Barcelona coach Valverde: Media noise hasn't changed my Riqui Puig opinion

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has again sought to ease the hype around Riqui Puig.

Puig could see action in the Supercopa against Sevilla.

Valverde said, "My thoughts of him have not changed because of the media noise.

"He has great qualities, knows exactly how we play and he has rhythm but everything takes a while.

"We have high hopes for him and are looking forward to seeing how he performs in a game that is not a friendly."
