Rafinha trains recently at the Ciutat Esportiva. / MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

After FC Barcelona completed their training session on Friday morning, midfielder Rafinha sat in the press room at the Ciutat Esportiva to talk to the media about how things are going for him personally and for the team.

Here are the highlights of what he had to say:

His personal situation

“I've been getting better, getting more confidence, and I'd like to get more minutes. I'll grade myself at the end of the season."

“I feel quite comfortable in the team. I'm here to help."

"In order to keep getting minutes on this team you have to constantly be showing what you can do.”

The team's excellent play

“We've been getting better and better. There haven't been any big changes. We just feel better with each game we play.”

The venue for the Spanish Cup final

“Any stadium is good. If it were in Barcelona, we'd be playing at home but, wherever it is, it's still a final. The most important thing is to be there."

“It's normal that Real Madrid don't want their stadium to be used. We have a rivalry. I don't think Barça fans would like it if Real Madrid were to play the final here."

Brazil national team

“It'd be a dream to play for the Brazil national team. I'm working hard to get there."
