      Barcelona’s boss talks Saturday’s showdown in Berlin while meeting reporters at his club’s Media Day

      Luis Enrique says this week’s Champions League preparations are business as usual  for his team, insisting Barcelona’s philosophy will remain unaltered for Saturday’s final with Juventus in Berlin.

      Speaking  to  the  media  yesterday,  he began: “We’ll prepare as we do for every game. We’ll  aim  to keep the ball and press as well as we can when Juventus have it.

      “Winning  the  Champions  League  would  signify  a  treble for us and it’s something  that  excites  everyone. It’s  just happened once in the club’s history, and this tells you how difficult it is to achieve.”

      The  45-year-old, who spent eight years at the Nou Camp as a player, admits he  is  wary  of  the  threat  possessed  by  a Juventus side brimming with quality, pinpointing Andrea Pirlo, Alvaro Morata and Carlos Tevez as men to keep a particular eye on.

      “I’m  concerned  about  everything  Juventus  have  to  offer. They possess quality  players. I hope Pirlo doesn’t have too much influence on the game, because we all know what he’s capable of doing.

      “They have great defenders who know how to get things moving out from the back. Morata’s been a big asset for the team and has a real nose for goal, while Tevez guarantees absolute quality.”
