Barca's new goalkeeper, Claudio Bravo, has given an interview to El Deportivo, where he reviewed subjects like adaptationto the Catalan club, competition and major differences he has noticed from La Real Sociedad:
"We are ooking forward to start the league and , we just have a short preparatory phase left".
"Signing with the best club in the world is not a, and it's an extra motivation that opens the hunger to win titles"
"The treatment has always been amazing and adaptation has been very fast."
" I had to compete against those who are now my colleagues many times and this helps adaptati. The atmosphere in the dressing room makes you feel comfortable also hepls to have an easier adaptation. "
"It went very well, we've done a very good preparation, beyond the results.. Training sessions are different, some are stronger, some with a lower intensity, and with the ball ... It has been a little bit of everything and that should help a lot for the matches. "
[A demanding, Luis Enrique?] "Yes, always. Workouts are always with rythm like the coach asks. He wants us to be well trained."
"He is rigorous when it comes to trainings and matches, but also he has his human side outside from work. He has his prankster side, and that good for us players because we feel more close. Coaches that put barriers, that is not good. "
Competition in the goal
"Is true that at Real Sociedad I had an specific job, but also this has been the strongest preseason I've ever played. Exchanging the goal this year with Ter Stegen and Masip is positive because it creates competition "
"We are very clear that if we train well, we will play, and then we'll see how we compete. We must seek the best feelings in the trainings and get along with us, that will help a lot to have a healty competition "
"Pressure here is logical, and that's what I like. We compete for the ultimate goal and that is winning.So you don't train to compete and fail, you work each week and throughout the year to reach the final and win it. "
The Napoli's mistake
"These things happen to goalkeepers. That day I made a great stop and nobody remembers. I'll stick with the good feeling, because I had to intervene many times, and not in that moment I did it wrong [...] If there were goalkeepers who never failed it would be even stranger. goalkeeper is a different character, and always have to be calm even if itis going well or wrong ".
Differences with the training of the Royal Society
"The main difference is that I'm involved in the exercises with the team. In Real Soaciedad I only practiced with them in training matches "
