Sergio Busquets spoke on the microphones of Movistar LaLiga after the match against Granada. He put a good note to the team. What feelings does the game leave?Leave good feelings. We have been a solid team. We had control of the ball. They have generated us little. It is true that it cost us when they retreated behind, but in general the team has played a good game What has changed in this match with respect to the previous ones with Valverde?It is not about comparing. Each coach has his style and his way of watching football. You will see what Setien asks us. We are not going to reveal it. We are delighted with what Ernesto has done and we are delighted with Setién.But it seems that the pressure has been higher.Having people inside, it is better to run ahead and press. There have been moments of game in which we have achieved it. We will catch it fast and we have to grow and fight for everythingBartomeu said that the team needed a boost. It will be good?The board has believed it that way and we, whoever it is, will try to make the momentum great. We are on time.Is Riqui Puig among those who can give a boost to the team?He has many things to mature but it looks like he can be here.
