Luis Enrique: The faith of the team was key
The manager highlights the importance of the fans and feels the manner of this victory wil boost the team going into the final stretch
After eventually catching his breath, Luis Enrique was kind enough to share his thoughts on the epic 6-1 win over PSG which seals the team’s passage to the last-eight of the Champions League.
As well as the magic on display for all to see, the manager made a point of stressing the belief of everyone involved with the club to get the job done.
“The joy we gave to all Barça fans is dedicated to all those who had faith, who supported us each day, especially in the tough moments, after losing in Paris.”
“The key was the faith in the team and the fans right until the 95th minute. We started really well, constantly recovering the ball, but not many clear chances on goal. But defensively, despite all risks taken, we pulled off a near perfect game.
“We remain alive in all competitions, our objective is to win them all.”
“It is a night which is difficult to sum up in words. It was like the script of a horror movie, with a spectacular start, and a spectacular Camp Nou.”
“We ran an infinite number of risks in defence. It is a victory of faith. We were somewhat rushed in attack but very good in defence.”
“This sport is unique, crazy, no Barça fan will ever forget this night.”
“This team has shown it knows how to win, because we also know how to lose. This win is dedicated to all our fans, especially those who really showed us support after the 4-0 (defeat in Paris).”
“Qualifying in such a way gives us a massive boost ahead of the rest of the knockout rounds.”
