Sylvinho: “We deserved to win from the start”


FC Barcelona maintained their winning run and made it ten victories out of ten by beating Benidorm in the Copa del Rey on Tuesday evening.

“We have prepared well,” Sylvinho explained. “The coach advised us well and told us that we had to focus for games like this. We have gone out and started well and it just a shame that we could not score more goals.”

The match was won 0-1 thanks to a second half goal from Bojan Krkic. Below is what some of the players had to say.


“I am very happy to have made my debut, it is the best. I will continue to work to have more opportunities, that is the aim.”

“This type of game is always difficult and even more so if you play for the first team.”

“I am happy that the coach chose me and he seems the same as he was last year with the B team.”

Gerard Piqué

“The quality of the team was evident and we knew how to mix that quality with a bit of aggression and that will give us more points than we won last year.”

“Everyone deserves the credit. The coach especially does because he gives us the inspiration to go out and win.”

“We cannot become accustomed to winning by a big scoreline in each game because winning 5-0 is difficult. It is more important just to win.”

Sergio Busquets

“We played well in the first half. They defended in numbers and were close together and we had a number of chances, but the ball would not go in. The second half started in the same way, but the goal allowed us to relax. It was just a shame that we could not increase the lead.”

“With every game we show that the team is playing well and that we all help each other. That would explain the ten consecutive wins.”

“Bojan is a decisive player. He has an eye for goal and with more time he will always play like that.”

“Málaga will be a difficult team to beat. Playing away is always difficult and they will also go into the game in a positive mood with four consecutive victories.”

Victor Sánchez

“We know that every game is important. We have to go out and try and win them all and be confident from the first minute.”

“Sergio Busquets and I have known each other for many years, since our days at Jàbac Terrassa. That is why we are so confident on the pitch and we understand each other and only need a quick look to find each other.”


“I am very happy because we have secured another win. I am very pleased with the goal and with the work of the team.”

“It was a game that we have to be focussed on from the start as we all want to qualify for the next round.”

“There are still no easy games. We have complete respect for our rivals and we always go out to try and win.”

“Sometimes you miss the easier chances and score the more difficult ones. I will remain calm and confident.”
