“We have started to work on the squad. Throughout my career, I have always got on well with sporting directors. We have been able to discuss things a lot over the last few weeks, and we agree on the idea we have for the squad and the transfer window. I’m convinced we’ll have a great team and we’ll achieve great things. Regarding this summers transfers, I want to take decisions based on consensus, see my players in training. We’re entering a new era, we want to play an attacking style, we want the fans to enjoy watching their team.”


“An attacking identity is non-negotiable. My philosophy is to go forward. You have to adapt to the players you have, and get the best out of them. And my aim is to play attacking football in which the team comes first. We are going to have a great team, we want the fans to be proud. We will work all together to make a great team. I know it’s not easy, but we have to create synergy, work together.”


“That’s my job on a daily basis. From my experience as a player, at Real Madrid or Barcelona, and then as coach of Barcelona, I have worked with a lot of stars. The players are intelligent, they know we are here to help them. And when they understand that, they commit totally to you. We have to provide the platform for them on which to shine.”
