Quote of the Day: Dario Gradi

“You can’t do what Barcelona do if your players aren’t as good as their players. Although it looks easy, to receive the ball under pressure, it requires a really high level of skill. Plus you can’t teach the confidence, the mental side of that kind of play.”

In an interview to Guardian, Crewe Alexandra’s manager Dario Gradi, recently presented the “Contribution to League Football Award” at the annual Football League Awards,  hailed the FC Barcelona team as a “model” and noted that the Catalan club’s topnotch game isn’t easy to replicate.
