Former Barça player praised the coach in an interview to a Catalan newspaper
Carles Puyol told the truth this Saturday in an interview to a Catalan newspaper (La Vanguardia), to which he recognized onece again that he misses football so much, that he thought about playing again without earning anything, and he also had some words about the team managed by Luis Enrique. These are his most highlighted words:
Have you celebrated the treble with Luis Enrique?
"Not yet, though we are best friends. I would have loved to work with him."
Lucho and the stars
"I don't know what happened there, but Luis Enrique is a very cool guy. Maybe the image he gives does not correspond to his way of being. I am lucky to know him and I can say he is a good person, very close, he never disappoints you and always tells you the truth, and this is what a player wants, to hear the truth."
Unbearable change of life
"I miss football so much. If only I could practice some sport it would be affordable, but the change has been form a hundred to zero, very tough."
A flat tire
"I can make some exercises but without making any effort. No football, no padel tennis, no impact. I can't also run for a long time. But not I'll try a training which I expect it to give good results."
"Body is ok and head as well, the problem is that I have a flat tire."
"The only thing I regret is not being surgically intervened before. If I had done it before, I would be playing right now."
"Make others play"
"After the last operation, when the knee started to make liquid I saw that I couldn't play nor train. I wasn't reliable. Martino wanted me to play on the field, but I told him: 'Make other play, they are in better shape.'"
Playing without earning
"I wanted to play til I was 40 years old, I even thought about playing without earning, but I couldn't."
"I would tell a lie if I told you that I haven't thought about playing again. My objective is to recover of my knee injury and then you never know."
And now what?
"Now it's the time to learn. I did the course of Sports Director, now I will take coaching lessons."
