“We’re taking this game very seriously”

Marc Guillén

Josep Guardiola is impressed by the way Getafe play and also by their coach Víctor Muñoz as he’s always caused problems for Barça at Camp Nou.

Guardiola doesn’t want to think about four games in a row against the top teams, but instead wants to concentrate on Barça’s next opponents because “if you want to win the League you have to take all your games seriously”.

“Messi’s fine”

221108_entreno_x14x.jpgJosep Guardiola had a positive message for Barça fans when he said that Messi has “nothing serious”. “He had a niggle and today he’s trained on his own but he did a full work-out and we’ll see tomorrow whether he can play,” said Barça’s coach. “Whenever you play there’s always a risk of injury, always.”

Guardiola says that the Argentine is “in good spirits and really wants to play” though this time his problem is different: “So far it’s always been the back of the leg and yesterday he had a niggle at the front.”

All games are important

22-11-08_WEB_GUARDIOLA_03.jpgFor Guardiola the vital match is always the next one because “all games are important”. The fact that many Barça players have been away on international duty this week is an added problem for Barça in a game against Getafe who have “lots of quality players”.

“I have a lot of respect for Víctor Muñoz; he’s got a great track record and has done really well against us here at Camp Nou,” said Guardiola about Getafe’s manager. “He always seems to have something up his sleeve for this game.” Getafe have only lost once away this season and recently “didn’t deserve” to lose to Seville and Valencia.

Key players
Guardiola admits that players like Andrés Iniesta and Lionel Messi are crucial for the way the team plays. “Of course we’re stronger with them, but without the rest of the team they can’t do anything,” he pointed out. “We all take part in everything and we’re all important, not just them.”
