    Here he is. The little genius with the big master.

    Damn he is small haha. Even Messi is significantly taller than him.
    Hope he will make it into the first team, love to see him play.

    By the way, he is MVP on almost every tournament he plays. Impressive...

    Don't forget the topscorer Patrice (4 goals) and Bobby (3 goals), great performance by them as well.
    And yes, Collado is #10. Joy to watch.

    Alex Collado and Oriol Busquets are the biggest stars of this team. But there are some others that are just a level lower, but also fun to watch (Bobby, Patrice, Jordi)

    IŮaki (GK) did a good job as well yesterday. He saved 6 of the 9 penalties and scored the winner

    Carles MartŪnez (coach for Infantil A) interview with Sport

     
    You were working with Espanyol and BarÁa knocked on your door, was it difficult to make that decision?

    It was complicated for the sporting media because I knew there would be controversies or people would try to make a big deal out of it. Personally, on a professional level it was a very important opportunity and I couldnít say no.

    Was it all with Espanyol like the media published it or was there a good relationship with the club?

    I have nothing bad to say about Espanyol. During the five seasons I worked there, they treated me great and the day I left too. I said goodbye of everyone and the truth is that everything went well. Everything was sold differently the next day but the truth is our relationship have always been good.

    Once you arrive to BarÁa, you win your first league title on your very first season, how do you feel?

    Very happy. I think I have a squad of outstanding quality. One of the objectives was the learning process and the other to be champions. The most important thing is how we have won the championship, doing a great season and Iím very pleased with my players.

    Whatís the secret?

    It involves a little bit of everything. Talent, strength, speed, very good little boys and step by step we have achieved to bring together these features in the benefit of the team. We are in a balanced state between the offense, defense, competitiveness and knowing what to do on the pitch.

    Fate wanted you to win the league title on Espanyolís field, did that make it more special or would you have preferred another field?

    I understand that for the boys and the club is more special but for me the important was to clinch the title as soon as possible and the setting was the least of my concerns. Perhaps, in order to be able to celebrate it more, Iíd have preferred another field.

    Does it exist that rivalry against Espanyol in the academy squads?

    For them itís an important match. Itís a special day. We always try for them to take on every match with the same motivation. You want them to feel good and you have to provide them a positive message.

    On the pitch you are one of the most demanding coaches but afterwards Iíve seen youíre the first one to encourage the titles celebrations, is that your philosophy?

    I always tell them that Iím very strict, that Iím always on their backs but we do it so they can enjoy of these moments and appreciate where they are. Iím the type of person who prefers to say the things up front and not hold back anything until the end of the season. Iím completely open about things. You have to be demanding because this is the way the world is but afterwards Iím the first one who enjoys having a nice environment outside the pitch.

    Whatís the next objective?

    To keep going because you can never remain idle here. However, to speak only about winning in the academy level is not the most important thing. We have to keep working in order to improve their performances for the upcoming season. Based on that, if you can win some title then perfect.

    This has been a complicated year due to the FIFA ban, has it been difficult to manage the squad?

    At first, it was difficult to watch them training and they couldnít play. Logically, for me it was easier to make the rotations because there were fewer players. On the other hand, in January you have the great joy because they can play knowing that for you will be a bit more complicated since youíre trying to give everyone a chance. Each week, four of them had to be left out and that was tough but itís the coachís job. They have to learn this is how it works.

    To say to a player that he didnít make the squad, is the worst part of being a Barcelona coach?

    Without a doubt. We give a lot of explanations and perhaps we should be more direct. When there is an important match we try to excuse ourselves even though they will get angry because itís the normal thing to do. Weíd like that the 22 of them could enjoy of that day. I want to take advantage of this interview to congratulate the four of them that couldnít play that day because they had a celebration attitude even better than some of their teammates.

    Now that youíre talking about the squad, is it complicated to manage a person like Pablo Moreno who has 66 goals in one season?

    Pablo is very good. Heís the most competitive player I have ever trained. Itís that drive that makes him special. I admire him because heís always on the spotlight yet he takes it very well and calm. Iím very pleased with the change heís doing in his control abilities. If he can succeed in that, which he is doing, he has a bright future although he has to take it step by step.

    I suppose that before you arrive to La Masia you had an idea of what it was, do you still think the same or have you changed your mind?

    Iím very surprised. From the outside it doesnít seem that the club is so friendly. Actually, I have a spectacular relationship with all the coaches. You can see how the care about each other in the locker rooms aisle which is shared from the prebenjamin category to the cadet one, the relationship among them creates an excellent footballing environment. Itís the warmest club I have ever been.

    If itís in this way, is it responsibility of Jordi Roura and Aureli Altimira?

    The truth is they are people who listen to you and give you great advices. They have the ability to analyze what we told them and they make the decisions as the responsibles. Itís one of the lucky things we got.

    What has been the best moment [of the season]?

    I believe we all are going to say the same thing but itís the truth: it was the moment when the new signings could debut. These were kids who couldnít play and no matter how much you tried to explain them, they couldnít understand. The day they were finally able to play was the happiest one.

    For the upcoming season, do you want to change anything or will you keep this seasonís line of work?

    When you just arrive, there are some things you canít control like the schedules and we are fixing that little by little. Youíre always trying to find a solution to improve their learning process.

    One last question, define your first season in one word.

    Special.
