FC Barcelona players jubilant after Copa del Rey triumph at Real Sociedad

Sergio Busquets, Sergi Roberto, Ivan Rakitic and Jasper Cillessen speak after a 1-0 win at Anoeta sets things up perfectly for the second leg at Camp Nou

The FC Barcelona players react to the fabulous 1-0 win away to Real Sociedad in Thursday night’s Copa del Rey quarter final first leg:

Sergio Busquets

“We were as solid in attack as we were in defence. But there’s still the second leg and we know what a quality team they are.”

“We haven’t won here for many years. So so we’re really pleased with the result.”

Sergi Roberto

“We needed a win at this stadium. We knew what deep pressure they created against us last time we came here and so we looked to play things a bit more directly and it worked. The goal came after a long move”.

“We’re on a really good run. We have to keep winning games and playing well”.

Ivan Rakitic

“We deserved to win this game. We played really well”.

“My trust in Luis Enrique is as strong as it’s always been. I live for football and the coach knows me better than anyone. All I can do is keep working hard to show him what I am capable of”.

“I want to renew my contract and stay at Barça for a lot more years”.

Jasper Cillessen

“We played well and got a very important result”.

“A Barça goalie has to know how to play with his feet. I am already used to doing that from my time at Ajax and for Holland. That’s why they signed me. Even so, I still have to keep working on it”.
