These are the words of Pep Guardiola (Manchester city coach) to Riqui Puig (Barcelona Midfielder)
"Iniesta did not start until he was 24 years old. People think playing for Barca or leading it is easy. Everything has difficulties. He is a strong boy, he has qualities, it is a matter of persistence. Complain little and move on. Football will always end up giving back to you if you're determined to keep going".

The Manchester city coach said, it is a matter of persistence.
In getting to your desired goal in life, persistence is a main key. it means continuity when a difficult task appear on your road to success.
You can also say persistence means not giving up.

My words of advice to you all is that -Be Determined on your goal, You can achieve the impossibility.


It is the best advice that Riqui can get right now. As a matter of fact, leaving Barcelona for the sake of getting playing time would actually get him nowhere. Puig is totally suited for Barça's style of play and just like Iniesta did at the age of 24, I'm sure he'll break into the squad if he remains like this if not even sooner than that

Riqui has to make his deision, but he should remember the words of pep "Football will always end up giving back to you if you're determined to keep going".
