Coach Tata Martino
We played two good games, we played well, we were serious. Our first game was tougher at times because we played against City,” said Martino, who declared that “we can’t be carried away by today’s game. Sometimes we lose points against teams that don’t have as much money as us, but what we did do today is what we should always do: win and play well.”
“Moments like these need to be reaffirmed by consistency in form,” said Martino. He added that Barça, who are four points behind Madrid and one behind Atlético, “will fight to the end. Finally, he noted that his objective “is to do the best possible job with a star-studded team” and that “it’s not easy to manage given the amount of big-name players, but it is easier thanks to the people I work with.”
