"Last season, FC Barcelona won everything in an absolutely different way Guardiola did"
FC Barcelona's former coach, Tata Martino, talked about La Masia and wondered if new players coming from Barcelona's Academy will have the level of Iniesta, Busquets or Xavi. In an interview at Goal.com, the Argentine also talked about the success of his former team:
- "Busquets, Xavi and Iniesta are a part of La Masia. The question is: what will happen when Busquets, Xavi and Iniesta are not Messi's teammates anymore? The new mates of Messi will be boys coming from La Masia or players coming from outside the team?"
- "It's not about winning or not winning. In fact, Barça won everything last season in a totally different way Guardiola did. The question is: will things be different when they all three are not playing any more?"
- "We are talking about the best left midfielder in the world, Iniesta, and the best defensive midfielder, Busquets, so finding replacement will be difficult."
