"I have no doubt that we played a complete match. We played at a very high level," declared Luis Enrique with sheer satisfaction after his team dispatched a very good Atlético Madrid side. The 3-1 final reflected a great performance by the team, which included goals from Barça's three-headed monster, aka Neymar, Messi and Suárez. "The fans enjoy watching games like these," he said.

Despite the big win, Luis Enrique refused to allow a state of euphoria to take hold. "All victories strengthen a team, but it's just three more points and the season is very long," he warned. He says he knows his team. "When we win everyone is happy, but the team is the same whether we win or not."All victories strengthen a team, but it's just three more points and the season is very long.

The match at Camp Nou, as usual, wasmarked by high intensity and a fast pace. "When you play Atlético you know that you're playing a strong team. I like them, but today we were better," he said.

The 81,658 spectators at Camp Nou provided a great atmosphere for 90 minutes, and Luis Enrique thanked them in the press room: "The fans were incredible. I love that people are so intothe team, they make us stronger." Then he added: "I've never seen fans questioning the team." Trying to sidestep recent rumours, he was blunt: "The shield, the dressing room, Camp Nou and the fans are the leaders of this team."
