"The squad works hard on dead ball moves"

Marc Guillén

The day after his debut for Barcelona in a competitive match, Martín Cáceres says that the squad works hard on dead ball moves in training.

Barça has scored four goals from corners in its last two games – one against Sporting Lisbon and three against Sporting Gijon – and the Uruguayan says that a lot of work is done on set-pieces in training. “The boss is really good at that,” he said. “We do a lot of set-piece work in training and I hope it goes on that way.”

Competition debut

Cáceres hadn’t appeared for Barça since August 7. He played a lot in the first five preseason games but then was left out until the club’s third League fixture.

“The veteran guys want to win things”

“This squad knows what’s what,” said Cáceres, who joined Barça this summer. “The veteran guys want to win things and they’re helping us to do that.”

All have made their debuts
Cáceres’s appearance on Sunday means that all the players in the squad have now turned out for Barça at some stage. The only players not to have appeared at all in the 2008/09 season so far are José Manuel Pinto and the injured Gaby Milito and Albert Jorquera, though of course the three have played in previous seasons.
