In an interview given to Catalan newspaper Regió7, Carles Rexach has revealed a few secrets about the Catalan club that have not been known until now. Rexach spoke about the annoyment of both Vilanova and Guardiola because they both had received offers from Premier league side Manchester United.
Rexach , who is now part of Barcelona’s coaching staff, also spoke about Argentine Leo Messi: “Before, he ate at the club and rested after but I think last year Messi ate more pizza than he should have.”
He also had words about new manager Luis Enrique: “He’s started off with too many rules like who doesn’t train, does not play. Let’s see what happens when Messi doesn’t train and he needs him.”
Finally, regarding Real Madrid and Florentino Perez, Rexach didn’t mince his words: “He looks (Florentino Pérez) at the world transfer market and wants a galactic showcase of a team. Del Bosque and Di Maria are very ugly for Real Madrid.”
Barcelona however have a chance to catch up with league leaders Real Madrid when they travel to Granada this afternoon to Los Cármenes stadium. Barça are obligated to win this clash and cut the distance between them and Los Merengues.
