Alba: Martino has brought a lot

Jordi Alba has been impressed with new Coach Tata Martino, admitting that the tactician has brought ‘a lot of positive things’.

The Argentine was named as Tito Vilanova’s successor last month, and the defender has already noticed some differences during their preseason tour of Asia.

“He’s a great Coach who’s doing a lot of positive things,” Alba told reporters.

“I think it’s more or less the same. Perhaps he asks us to do some things different but it’s all very similar to what we were doing before.

“We are working hard.

“True, those of us who were at the Confederations Cup have only played half a game, but I think we’re OK. We’re working hard despite the heat and humidity.”
