Iniesta warns about Champions League demands
Andrés Iniesta knows the team will need to be firing on all cylinders in such a demanding competition as the Champions League, where any errors can cost dear.
Speaking at a press conference, Iniesta has spoken about how Barça need to put the defeat at home
to Hercules behind them, and bounce back with a win against Panathinaikos. “You just want to
win again and get the good feelings back”, he said.
Champions League on his mind
He is delighted to have another bash at a European title, but knows that the road to Wembley
will be a difficult one. “We will need to charge are batteries and have the right heads for
such an important match … the Champions League is a very demanding competition and you pay
the price for any mistakes”.
Hunger for titles
Iniesta doesn’t like to hear suggestions that so much success has
knocked some of the ambition out of the squad. “I can assure you that we on fine form and
ready to try to carry on winning, and we can let this chance go” he said, and added that if
they don’t win “it’s not because through any lack of desire”.
Odd game on Saturday
Asked to explain the defeat to Hercules, the midfielder said “it was a very strange
game, and it was just because of one thing, but a whole lot of things that mounted up … we
found it hard to get our game flowing and Hercules were very well organised.” But he
doesn’t think they should change their approach when playing sides like that. “We just
have to be a physically and tactically ready for such games” he said.
