‘Messi not Huesca’s only focus’

Leo Franco insists Huesca will not focus on marking Lionel Messi out of their match against Barcelona. “You’ll leave the others free…”

Huesca have begun their first-ever season in the top flight with a win and a draw but travel to Barca on Sunday – four years after they were thrashed 8-1 at Camp Nou in the Copa del Rey.

“We’re going to play one of the three most difficult games of the season, but we have weapons too,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“We’ll go to Camp Nou with conviction and desire. If you focus on just Messi, you’ll leave the others free.

“You have to be vigilant and that the player closest to him marks him. We have to be realistic, recognise our qualities and see where we can harm them, but we have our weapons.”
