Seydou Keita Refutes Suggestions That Barcelona Have A Small Squad

Seydou Keita believes Barcelona's squad is not too small.
Barcelona midfielder Seydou Keita has dismissed claims that the Blaugrana have a small squad and insists that they can win the league as well as other competitions this season.

“The squad is not too small. We have good players behind us and in the reserves, who are able to help us at any moment of the season," Keita said in a press conference after a training session at the Ciudad Deportiva on Thursday.

"So, there’s no shortage and as long as we have no injuries, this will be a good year for us.

"[I feel] very happy. I came here three years ago and I feel at home. I’ve got no problems and I have a good feeling about things."

The former Sevilla midfielder also gave his thoughts on the league title race in Spain.

“Since the first day I came to the club, they have told me that draws aren’t good enough for Barca. So we have to carry on doing things well and trying to win every game we play.

"I couldn’t say anything at this moment [whether the league will be a two-horse race like last year]. There are teams like Valencia, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid that have a chance of being up there with us. I don’t know if it’ll be a more open championship than last season."
