Alves 'Cesc is no racist' >> Read My Mind


Alves: 'Everything is hard and complicated, but there is no way that this will make us doubt in ourselves. We are a great team – win, lose or draw. We have shown that over the years and one result won’t change that'

Alves: 'Sevilla are one of the best teams in terms of defence that we’ve seen here. They did a fantastic job, keeping their lines close, closing down any space we might use for our short passing game. Even so, we made plenty of chances. That’s football. Seville are one of the big teams in this league and they are bound to be in there at the end of the season. This won’t be a two horse race because all the other teams fight hard and it’s always going to be tough to win games, but we will finish top in the end, even though it will be very complicated'

Alves: 'There are moments when you are all fired up and you aren’t going to go around saying please and thank you, but there was no racist insult and certainly not from Cesc who is a great guy and would never do that. I’m fed up with all this business about players saying I only reacted because you provoked me – if I reacted to every provocation I’d be going for an early bath every game'

Alves: 'You only miss penalties if you take them. Messi’s qualities are about much more than a missed penalty. It’s just a one off and there’s no need to go over it any more'

- Totally agreed, Dani. As a football player and a defender myself, you always try to wind the best rival players up so they underperform. Kanoute is an experienced footballer who obviously knew he had to do something to get that ONE point from the Camp Nou.

I surely don't agree with him delaying Messi's penalty kick, getting sent off after coming in as a substitute or accusing Cesc of being racist. But it's part of football.

The best thing for FC Barcelona is move on and start focusing on Granada.

THE GAME AGAINST SEVILLA IS OVER, TALKING ABOUT IT WON'T IMPROVE THE 0-0 RESULT!!!!!!
