After winning the Spanish Super Cup with a 5-0 aggregate win against Sevilla, several members of the first team squad spoke to the press. Here’s our round-up of the post-match quotes:
“Both in the first half of the first leg and today we were a bit imprecise in the first half. But we made our chances in the second halves of both games while they could match us physically. I think we were the fair winners of the tournament”.
“I think we’ve signed a lot of players that have helped to make the squad deeper.”
“It was tiring out there, and I’m sure there will be changes against Betis. We’ll try to compete as well as we can.”
“I’m very pleased to win the title and to have been able to play. I’m happy to have made my official debut, happy with the game and happy with the work that my team-mates did.”
“I’m taking things slowly. I have only been here a week and a half and am still getting to know my team-mates. I have a lot of work to do, but I’m on the case. I’m processing things and learning how the team plays. That said, I felt really comfortable out there today”.
“I’m pleased to be playing and enjoying matches. I’ll try to adapt to whatever position the coach puts me in. At the end of the day, the most important thing is the result and being able to help my team-mates”.
“I was really happy to play in a game like that and to have won the first trophy. Luis Enrique has trust in me and I’m grateful for that”.
"Arda is a great player and it helps a lot to play alongside him. I’m here to help the team and do everything I can for the team”.
