Luis Enrique made eight chnages but the result was yet another win / MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

FC Barcelona beat Levante by a mighty 5-0 scoreline at the Camp Nou on Sunday. It was their eleventh win in a row – one of the best streaks the team has had for a long time.

Manager Luis Enrique discussed the match with the press after the final whistle:

On the euphoric mood:

“The players are by no means over-euphoric at the moment. They know how hard it is to win titles”.

“But I love seeing that the fans are so euphoric. That’s a key factor and makes us feel more optimistic”.

“The number of wins in a row is not important. What matters is that they’ll help us to win titles”.

On the 5-0 win against Levante:

“We had a great second half. We weren’t quite as balanced in the first”.

“The win was a huge boost for our morale as a team and for the players”.

On squad depth:

“Having so many top quality players in the team means you can easily rotate players”

“It shows just how many resources we have. I’d say our resources are practically unlimited”.

On Pedro:

“It’s not that he never loses his form, it’s that he does so many things for us”.

“He has been, is, and will be important to us. I’d like to play him more often but I know that whenever we need him he’s ready to deliver”.

Bartomeu pleased with improvements

President Josep Maria Bartomeu was also pleased with the display against Levante. “There are no easy opponents”, he said after the game. “Teams come here to defend and play on the counter attack. But Barça always want to score and score a lot. The team’s improved and we saw that again today”.

He added that “Messi goes from record to record. He really wants to please. We’re only just starting the second half of the season, but Messi has been on spectacular form”.

Bartomeu also spoke about his appearance in court this week “I had to make a statement before Judge Ruz”, he explained. “I said everything he asked me to say. It was very long, but there was a mutual respect. There have been misunderstandings these last few days. If we have mentioned Rosell it’s because he was the artifice of the deal. Without him, Neymar wouldn’t be at this club. We all went there to show that Barça has committed no crime. We just wanted to sign somebody like Neymar and now we’re enjoying him.”
