Jordi Alba: "We hope that Neymar will be able to join us in the final”

Jordi Alba spoke ahead of the clash vs Guangzhou Evergrande in the Club World Cup semifinals

“We’re still feeling the jetlag a bit, but in the end all the teams suffer from this and I’m sure that we’ll get to the game on Thursday in perfect conditions.”

“The Club World Cup is a short competition but it’s very attractive. First we’ll focus on the semifinal, which I’m sure will be a very hard game and we’ll try to keep going the way we have been in the league, the Champions League and the Cup. We hope that it will go well. It’s a tournament I haven’t won yet, other teammates have [won] it already, but we all have the same desire to win it now.”

“Right now we’re focused on reaching the final, because it’s not going to be easy and then we hope that Neymar will be able to join us.”

“Last season was a great one, this one we didn’t win the Spanish Super Cup, but we have a chance to win another title now which is very important.”

“Today and tomorrow we’ll watch videos of Guangzhou, the coach already told us that they’re a strong rival. In the quarterfinal everyone thought that Club América of Mexico would go through. I’m sure they will be a strong rival which will make things difficult for us.”
