Luis Enrique Martínez was speaking after the 3-1 win in Granada / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

Luis Enrique described the three points in Granada as an ‘objective fulfilled’, telling his post-match press conference that “this away win was very important after a tough Champions League match. Our aim was to get back within a point of the leaders, and that’s what we’ve done.”

On the playing surface: “I am very happy and satisfied with the work the players did in very special conditions. The teams have to be commended for the game they played on grass like that. They both tried to play a passing game, and that’s worth highlighting”.

On the style of play: “Opponents do different things in every game. In this match we tried to be more direct … And the team understood well what they had to do”.

On Luis Suárez: “Ever since he arrived, Suárez has been playing top class football and working very hard. He may look more spectacular now and people are seeing more of him, but he has always been a special player that does a lot for the team.

“The ball was rolling and bouncing badly and that made it more difficult to play”.

“We have less and less margin for error as the season goes on. But I am happy with the way the team played. We were playing a great team. It’s small details that make the difference when you play these teams”.

“We studied Barça and we knew we couldn’t give them any chances. We know that they’ll find any gaps you leave open”.
