Before the match between Real Betis and Real Madrid, veteran Bravo accepted an interview and talked about his feelings when he was a goalkeeper in Manchester City and Barcelona.
Not all goalkeepers can play in Barcelona and Manchester City, maybe only those of us who have been in such a team can experience it. It is very simple to make a save in the penalty area and guard the city. But the situation is different in Manchester City and Barcelona, where the goalkeeper has to become a central defender. You have to clear the siege, launch an attack, and help the team build an advantage. Judging early, not all goalkeepers can do it by reading the game situation, but if the goalkeepers of Manchester City and Barcelona can't do this, it will be hard to come back. In addition, there are 100,000 fans watching you at the Nou Camp, and if you don’t know how to pass the ball, make them extra nervous. If you make a mistake, the fans will not easily forgive you. But I enjoy doing things that no one else can do.
The years in Barcelona have been great. I was able to share a locker room with good people and great players. So about me Barcelona I have many good memories. It was a wonderful team. I could play with Messi, Ter Stegen, Harvey, Alves, Pique, Busquets, Neymar, Suarez and Mascherano. We also respect each other very much.
For Guardiola, it is very important that the goalkeeper can control the ball and attack from the backcourt. But the most important thing is that you must be able to read the game and at the same time digest Guardiola's football philosophy. Maybe you touch the ball is great, but if you don't know the mechanics of the game and where to pass the ball, touching the ball will not help you.
Joining Betis was an easy decision for me. I chatted with my family and discussed the possible options at the time. My child also expressed his opinion, and finally we reached an agreement. We are very happy because I am about to go to a good club, a good country and a good city.
If Pellegrini brings you a plan, it means that he takes this matter very seriously, which is also his promise. I want to work with him and I believe I can learn a lot from him. We were also attracted by the beauty of Seville, and at the same time we heard good things about Betis.
I always watch Real Madrid games. They have many top players and they have always had the ambition to win all the victories. But more important than worrying about Real Madrid is that we have to consider whether we can do our own things well.
