Rafael Yuste: "It is a dream come true"


Rafael Yuste believes that FC Barcelona's win against Real Madrid in the Bernabéu was an "historic moment for the club" and believes that trophies will follow despite wanting to remain cautious as he explained "the time will come for that".

The sporting vice-president of the club was delighted with the 2-6 victory win and spoke to Barça TV about his emotions after such a memorable performance from the team. "It is a dream come true," he explained. "Many people were touched by that result because it was an historic moment for the club."

Important step

"On Saturday we took an important step towards winning the league and to allow us to continue pushing ahead with a very important project for the club's future." Yuste did not want to predict when the title could be secured as he continued: "I believe in remaining confident and have faith because I believe that we will win the league. I would like to win it as soon as possible and if it can be at home then even better, but I do not want to put pressure on the squad. When the moment comes we will secure it."

Guardiola a good choice

Appointing him was not a risk at all because we knew very well that this was a man that was capable of doing what he has done. But we are all very proud of him."

"We learned from our mistakes"

Just under a year ago, Barcelona were beaten in the Bernabéu and now they have been back and recorded an incredible win. "That was a hard day and we learned from the mistakes," Yuste explained. "Now we have to look forward and try to maintain this plan because everyone is excited by it."

Optimistic for Europe

With the semi-final against Chelsea approaching, Yuste looked ahead to the second leg at Stamford Bridge. "I think that we play like we know we can and we maintain our form then things can go very well at Chelsea," he added.
