New Barcelona Coach, Ernesto Valverde Vows To Revisit Renowned Slick Passing Game

Newly-installed Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde vowed Thursday to “deepen” and “revisit” the renowned slick passing game of the Catalan giants in a bid to lead the club to success in all possible competitions next season.
.
“I know the style because I played here” between 1998-90, Valverde said at his first press conference after being named successor to Luis Enrique on a two-year contract with the option of a further year.
.
“I must adapt myself, or rather readapt, in a certain way. My goal is always to deepen the style, to revisit it once again.”
.
Valverde, 53, has some big shoes to fill, Enrique having won nine of 13 possible trophies in his time at the helm.
.
“I must absolutely adapt to the style of the game plan employed by the team, which has had so much success,” said the coach, who signed from Athletic Bilbao.
.
“To have a very collective game plan, based on midfielders,” he said, adding that he wanted to win “all competitions that we can” next season.
.
“What I’ve always liked is that Barca manages to achieve its ends through its game plan, without speculating, by going forward.”
.
Valverde did not say what exactly he wanted to improve.
.
“We’ll see over time,” he said.
.
“In football, you always have to keep going forward. If you don’t, you go backwards. But it’s a progressive issue and we’ll see little by little.
.
“To say what can be improved is a dangerous thing and I can only tip my hat to what my predecessor Luis Enrique, who is a great coach, achieved here.
.
“I have my idea about what can be done, not better but in a different way.”
.
Turning to his motivation in joining Barca, Valverde said: “I said I wanted a tough challenge and it’s one the toughest.
.
“When a team like FC Barcelona calls you, you don’t have to think about it too much.”
.
Valverde also dismissed any worries about managing a squad packed with some of the world’s best-paid and recognised players.
.
“I expect to find a squad of young players who want to win and will give the best of themselves,” he said.
.
“We idealise too much all this, millionaire players and all that. I don’t know many players who were born millionaires.”
.
Working with Argentina’s Leo Messi would be a “unique experience”, the coach added.
.
“He’s the best player I’ve ever seen on a pitch. Sometimes you could say Leo Messi has reached the summit, but he surprises you even more the following day.
.
“I hope to enjoy seeing him play and do everything possible to help him. And I hope he’ll continue to surprise us.”
