"If he doesn't train well, he doesn't play"
Alen Halilovixc is one of the players Barça have spread around the world. The Croatian player evolves this season under Pitu Abelardo's orders in Sporting Gijón, Barça's future opponent on Saturday in La Liga.
During the press conference previous to the game Sporting will play on Wednesday against Sevilla, Abelardo referred to Halilovic and to the fact that during the last few games he was on the bench:
- "It is not about quality. I'm not offering anything. If he doesn't train well, he doesn't play."
- "However, he played well on Saturday and in addition he brought support in defence."
A few weeks ago, Halilovic's agent confirmed that the midfielder would play one more season on loan in a club yet to be determined.
