Pep about Alexis

"He has always played well. Also in Barcelona. But there normally when you play with Messi... all the others are one step back. That's why maybe there was people saying he wasn't reaching his full potential there, because the highlights were always for Messi. However, he helped us a lot".

"His position now, centre-forward, is perfect for him. At Barcelona I couldn't help him too much because I played him down the wing". 

"He is a fighter, has personality, he's a winner and has a lot of class".
