Messi: “We already have the Cup and we are in the fight for LaLiga”

Leo Messi, who was named MVP of the final of the Cup, did not want to talk about his future. The Argentine was exultant after winning his first title as first captain. These are your impressions.


Yes. Happy to get the title. We have suffered a lot in all the games. It is always nice to lift a title.

His first title as captain?

Very special because it is the first cup as captain in the club of my entire life.

Do you have the feeling that Barça is far superior?

We knew that Athletic was going to start 4-4-2 and that they would play against us, taking advantage of their cons. We have had patience to create our spaces. We moved them in the first part and in the second they were more tired and they have dropped a bit, and we went up one more gear.

Too bad there is no audience …

It's very weird not being able to celebrate it with people or with my family. It is the situation that we have to live.

How is the season going?

It has been a difficult year for us. It was very important to win the Copa del Rey and we still have LaLiga. It is being a year of transition, different, with new and very young people, where it was difficult for us to start. We lost points for innocence and lack of experience. We have gotten into the fight because Atlético have lost points. A lot will happen between now and the end of the season in LaLiga.
