Carles Puyol is one of the ambassadors of the Danone Nations Cup, the largest children's competition in the world that these days is being held in Salou and Barcelona. In an act prior to the final of the tournament that will be played this afternoon at the Espanyol stadium, the former Barcelona captain reviewed several current issues and among them, analyzed the dart that Piqué sent to the Barça club director. "You have to respect him, he says what he thinks, he goes straight. We all know him. I like to speak the same as Messi, so he would have acted more like him," said Puyol.
There was also time to talk about one of the most controversial issues of the week: the removal of Victor Valdes. "Victor as a coach does not have much experience yet. Last season he did very well. In the world of football he has a lot of knowledge to teach children. I do not know the reasons for his departure and I am not in the club, but I am sure he will be a great coach and will train great players. Baseball is not easy, you have to focus on the formation of the players and not so much on the results. "
On his decision to reject Barca's offer to be a sports director, Puyol was satisfied. "It was very clear in the statement, it cannot be interpreted beyond what I said. I am in a vital moment, I am developing projects, now one will be very closely related to the DNC; an online soccer and values program designed for fathers and mothers who want to spend time with their children playing football. I believe in education through sports, with values beyond football, "he said.
