The manager spoke about his past at Barcelona with fifa.com

Tata Martino spoke this Monday about his past memories at Barcelona with fifa.com and he admitted it was difficult for him to make rotations in the squad. The Argentinal national manager spoke about Barça's dressing room. These are Martino's best quotes in this interview.

Squad rotations

“Squad rotation is so eveybody feels comfortable and motivated, but this goes to hell when the first important match comes. Then the player says, ok, this is the reality, rotation is great but in the big matches, this is going to be the starting line-up. That's what a player thinks, that maybe because he didn't play in the 10th gameweek against Madrid that means he won't do it again when the important match comes".

Criticism

“I try to be critic with myself. In Barça's case, the difference is that I speak about it. Others maybe don't do it, because they prefer to say nothing".

Barça's dressing-room

“It's similar than at the Argentina national squad. In a club like Barcelona, the difference is that you compete every three days and the coach ends up discovering the squad quickly".
