Barça's midfielder talked about football

Rafinha reaches a perfect shape at a decisive stage this season. The youngest of Alcántar's brothers has always been well considered for Luis Enrique and he could be one of the key pieces until the end of the competition. In an interview to Barça Fans, the midfielder praised Barça's offensive trident and he talked about his model players: "Xavi, Iniesta... I think they are different."

Now it's his moment

"It's the moment I have more continuity. I've went through some injuries... that avoided it to me."

Versatility

"I've never had problems with what the coach asked me. I think he has the good virtue of versatility"

Moment of the season

"We had new things on the team and we needed some time of adaptation. We take it and now we are showing what we've learnt."

"Edu's and Rafel Pol's job is very important, they give us physical training in this moment of the season"

"It will be a top demand. We are reaching the good part of the season"

The trident

"Messi, Neymar and Suárez? It's something big, very big."

"They are the best in the world and having them on your team is very good for us."

"They are near people, friends... We are normal people... we have a very good environment in the group"

Mentors

"I've been looking up to Iniesta and Xavi. I think they are different."

"Just today Iniesta controlled the ball... you think how can he low the ball this way... I haven't seen it on FIFA or on PlayStation."
