NEWS | 03/12/2016 | Alberto Navarro (Barcelona)“Ramos’ goal did not surprise me, he's got real personality and you can count on him in these games”, he added.
"They scored their goal in the second half, we let up a bit and they grew in confidence. It's a point but it doesn't feel like a win. We can be very happy with how we played against a very tough opponent. Now we have to rest up because we've got another match in no time at all”.
Blow to morale
“I don't think so. We've got a six-point advantage, but that won't change anything. This is a long-run thing and we have to work hard until the end. We're pleased with the point but we know that La Liga will be tough right to the finish”.
It's always Ramos
“It doesn't surprise me anymore. It's the way he is. He's got real personality and you can always count on him in these games. He never lets his head drop and he's motivated until the final minute. It's great for us”.
“It was a real collective effort. It's not an easy place to come and we were under pressure, but it's difficult for anyone. I'll underline the team's hard work. At the end, as always, Ramos is there to score and I'm happy for him, and we've managed to get something thanks to our belief until the final moment”.
“We brought Casemiro on because we wanted to freshen things up going forward with Luka and Mateo. We know what he can offer us. We got further forward in the second half and we changed things towards the end, operating with a 4-4-2 formation. We struggled against a great rival. It is not easy to get points here but we did so with character”.
“We know how key he is to the team and he played well. He is getting back into his rhythm little-by-little. He is doing well after suffering an injury”.
“He offers something different when the match isn’t going our way. When we played him we used the 4-4-2 setup and we know what he can offer us in terms of scoring goals. We are all in this together”.
“We can mix things up and we have a lot of different plyers who add something new within different tactical systems. That is the good thing about this team and today we saw the importance of each player. We are going to need all of these individuals right up until the end”.
