"We will face match vs Depor with caution. They have great numbers"
Luis Enrique appeared in press conference before the match against Deportivo de la Coruña (this Saturday at 4pm CET.) The coach asked the fans to cheer the team and not to think about Club World Cup, which is going to be played next week.
The coach also said Leo Messi is ok and that Sergi Roberto and Mathieu got medical green light.
Here you have his best statements:
"I want to ask the supporters not to think about Club World Cup and cheer us during this Saturday's match."
"We face the team with caution. Deportivo have spectacular numbers and it will be a dangerous opponent. They are the team that surprised me the most this season. They have nothing to do with last season."
"Leo Messi is absolutely fit. The supporters can be calm."
"What worries me is that the player is 100% ready. He is a magic player, able to beat opponents with a great offensive performance."
"It's always bad news when an important player is injured. But the team will have to look for solutions and try to overcome the situation."
Sergi Roberto and Mathieu
"Sergi Roberto is ok. Today he got medical green light, as well as Mathieu. Great news."
"I was not surprised by his performance. It's a player you fall in love with when you see him training. He trains 1,000 per 1,000."
Club World Cup
"Is River in Japan yet? It's better to stay more days in the place of the final but in Europe we have this tight calendar and can't be changed."
"There will be many River supporters, but we will play 11 vs 11. There will be Barcelona fans too."
