"Barcelona always had a clear philosophy about what their players had to do, both on and off the pitch. Technique was, and still is, valued above everything else. It was hard work too—very competitive and demanding. As well as football, we learned the responsibility of schoolwork too. If you didn’t make the grades at school, you were out. I was up at 5 a.m. some days to finish my homework or prepare for exams. The same goes for anyone failing to act with the club’s general principles of respect, teamwork and humility. No matter how good you were, if you didn’t follow the club’s moral code, you had no future at Barcelona."
