Sr Rosell was practically the first person to congratulate the team on their win as he greeted them in the stands, but he explained: "it might look easy to keep on winning titles and keeping the players motivated, but it isn't. Tonight the team and the manager gave a great impression of commitment and values. We have two titles in the bag already".

Fans' good behaviour

After praising the Club's fans who were at the ground - "our fans are well behaved and have a lot of common sense" – the President admitted the pitch for tonight's game: "was not in the best of condition and that affected us because of our style of play, but that's part of the game and you just have to accept it".

Praise for Cesc

Sandro Rosell also stressed how well Cesc Fabregas, who got tonight's second goal, has fitted in at the Club: "he just arrived and settled straight in. Before the team collected the Cup tonight he said to me 'it's lucky I came before the 31st, or I would have missed all this'. His signing was a good move from our technical staff and the directors involved in his transfer".
