Luis Enrique spoke at a press conference on Saturday night in Japan, previewing Barcelona’s clash with River Plate in the Club World Cup final. Here are his key quotes:
Messi and Neymar: Both are getting better. Messi’s good, improving. There are many hours to go and we will see if he and Neymar can play.
Form: The team is very well, it was in Barcelona before travelling, it was on Thursday and it is now.
River Plate supporters: I know there will be a lot of River fans. The more noise in the stadium, the better for everyone.
River style: River are a team that are used to controlling the ball. I don’t think they’ll be unsporting. I am very calm about that. They will come out to play football, after that everyone uses what weapons they have. Everyone knows how Barcelona play.
Motivation: Winning tomorrow is what we want to do, I see my players as motivated as any other team. The trophy excites us a lot, it shows who is the best club this year.
