Demichelis: "Every footballer likes to play these sorts of matches”

Málaga Club de Fútbol player, Martín Demichelis, spoke to press at the Ciudad de Málaga stadium, minutes before the training session of Friday 20 January.

Statements from Martín Demichelis
“I knew Kameni from watching him play whilst I was in Germany, not personally, but I’ve got good references.  We’ll welcome him to the team and hope that he adapts as quickly as possible and feels comfortable, which is the main priority when a new player joins the team”.
“Barcelona is one of the best teams in history.  They’re analysed every weekend by coaches, journalists and players, and no-one knows how to beat them.  They’ve got the best players, and a very well defined ideology.  We want to play a great game of football against a team, which every footballer wants to play”.
“There’s been talk of ‘el clásico’ against Real Madrid, but they’ve been strengthened with the victory at the Bernabeu.  They’re motivated, playing in the League and will want to beat us, but in La Rosaleda we’re a strong team and we want to take advantage of that”.
“As well as the game this Sunday, we’re concerned about the recent run of results, which affects all of us, mainly the players as we’re the ones on the pitch.  This encourages us further to get a good result”.
“We’re so grateful to the fans for their continual support.  They are unconditional, and really helped us at the end of last season in the match against Getafe.  They always encourage us, and we’ll need them this weekend and in every game”.
