Ernesto Valverde spoke to the press following Saturday’s record-breaking 2-1 win against Valencia. Here are our favourite quotes, plus a selection of comments from the players.

“This was a red-letter day for us. It was essential to take this major step forward. To win it we needed heart out there on the pitch and to take the initiative with the ball.”

“These are three golden points, and now we only need seven to clinch the Liga title. We were able to regroup this week. And now we have the chance to win the Copa del Rey, and that’s another trophy that means a lot to us.”

“The unbeaten record is nice but the more important thing is that we have carried on winning.”

I’d rather not single out any players for their performance. Every player in the Barça squad is capable of doing his bit for the team.”
