Celta Vigo: “We have one of the best tactically worked rivals. Benítez is very methodical and Celta deserves more points than he has. They know what they are playing, they are clear about it, a very complicated start, but it is true that things are going better for us away from home.”

The distance with Real Madrid and signing of Mbappé: “I don’t have much to say: the only official thing is that he is leaving PSG. Our situation is different: finish the season well, now Celta, then the Champions League and we are focused on this.”

Future of Frenkie de Jong: “It’s evidence, right? Frenkie is a very important player, he is comfortable and then it depends on him. But this is not the time to talk about exits from within. We talk about correcting things against Celta and then the Champions League. We don’t think about next season.”

Thinking about Napoli for the Champions League: “It will not affect the lineup against Celta. We are going step by step and there will be time to think about the Champions League.”

The arrival of Mbappé is good for La Liga: “I shouldn’t talk, don’t ask me about Mbappé, I’m sorry, but I’m not going to talk.”

Players’ feelings: “I have seen that it bothers them to lose, that they want to win, that it matters a lot to them when we lose. They are screwed, then we will compete wherever we can. If I didn’t see the commitment it would be time to make drastic decisions but that’s not what I see.”

Future of Gavi: “He has to stay and be one of the future captains of the team. There is no color: for me it must be the Barça of the future.”

Do you enjoy it more since you said you were leaving? “On the one hand, yes. On the other hand, a feeling of sadness at leaving the club of my life. I think we are too emotional, that we only think about the last game. I am calm and more motivated. Thinking more about football and I’ll give it my all. “I’m fine, I feel very good.”
