Barcelona - Espanyol

Barça boss Luis Enrique spoke ahead of the Catalan derby between Barça and Espanyol (Sunday, 20:45 CET). 

Iniesta talked about how special the derby is. How would you define it?

"I don't think it's anything out of the ordinary. There are derbies in every city. They are beautiful games to be involved in before, during and after".

After recent results, do think Barça are beginning to reach the level you expect?

"Throughout a season it's easy to be more positive when things are going well, but only pointing to good things is opportunistic. We're always looking to improve and I think we've been critical".

What's your opinion on Suárez's contract extension? Does it help with Messi's situation?

"Every contract renewal is big news for strengthening the club and our players. You'll have to ask Messi whether it helps".

Do you agree with video technology? 

"I'm in favour of video technology. The development of football has to go down that path. We'll have to see where we stop the play, but I agree with everything that helps referees - you can't always blame them".
