“I hope Leo can play 100 more matches in Champions League for Barcelona"
Jordi Alba appeared in press conference just before Luis Enrique. “Barcelona are always motivated to win all competitions," said the left-back. He also assessed the fact that Leo Messi will play the 100th match in Champions League. Here you have his best statements:
"We are willing to keep winning. So tomorrow we have to do a great match."
“Barcelona are always motivated to win all competitions, but we can’t be obsessed with the fact of winning Champions League two times in a row for the first time.”
Win vs Atlético
“It was important to win vs Atlético. They are a big opponent.”
“Piqué is a leader in and out of the fields. He is one of the best center-backs in the world. When he plays, we have more confidence, but we trust all the center-backs we have in the squad.”
“I don’t think match vs Roma in Gamper Trophy can be taken as reference. It was preseason. They will be now more motivated.”
Messi or Cristiano?
“Compare Messi and Cristiano? No. Cristiano is a fantastic and complete player, but what Messi has done so far can’t be done by anyone else. He is one or five steps above the others.”
“I hope Leo can play 100 more matches in Champions League for Barcelona. I hope he scores again in Stadio Olimpico like he did in the 2009 Champions League final.”
