Andrés Iniestaspoke to Sport Bild about his relationship withPep Guardiola.
“We’re friends. I’m sure he thinks about me sometimes, although he has more than enough good players“, he said.
On the tie:“Our own performance will be key. We have to give it everything we’ve got in both games; otherwise we have little chance of going through”.
On Pep’s starring role:“It’s normal. He played a huge part in Barça’s history and that will never be forgotten”.
On that 7-0 defeat:“I don’t like the word revenge. Sometimes things go exactly to plan and other times they just don’t, as happened to us then”.
On Barcelona’s good form:“We’re fully focused on our objectives. There are only a few games left and any mistake could be the difference between success and failure. We want success”.
On Ter Stegen’s quality:“Marc is a great guy. He’s young and well-rounded in every aspect of his game. We’re all really pleased with him. We’re extremely lucky that he and Bravo both offer guarantees between the posts”.
On Thiago’s return to the Camp Nou:“I’m glad he’s coming back after such a long time away. He was unlucky here and coming back as he is just proves his class”.
