Brazilian International and FC Barcelona right back Dani Alves sat down with Catalan sports papers Sport and El Mundo Deportivo while in South Korea. The World Cup and the upcoming season were two topics that were talked about at length. The first part of this article includes his conversation with Sport and the second part with El Mundo Deportivo.
The headline in Catalan sports daily Sport reads, “Mexico brands the friendly against Spain a ‘fraud.’” Thus, even before the game has been played, it is turning into a war of words. The problem facing the Spanish Federation is not unlike the one FC Barcelona faced when Guardiola declared that Messi would not play in the game against the K-League All Stars, yet agreed to let him play some minutes because of an agreement with the organizers. At the heart of the matter, now, is the contract signed by the Spanish Federation long before Spain became World Champions.
Catalan sports daily Sport posted some anecdotes about the match between the K League All-Stars and FC Barcelona. What follows is a translation of the article; the original can be found here.
Catalan based newspaper El Mundo Deportivo reported that Guardiola, once again, is angry with the Spanish Football Federation. The Barcelona coach had his reasons before, after the federation fined him an amount of 15,000 Euros because he described the referee and his assistant of the Almeria – Barcelona match last season as ‘liars’.

According to Catalán sports daily El Mundo Deportivo, FC Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has decided that Barça and Argentine International forward Lionel Messi (23) will not play in the International friendly scheduled for August 4th against the K-League All Stars. Should the Barça superstar not play at least 30 minutes, the club will have to pay a “fine” of 200,000 Euros, due to a contractual agreement with the league.
#1: Wenger says that he wants Cesc to get involved* (giving his opinion about his signing)
#2: Then he’s all ours! The other day he got wet by crying.

Cesc has been signed by Torrente
Torrente: You’re asking me if I have asked for permission from Wenger to make “Zecs” appear in my film?? No way!! I’m not asking anything from a “Frog”*!
Cesc: That’s what I’ll have to do…
*Pejorative to say “French”
