The goal conceded to Barcelona against Leganés continues to make people talk. Of the doubts, because the action is fast and it can seem that Luis Suárez is ahead of the ball; to the certainty, with the shot that appeared hours after the meeting in which it is clear that the Uruguayan striker hits the glove of Pichu Cuellar. "It's a clear goal, like a piano. Suarez does not touch the goalkeeper. It is true that they have been attending for a while and that is very good for what they say, but there is no more, "he said hot after the meeting, words that did not sit very well in the Leganés, when questioning the damage that Pichu I had suffered in the action. "When you go to the press conference you have not seen the images, and I endorse what my team does", said the coach of Barça in the previous round of the quarterfinal duel of the Copa del Rey against Sevilla. "TOI've seen them. There is a subsequent contact, the ball is loose and hits the goal. For me it is a legal goal. I do not know if the expression that I said is a goal like a grand piano is the right one, but for me it's a goal. The doorman does his job, just as I do mine. I do not have to apologize for thinking it's a goal. I have a clear play ».
Boateng "can play now"
In addition to the action of Suárez and Cuéllar, Valverde commented his impressions on the latest signing of the club: Kevin-Prince Boateng, hired to give a break to Luis Suárez, the only center forward left in the squad after the departure of Paco Alcácer in summer and Munir in the winter market. "He is playing" 9 "at a great level, he knows the Spanish League and he knows perfectly well the role he is going to play. It adapts to what we seek and was also available, "said the Txingurri. Waiting for the transfer to arrive, the Ghanaian player could make his debut in the next game: "He can play now, because on Saturday he played against Inter the whole match. One of the reasons you are here is because you are active. Acclimatization? As we give it a lot of acclimatization, the season ends … ». On the extra-sports problems that have accompanied the career of the new attacker, Valverde appealed to the "presumption of innocence": "What we want is for you to grow with us, score goals with us and help us. We are not going to fight with him. Meet LaLiga and in Las Palmas it was a great year. It has many things in favor ». The arrival of Boateng can surprise to be a player of 31 years, which also moves away from the so-called «Barça style». "We would like to have at home strikers who scored 15 goals in Segunda B, but that is not the case. Since I've been here, there have always been controversial signings. With Paulinho and Arturo Vidal also happened and we have given a great performance, "the coach was defended. There will be no more signings in this winter market. The question is whether Denis Suarez will come out or not.
