"It's good for us to be normal." So he has answered Ernesto Valverde, Barça coach, when you have been asked Jeison Murillo, that next Thursday will be presented as a Barça player. The azulgrana technician claimed the need to have four power stations to face the season, a circumstance that is not given at this time by the injuries of Umtiti and Vermaelen. "We have been practically playing with two, Piqué and Lenglet," he argued. "Vermaelen will not be until mid-January and we'll see if Umtiti comes back or not to deal with his discomfort. We have managed it well until now, but we do not know how it can go from now on. The moment is delicate. Murillo is a good footballer who can help us in a short time, he can play now; knows the League at a high level. We are looking for a little security and we opt for a loan that does not cause too much expense to the entity. "
Valverde also wanted to clarify that this is an incorporation of the club and not an express request from him, even though his opinion has been important: "The signings of Barcelona are made by the Barcelona. We have had to move fast, there is no time and we needed an urgent solution. If we had 100 million to bring a super crack, another situation would have occurred; that is, it happened because of the circumstances. "The incorporation of the Colombian does not exclude the participation of the subsidiary's defense:" We also look at B. We need four power stations. We can not risk that for an accident we have to use two of the subsidiary. That does not mean they can not help us. There are Chumi, Cuenca, Mingueza; and also Miranda. And we will also inscribe Wagué ", referring to the side of Barcelona B." Do not make demagoguery with this kind of thing. Those of B have their space, they can show a lot of things and go up to Second ".
"If it is to put the four centers of B, then we bring all B", said the coach of Barca, annoyed by the repetition of questions about the quarry and Murillo when "priority" is tomorrow's game against Celtic. "It's a meeting that has a lot of crumb for many reasons. It is a rival who usually plays good games against Barcelona. It has great players, besides Iago Aspas ". "Our aspiration is to win to close the year well and keep our lead in the lead to go happy holidays. It's going to be complicated. " Valverde aims to recover Semedo while Sergi Roberto and Malcom will take a little longer to be discharged. The question is whether Coutinho will continue as substitute: "You always ask me why I do not play. Coutinho is a great player, he's helping us and he's going to help us a lot. What happens is that there are many specific moments during the season. Sometimes they play some and in others, others; it's cyclical. "
