Barcelona manager Quique Setien has been talking about how his players are feeling ahead of next week’s return of La Liga.

The Catalan giants will resume their title defence against Real Mallorca on Saturday, and Setien says the team are certainly not lacking for motivation.

“All of the players are very keen and very motivated to play,” he said.

“It’s been good for us, because the players have been resting. It’s been different to other years in their careers.

“The team look to have special motivation. I suppose that’s the same for every squad.”

Setien also spoken about how he feels the team need to win all 11 games if they are to be crowned champions and also added that Luis Suarez is “practically at full fitness” after recovering from knee surgery.
