a player too, with stellar assists.
“Not only should Messi’s goals be valued, which is impressive, but also his assists. He makes us add a lot of points. The fact he’s scored 20 goals for 12 consecutive seasons is astronomical,” added Setien.
Also, it looks like Antoine Griezmann might be on the field – he has been impressing Setien so far.
“Griezmann has almost played every game. It’s true that there are more players now and the minutes will have to be shared. We will see how the competition evolves and the needs we have. Griezmann will continue to play a leading role, he is an important player,” he said.
