Claudio Bravo reckons Barcelona as better in Reputation

Claudio Bravo reckons Barcelona as better in Reputation

Claudio Bravo reckons Manchester City might not be any bit behind Barcelona funds-wise, but, if the reputation is the basis of the comparison, then the latter would come first for sure.


Bravo was quoted as, “If you talk about the funds, I would say both are pretty even, but, if you talk about the status around the world, Barcelona is ahead there to be fair and that’s why scrutiny is also more at Barcelona.”

On his life at Etihad, the Shot-stopper said, “Changing your job location and changing it from one country to another is a challenge. You can’t just hang your kit bag onto your shoulders and take the plane to the new location. You are going to have to take your family there; you might struggle with the language and not only the language, but, many other things which you find yourself coping with from time to time.”

BRUCE COMPLAINS OF FITNESS ISSUES AT ASTON VILLA

BRUCE COMPLAINS OF FITNESS ISSUES AT ASTON VILLA

Aston Villa new manager Steve Bruce has raised issues regarding fitness at the club.


Bruce was obviously not too happy as the players tired out easily during the 1-1 draw with Wolves at Villa Park. The coach was smart not to condemn the regime employed by the former coach, Roberto Di Matteo.

“We tired badly, which was alarming,” he said. When asked if it was a fitness concern, he said:

“I think that’s an easy one and Iwouldn’t like to say that against any other manager, but it’s fair to say that some can be in better condition and I think that’s only right. That’s the difficulty when you have to make two substitutions through injury,” he added.

Bruce admitted that losing a lead can be linked with the fitness concern of the players.

“I can understand now why they concede late. It’s blatantly obvious. We’ll go to work on that. It’s very difficult in this league as obviously we’re playing again on Tuesday. We’ll do eveythig we possibly can to make us better equipped to go and play in the Championship,” he added.
