Keita: "I have adapted to the way of playing"

Speaking to journalists after the league game against Sporting Gijón yesterday, Barcelona players Seydou Keita and Xavi commented on the match.


Keita
"It was a little difficult after having played in Monaco, on a bad pitch, for 120 minutes. We all wanted that first goal of Ibra to come because we need him. And if he can adapt quickly, the better for the team. To play at Barça, you need some time to adapt to the way of playing. I also had to go through it but I am very happy now."


Xavi
"The team has just won two super cups and it wasn't an easy game. The game could have become complicated but we have given everything. Sporting is a team that plays well but we kept everything under control. Generally speaking, we are working well and keeping the modesty. Ibra is a goalscorer and he likes to score. This was his first goal with Barça and we are happy for him because he's working hard."

Keita was a real power in the attacking midfield position. He and Bojan were the best yesterday.

Keita disappointed me a little last season especially when you think about how good he was in his last season for Sevilla, he was probably one of the best players in la liga that season, but he showned some promise yesterday and also in the pre-season

Keita was poor yesterday, and has been poor in almost every game in Barcelona.

He won a few headers that happened to win the game for us, and he ran a lot, but that's all. He's slow with the ball and mostly chooses the wrong option, he doesn't really understand how to run either, often blocks the space for other players.

Keita has been very impressive lately and won us the game yesterday! He also happens to be a very humble person on/off the field, and a team player, fitting Barca like a glove.

If there were a survey, 99 out of 100 people would say, Keita impressed against Gijon, and that one person that disagreed, would be David. Are you joking David? If not, your ignorant to say the least.
