Coach Luis Enrique reacts:
“I think we played a spectacular finalagainst top opponents like Juventus. We created more chances than them and I think we were better. We deserved to win the final.
“We played 60 games, with a record of 50 wins, four draws and six defeats. I congratulate the players. Their quality and solidarity are indisputable. FC Barcelona is the best club in Europe in the last 10 years.”
“You do not win every game easily. We had to suffer against a very good Juventus. Buffon was his usual self: very good. At the beginning of the second half Juventus pressed us and drew level. That was our toughest moment.The first half was ours.”
“When you come to a Club like Barça, you know you are here to win. It’s a dream come true and I’ve done it with the team of my dreams. I’ll never forget this”
“I always try and do my best to help the team. I was lucky that the rebound off Buffon came to me and I put it away to calm the team down before Neymar finished things off at the end”.

“We played a great game and we deserved the win for all the work we have put in over the season. I’d also like to congratulate Juventus, because they put in a good performance too”.
“Tonight’s goal has to be the most important of my career. I’m happy to have helped the team because it’s hard to come into a side like Barça and win a place”
“I can’t believe the end of the season I’ve had. It’s magnificent. The team, the fans, the people who are here in Berlin with us tonight and all our supporters who come to the Camp Nou, they all deserve this”.
“This generation is making history. It’s not easy to win the treble and both players and fans have to make the most of it. I’m leaving, but I am sure they will continue to achieve great things”.
“After I lifted the trophy I felt nostalgic, because I know I’ll never wear this shirt again. I’ve been very happy and I’ve given all I can, I can’t ask for any more. I am happy and proud”.
“It’s a crazy, happy atmosphere at the Club after taking our second treble – that’s something unique and all Barça fans should be celebrating, particularly when you think of where we were. Tonight, Juventus played a great game, but we were the better team – this side has a great future ahead of it”.
