Real Betis defender Bartra urges Junior Firpo to resist Barcelona

Real Betis defender Marc Bartra is urging Junior Firpo to stay.

Junior has been linked with Bartra's former club Barcelona.

"He is a player who has shown that he has a lot of potential, quality and the ability of being in the right place at the right time," said Bartra.

"He is fine at Betis at the moment and I hope we can continue enjoying him here."

Bartra was also asked about his new coach, Rubi.

"He is a very football person; he loves tactics and strategy. On a personal level I can say that he gave me a lot of advice during those years.

"He is one of those coaches that can make the club bigger and he is what Betis are looking for on a philosophical level.

"He is a great coach as he has demonstrated for several seasons and he has experience, while he is a great fit to the club due to his style and philosophy."
