Luis Enrique

Luis Enrique appeared this morning in press conference before the match against Valencia The coach said they will try to win, which could mean his record of matches without losing could be increased. However, Luis Enrique said that he would never use it as an incitement for his players.

The Blaugrana coach also talked about the statements of Busquets, who said he would only leave Barça for his wife or for Guardiola.

Here you have his main statements:

Valencia

"We prepared the match without thinking in the score of the first leg."

"I have never used the record of matches without losing as an incitement and I won't in the future."

"Maybe tomorrow some non-usual players will have minutes, but I don't want to give a clue to the opponent. The preparation is the same as always, but it's determined by the unusual result in the first leg."

Messi

"Messi playing on Sunday? The club already sent a statement and the information of the patient is private. I have nothing to comment."

Guardiola

"No, Guardiola's signing for City is not a threat for possible signings."

Busquets' statements

"Ask him or Guardiola. Don't ask Luis Enrique."

"Busquets is a Top player worldwide, a really important player for us."

Rafinha

"Rafinha won't be a winter signing. We could say it will be a spring singing. Everything is going very well but he still needs 2 months more. We don't know if he will be able to help us at the end of this season or the next one."

Barça B

"If they are down on the table, the have less options to play with the first team. But if they are better, they can come with us. Furthermore, Second Divison B have a lower level than Second Divison A, and in order to play in the first team you need to have a really high level."

Alves to China? 

"Any player will leave right now. Circumstances may change, but we don't have an excess of players."

Douglas

"We tried to find a team for him so he could have more minutes. He finally stayed and have the same options as the others. I don't have any complaint about any player."

Right back

"Competition between Vidal and Alves? I would not rule out Sergi Roberto neither. They are all performing really well; I'm really happy with them."
