Maxwell: "Iniesta is unique"

David Puig

Maxwell is delighted to see Iniesta back in the squad, and also commented that although they are short of time to get ready for Getafe, the team will be up to the task.

Maxwell was speaking after training on Wednesday, and commented on how much he admires his new team mate. "It is very important for the team to get Iniesta back because he’s a unique player with great qualities. He makes it all look so easy on the pitch and he can decide a game on his own. He’s getting his form back and it will be a pleasure to play alongside such a class player ".

No excuses against Getafe

"But we’re not looking for excuses. We are a good group and with such strength we’ll be able to get through the match. Also, the coach knows exactly how we should play it and I don’t think the absence of the internationals will end up being a problem".

Bittersweet feelings

As a Brazilian, Maxwell is delighted his country will be at the 2010 World Cup, but is also concerned about the fact that Leo Messi could be missing out. "I am very pleased that Brazil have gone though but it is sad to see that a team of such tradition as Argentina could miss out on the World Cup. Also, we all want Leo to be happy, because if his morale is high, he’ll help us more. But they still have a chance and if they start winning matches I’m sure they’ll qualify ".

Inter on the horizon
Maxwell is only concerned about Getafe at the moment, but the Champions League is also on the back of everyone’s minds. And first up it’s none other than Inter: "They have a strong team” he said. “And a good defence. They are physically strong and work well in tactical areas. It will be a hard game for us and we’ll have to play our very best of we want to win at the San Siro.”
