Garcia Pimienta [Barcelona B Coach] told SER: "We are talking about the Barça DNA, but within the DNA you have to be a winner and competitive. This club aspires to win everything. If you don't have a winning mentality within your DNA, you can't play here" #FCB 🔵🔴
Pimienta: "The Barça DNA is a different way of understanding football - that they truly understand the game, they use both legs, they position themselves well, they think faster than others and that before receiving they already know what to do" #FCB 🔵🔴
Pimienta: "I assure you there are players [from the subsidiary] with this profile & that they can play in the first team, then there are other circumstances. But we must be faithful, believe, and give these players a chance, I am convinced that they have a level to spare" #FCB 👥
Pimienta: "You have to bet on these young players, like it happened with Pep. If you give these players confidence they can play and win for the first team" #FCB 👥🔵🔴
Pimienta, on Alex Collado: "We are working with him. It is true he is a boy who has already debuted in previous seasons. I'm sure the first team coach has his eye on him. For me, he's made to make a place for himself in the first team" #FCB 🇪🇸⭐️
Pimienta: "Araujo is a kid who has always wanted to learn. In the reserve team he had problems while having the ball at his feet and so we did a great job with him. Now he is a player for the Barça first team" #FCB 🇺🇾💣
Pimienta: "Riqui Puig must win to have more minutes, in the end it is the coach who wants to win. When he started he did well, with me from day to day he has pushed hard to fulfill his dream of playing in the first team. He is young, but he is made to play at Barça" #FCB 🇪🇸⭐️
Pimienta: "I don't know if Messi will continue, but I hope he does. I can't imagine a Barça without him, he has done his entire career right here. He has earned the right to decide what he wants to do, but I hope he ends his career with us" #FCB 🇦🇷
Pimienta: "Being a coach for the Barça first team is very complicated, but I work to be prepared in case the club needs me one day. Just as we train the players, my obligation is to be trained and be prepared in case my turn comes one day" #FCB 🤝🔵🔴

ℹ️ “How come we are interested in this player when we have no president?” — Barcelona’s current sporting area, which is led by Ramon Planes, has been doing a market search in these last few months ahead of the elections this March, as advanced by multiple sources. More below. ⤵️
Planes is filing reports on different kinds of players they could look into & positions which we need to be reinforced. That’s why we’ve been linked to players like Isak, Nunez or Bryan Gil, though not all reports which links us to a player from another club rn are credible. 📑
All these reports are going to be for the next president & his management who will arrive in March after the elections. They will arrive at the club w/ many reports on different players the club should consider looking into & what positions should be strengthened in the team. 👥

(🌕) Ronald Koeman, the candidates & the technical secretariat agree that it is a priority to sign a CF. Erling Håland is a name that pleases everyone, though Barça will need to sell players & lower their wage bill before signing him. @ffpolo #Transfers #ElectionsFCB 🇳🇴

More: ⤵️
ℹ️ Among the presidential candidates, especially Joan Laporta & Victor Font, there is talk of Erling Håland’s possible signing if certain circumstances occur. @ffpolo #Transfers #ElectionsFCB 🇳🇴
ℹ️ There are other names too, other than just Håland. Aguero is a player who is considered to have ‘Barça level’ by some candidates and that he would be a good incentive to try and renew Messi. Ronald Koeman likes Depay & Lukaku. Ramon Planes likes Lautaro. @ffpolo #Transfers 👥

Pedri told @AP: “I've always loved Iniesta and his way of playing football, the way he plays both on and off the field. He was my reference and I've tried to imitate him. I think I’ve seen all of Iniesta’s videos on YouTube and I had never missed a game of his” #FCB 🇪🇸⭐️
Pedri, on his combinations with Messi: “Maybe that's something I learned from Andres, but the truth is they're things that happen on the field. If you suddenly listen to Leo, you know you can give him the ball because he'll create danger & end up marking as usual” @AP #FCB 🇦🇷🤝🇪🇸
Pedri, on Koeman: “One day he put me aside & had told me that he didn't know much about me, that he had barely seen me play and I’d have to show him what I can do in training. I got motivation out of that. I knew I had to work as hard as anyone to win my place” @AP #FCB 🇪🇸
