Sergi Roberto: "We will be just as motivated as Wembley against Tottenham"

Before the Inter de Milà – Barça on Tuesday (9:00 am, Movistar Champions League), Sergi Roberto spoke at a press conference. The Reus player said they are eagerly awaiting "to finish the first group competition" and that they will jump into the field "just as motivated as against Tottenham." Sergi Roberto said they had to be on the same level as they were against Sevilla, Inter at the Camp Nou or against Madrid, and reminded them that they would "cost more" to Rayo to do a good game. "Messi still has no medical discharge, but he is very happy to be with us and we who are with us."

Reusenc claimed that when Messi was injured, they were all "a bit scared", but they worked to win the matches without him and those from the bottom of the Argentinian star all won. "Without Leo, we're not that strong, but we've shown that we have a great team to do great things this year," Sergi Roberto said. In the last few matches, the Catalan football player gave three assistant goals to Luis Suárez: "He comes forward, it is normal for him to finish our balls, I am very happy to do so many goals, hopefully I can continue to help with more assists. . "

Sergi Roberto admitted that in the most demanding games the team gets angry, but he reminded them that they can not brag about duels such as those of the Rayo, because "points are needed to achieve titles". The Catalan football player confirmed that both he and the team are "in a good line". To ask for the defense, which at this stage has achieved many more goals than last year, Roberto stated that "there are things to improve", but the team "is happy". "We are leaders in the League and in our Champions League group we also go first", he appreciated Catalan.

"I did not say that he wants to be the protagonist in the middle, but with the team"

At Inter Milan Roberto expects a difficult match because the Italians will be "very strong at home" and want to play "yours". With regard to Mauro Icardi, for the Inter formed in La Masia, with whom Roberto shared the floor when they were juveniles and the intercomspits had an iguana, the Catalan joked: "Luckily it was locked up in his room." On the other hand, the Catalan footballer, a midfielder playing sideways, stated that he has not said he wants to be the protagonist in the middle of the field, but what he wants is to be "a protagonist with the team". "If he plays sideways, then sideways," he concluded.
