Barcelona coach Tata Martino insists Sergi Roberto has his admiration.

The midfielder has been linked with Manchester United as he continues to struggle to make a first team breakthrough at the Nou Camp.

"It might seem contradictory to say he's a phenomenal player and not play him, but remember there are Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Cesc also to consider," explained Martino.
