Barcelona's centre back has talked again about Luis Enrique, Messi, and the discipline of the changing room

Jéremy Mathieu, the Barcelona's centreback is having a great season after Barcelona paid 20 milions euros for him. L'Equipe made an interview to Mathieu, with the other French players of the club as Nicola Karabatic, Cédric Sorhaindo and Edwin Jackson. The centreback talked about the moment he is running through in Barcelona, as well as his coach, Messi and when he signed for Barça.

This are the most distinguished statements of the player:

Leo Messi

"When Barcelona called me, I asked my son If he would like to stay in Valencia with their friends or he preferred that his daddy could play with Messi. He didn't doubt and told me to go to play with Messi".

Luis Enrique

"Luis Enrique is an special person. He doesn't talk a lot with his players. We know what we have to do, but we don't know what he is thinking".

Luis Enrique's discipline in players diet

"In Valencia we could have our wine and beers during the meals. Here, we don't".

His routine

"I'm really homely... I have not gone to Palau Blaugrana for the basket".

The pressure

"We know that there is always pressure. It always exists because you're in Barcelona".

An anecdote 

"One day, I was leaving Joan Gamper Sport Training Center and one guy stopped my car and didn't allow me to continue.I went off of the car and I asked him what he was doing. Do you know what they asked me? That I made him lose 200 euros in a bet!"
