Sergi Roberto commits to Barcelona wage reduction

Sergi Roberto has committed to signing a new deal with Barcelona on reduced terms.

Roberto spoke to La Vanguardia about various topics. He said he would renew his contract on a lower wage to help the club.

Asked if the players feel singled out by the fans for Leo Messi's departure, he replied: “What we feel is that a lot of people talk without knowing things. I, for example, am waiting for an offer from the club. My situation is different. I'm out of contract this season and I'll renew at a low price. We are helping. I don't understand the criticism we've got, it has no sense."

This season he will play in midfield. “I'm asked every year but now having two full backs and for how the training is going and the games, I see myself more in midfield. I want to play there but it's up to the coach of course."

Without Messi he thinks Barca “have to be more united than ever, more compact with and without the ball, press high together. If we can't make up Messi's 40 goals we'll try and score 30 but concede 10 less."
