Vicente del Bosque, coach of Spain’s national football team, admitted for the first time disagreements between players from Barcelona and Real Madrid at the national team action. “There are things that do not disappear overnight. It’s normal. But as is normal that these little squabbles to not affect team’s performance in games. Players know how to discern between the defending a club and the national team. I believe there is no doubt, even if there are small punctures between players, they do not affect the national team.” said Del Bosque in an interview for El Confidencial.
La Roja coach went even further with disclosures. “On the pitch, Xavi, Xabi and Busquets completed as well, working as a team. Xavi passes to Xabi, to Arbeloa… Then at trainings are free to group themselves as they want, but this to not appear on the pitch. To be friends at the squad. I calmed down when I saw them playing. Besides the pitch, is another problem…” said enigmatically the coach of the World and European champion.
“It is impossible no exist such comments, small quarrels. To say to one another: Hey, you said you do not know what… There were very tough matches between Barcelona and Real, with plenty of outside influence. What is important, however, remains what is on the field. If we see that there are happening things that are not appropriate, we take action. The national team is above everything, ” added Del Bosque.
