If something characterizes Pedro Martínez (Barcelona, 61 years old) it is that he does not cut a hair when it comes to offering his opinions. The Baxi Manresa coach also complies with this around the World Cup in Qatar.
Do you follow the World Cup?
I don't follow soccer much and I'm not following the World Cup either, although the other day I did see a good part of Spain's debut against Costa Rica because I was at the house of a friend who does follow it a lot.
Do you like Luis Enrique's leadership style?
Yes, because he is very direct, he is face to face and says a lot what he thinks.
Do you see yourself playing a streamer or do you rule it out?
Each one must know the pull he has. Luis Enrique proves to be a person open to changes and new styles of communication. Also, everything he says has a lot of echo.
There are those who compare the soccer team with Scariolo's basketball team from the last European Championship.
In what they do resemble is in the matter of youth. In the soccer team there is a good group of young people and that always provides motivation and in the basketball team we also saw young people who took a step forward.
What footballer transferred to basketball would be a good point guard?
Well, the one that comes to mind is Xavi in his football days because he was a player who always organized the team. From the current era perhaps Pedri.
Is there hypocrisy in criticizing the World Cup dispute in Qatar when in other areas there are also links with this country?
I see criticism of a country very well if a series of rights that we consider universal are not respected, but I would have liked the criticism to be just as widespread when Qatar was just a candidacy and not when the World Cup was already here.
