Martin Braithwaite has previewed Barcelona‘s Wednesday night friendly against RB Salzburg, where the Blaugrana will continue their pre-season preparations and where the Danish striker is hoping for some game time.
After he didn’t come off the bench against Stuttgart, Braithwaite wants to play in this match.
“It’s been good, although obviously I came back later from vacation,” he said of his first week of pre-season in an interview with the club’s official media.
“I got to Barcelona and didn’t even open my bag, as I had to leave again direct to Germany.
“It’s been good, getting into the mindset of being back and working out.
“I’m looking forward to the game tomorrow and hopefully getting some minutes there because now I’m feeling ready.
“I’m looking forward to finishing our preparation well and to having a good season.
“It’s going to be a good test. They’ve been playing Champions League the last couple of years and they’re an offensive team who like to pressure high. So, it’s going to be a good game for us.”
Braithwaite also explained that he is excited to have fans back at the summer’s friendlies and he is looking forward to seeing the stands filled when LaLiga Santander resumes too.
