Speaking on the many minutes of video analysis he and is teammates have to endure during an interview with TalkSport, Pablo Zabaleta has revealed that it sometimes all gets rather boring.

“His passion is to try always to improve, or to try to find the right way to attack,”

“We watch a lot of videos, and sometimes I know it’s a bit boring for some of the players to be watching videos every day, but for the players who really love football and enjoy watching … and I’m talking about 20 minutes of video, or 25 minutes, not an hour or two hours!”

Before the Argentinian international quickly praised the effect of the former Barca man.

“He’s always trying to improve the players and to improve the team,”

“He likes to play out from the back and for the player on the ball to have two or three options. He likes always to give you solutions and information. The way he prepares for games is just fantastic.”
