Barcelona fullback Dani Alves has dismissed criticism of coach Tata Martino's playing style.
Alves was asked about the controversy ahead of tonight's Champions League clash with AC Milan.
â€śWe will defend our style of play to the death because itâ€™s what made us the best team in the world,â€ť said Alves.
â€śBefore we were monotonous, and it made things easier for our rivals, now weâ€™ve introduced a variation which is giving us good results.
â€śThe only thing thatâ€™s different now is that we donâ€™t need 18 to 20 passes to reach our rivalsâ€™ goal, weâ€™re more direct."
