Following a convincing FC Barcelona display to win 3-0 at Osasuna on Saturday, Luis Enrique was in an understandably positive mood as he discussed the game with the press shortly after the final whistle. Here’s a round-up of the standout quotes from the pressroom at El Sadar:

  • “We deserved the win, we created plenty of chances. I’m really pleased with the match I saw and the performances from my players.”
  • “We knew from the start how difficult this game was going to be. But we kept our patience and the goalscoring opportunities soon started to come.”
  • “We deserved to be ahead in the first half, which would have made us calmer. That said, they also had a very good chance in the first half.”
  • Sergio León and Oriol Riera could have made this very difficult for us but apart a few isolated occasions, we had the game under control. We dealt with the difficulties well and convincingly.”
  • Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba both played really well. When you play as far forward as we do, the full-backs help to provide depth.”
  • Busquets was good too. He is one the players we most use to build up moves from the back. He’s a basic part of the plan”.
  • “We really should have settled this game in the first half, and the fact we didn’t raised their spirits. But we eventually managed to wear them down and were able to make them pay for that in the second half, when we were much more effective in front of goal.”
