“You had to win for the civil or for the criminal”

The phrase, as own Sergi Barjuan acknowledged, it does not belong to him. “As Luis Aragonés said, it was necessary to win for the civil or for the criminal,” acknowledged the interim Barça coach after that valuable victory in Kiev that allows him to see a halo of hope in the midst of the chaos that the club is experiencing. Sergi is so acting that he does not know what will become of his immediate future. “I don’t know if I’ll finish the week in Vigo or at the Estadi Johan Cruyff,” admitted the coach, revealing the message he sent to the players before starting the game against Dinamo.

“As culé that I am, I have gone to the feeling”, Sergi began saying. “I have told the players, that there were many homegrown players, to understand how important this game was for the club,” he stressed.

So important that it was essential to win abroad, something that Barça had not achieved this season, to survive. “I have reminded them that we had not won away. I do not know if it worked or not, but I had to change the script a bit. When you win you free yourself and I think this hit on the table is important,” he said.

Greetings to Ansu

Then he has turned to praise for Ansu. “It has that which is differential. It has a goal. It has that quality that contributes and frees Memphis a bit,” he said, specifying that “when you can divide the focus of your threats, that makes rivals have several objectives and there are more free spaces.”

The one who really broke free was his own Sergi. “It is true that, on a personal level, the fact of being here at Barça is the milk because this club has given me everything,” said the interim coach, assessing the decisive contribution of Dembélé, to whom he had to turn ahead of schedule. He played the final 25 minutes of the second half and changed the offensive landscape of Barça.

“He has speed, one on one, vision of the game … He attracts players and I have put it earlier than I expected. It is appreciated that the players who were touched have wanted to play. Among them, he. And he is a player who marks the difference, “said the coach about the French striker.
