Dani Alves: “A Cup to treasure”


Dani Alves told us after the match, “this was a spectacle to remember…moments like these don’t come round again and you work for a long time for days like Wednesday”.

This is Dani’s first silverware with Barça but as he told us he hopes there’s more to come: “It was a wonderful festival of football. You have to live every match and every moment as if it were your last. We hope this will be the first of many”.

Here are some of the players’ comments after the Kings Cup Final:
