"It was a different game and it's over now. The opposition were playing for everything today, but we played our own game.

Evaluation of LaLiga and thoughts on the Champions League
"We've won a major trophy. There are 38 matches and to come out on top is great. Why wouldn't I think that we couldn't come back against City. We're going to fight for it until the last second. That's for sure, but now it's time to rest because the run in has taken a tremendous effort from everyone".
"We need a few days to relax. We have to disconnect and rest up. We’ll think about that game when we return to training. We’ll have 10 or 15 days to think about it. Now we have to switch off from football”.
"We’re all going to do our best, especially those who take care of the players’ physical wellbeing, to make sure he doesn’t feel any discomfort. He’s been feeling a bit after playing and I hope he can get back fully fit after the rest to play in the Champions League".
"He’s young and talented, but it’s been a tough season with injuries and other things that have happened. We have to trust in him. We’ll see next year”.
