Yuste is confident


The vice-chairman for sports is “absolutely convinced” that the team is “going along the right lines” and has complete faith in the players and the manager.

Txiki Begiristain has gone straight to Lyon from Düsseldorf, so it was vice-chairman Rafael Yuste who spoke to the press at El Prat airport before Barça left for France. “We’re as confident as we’ve been right from the word go,” he said. “I’m absolutely convinced we’re going along the right lines.”

Derby shock

Work is key to success

Asked about the first leg in Barça’s last 16 CL tie with Lyon, the vice-chairman said that “being in the Champions League is a great pleasure. It’s a two-leg knock-out tie where we’ve got to do what we’ve done so far, and that’s work, work and work.”
