He went on to say that over recent years, Barça have shown they can do the business and that the key success would be to “put in a strong performance,” below alluding to the side’s four wins from four in pre-season, before asserting that are “confident of winning the Super Cup.”

The Catalan also made reference to the club’s ups and downs. “The club hasn’t lost its pulling power,” he said, adding that “if we can bring in some new faces, all the better, it will give us more squad depth”.
