Nolito: “we could have scored five”

Manuel Agudo ‘Nolito’ was unable to mark his first team debut with a win, but in his quarter of an hour on the pitch he showed a number of classy touches as Barça pushed for a winner.

Speaking after the game, Barça’s latest young prospect commented: “I’m happy to have made my debut, though it was bitter sweet because we were held to a draw. Mallorca didn’t do much at all and it was a pity that we only drew” .

According to Nolito, Guardiola’s only words were: “play as you can, take on your opponent and open up the game”. Finally Nolito insisted: “my job now is to get back to the B team and keep working hard. I’m really enjoying playing in the second division, though of course it would be nice to play with the first team again too. I’m just working hard every day and I’m very proud to have had the chance to made my debut in the top flight today”.

Below are some of the other players’ post match comments

Javier Mascherano:

“I personally am feeling better with every game, more comfortable. I’m prepared to take more risks with my passing and I’m feeling more natural with the team defending too”.

Andrés Iniesta:

“We tried everything we could, but we didn’t find the best way through. We don’t need to get obsessed or go crazy”.
“The state of the pitch is not an excuse, but if it was better it would help us”.

Gerard Piqué:

“Right now we just have to concentrate on winning the three points against Valencia”. “We had plenty of chances and we need to be sharper to avoid suffering so much”
“This is just a slip up”.

Víctor Valdés:

“If we could have taken any of the many chances we created, the game would have been different”.
“The pitch is soft and it breaks easily, but that can’t be an excuse for today’s result”.
