The Getafe coach recommends “nivea” or “aftersun” to a Barça that prefers to play without sun
MADRID, 16 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Getafe coach, Quique Sánchez Flores, said he did not want to “enter” the controversy on the pitch this Sunday in the goalless draw at the Coliseum against FC Barcelona, although he pointed out that they played “on a beautiful pitch”, while assessing the meeting of his team to keep “under control” the leader of the League.
“Barça is the best team in the League and we have been at the game level. It has been a game that was under control almost at all times. It is a fair result”, he said at a press conference, after the intervention of a Xavi Hernández who complained about the state of the Madrid grass.
“I’m not going to go into that. We haven’t played on the ground, we’ve played on beautiful grass, they take care of it all season. The same grass for both of us. When you go there they leave it super short and fast, each one plays with the conditions “It’s going better for him. The slow field hurt us in the fast attack that we would have but we have done what we had to do. We are not talking about Formula 1, we are within the regulations: hard, soft and medium tyres”, he added.
In addition, Sánchez Flores, who responded with a “nivea” or “aftersun” to assess the lack of adaptation that the rival coach commented on at 4:15 p.m. with the sun, confessed without revealing it that Xavi told him “something very funny” after the game .
“Emotionally we leave with a point and with the feeling of having been able to win. We continue with a second round that we demand of ourselves, we are going to try to continue growing. We do not want to make a difference between playing at home and away. We must face it with the same ambition. We have not taken the measure of Barça, every time we play against Barça it is to start again from scratch and have the confidence that the players will be capable of doing it”, he settled.
