Ernesto Valverde: 'Barcelona do not need to alter tactics'

Barcelona v Levante- La Liga

A fascinating insight into Ousmane Dembele's summer transfer to Barcelona has been revealed this evening, courtesy of respected German journalist Raphael Honigstein.

However, while the arrival of Dembele marked a huge plus for Barca in terms of their summer business on the transfer front, one massive failing on the part of the La Liga leaders was not managing to secure a deal for Liverpool crown jewel Philippe Coutinho.

Coach Ernesto Valverde picked Dembele on the right side of the attacking three midfielders in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Levante, a set-up he last used at Athletic Bilbao. "We're talking about a spectacular player and little by little his performances are going to get better".

"He can play in a lot of different positions and can adapt well to our style of play". He scores, he can shoot.

"We hope he can play well for us on many days". It's a coach's job to speak about his team.

Missouri races past Georgia in second half
They needed to against Georgia, one of the country's best teams at defending the three. "I'm really proud of him". Missouri made 57.1 percent of its shots in the second half after hitting 26.7 percent of them in the first half.

Coutinho, meanwhile, will have to wait three weeks to make his debut for his new club after his medical showed that the Brazil global was suffering from a thigh strain. We're always trying to win and make our fans happy. "You have to have patience because he's very young, but he's going to make us better, he has tremendous qualities", Alba told Gol TV.

Barcelona was held to a 1-1 draw at Baladios in their first leg R-16 tie with Celta Vigo, while Celta Vigo drew 2-2 at the Nou Camp in La Liga earlier this season.

"I haven't won it [the Copa del Rey] and from an individual standpoint I want to win the Copa del Rey, although the players have", said Valverde, who would not confirm reports Barca are preparing for the imminent departures of Javier Mascherano and Arda Turan. Tomorrow we want to go out and win the game.

"He has the facility to play in space, can play inside or on the wing".

"The hardest thing during this time was maintaining the concentration to recover quickly, I need to have a lot of patience to integrate myself into the team bit by bit".
