The players celebrating at thel Vicente Calderón / MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

Sergio Busquets won his fifth league title on Sunday and his experience lends weight to his insistence that: “the league is the most important competition because it lasts all year and it is a reward for persistence throughout the year. The Champions League is more prestigious, but the league is the most important”.

The squad celebrated on the pitch at the Vicente Calderon, where Jordi Alba explained: “this is a day to enjoy because this league really took some work”, whilst Rakitic claimed: “we always had confidence in ourselves”.

After the game, other players also spoke to the media in the Mixed Zone:
