Vázquez happy with win, sad over loss


Víctor Vázquez made his first start for the first team in tonight’s Champions League game at the Camp Nou.

The reserve team striker was naturally delighted to have made his official debut but was “sad and upset by the final result, because it’s never nice to lose”.

“We played well, but we were a bit sloppy at the back and they caught us on the counter” said Vázquez on the last game before the clásico with Real Madrid, and one which Víctor Vázquez said “the reserve team will also be following very closely”.

As we shall see below, all of the players were annoyed that the twenty match unbeaten run has come to an end, but also said it was far more important not to dwell on that but instead to focus on the forthcoming visit of Real Madrid, in which their place at the top of the table can be consolidated in style.

“The circumstances didn’t help, because we’d already secured the top sot. But we gave a good image and we needn’t worry”.

“The streak had ended, but it was better to end it today rather than next Saturday”.

“I don’t think the change of manager at Madrid will affect things. I’m not thinking about anything other than ourselves and getting the three points”.

“My goal was an anecdote. The important thing is for the team to win and that wasn’t the case today”.

“You never like losing. The team is doing things well, but it’s goals that count and Shakhtar took their chances better”.

“I don’t care who we meet in the second round. If we want to win the Champions League we have to beat all the best teams in Europe”.

“I don’t know whether the situation with Madrid will affect them, but the sure thing is that they’ll be coming here to win”.

“Anybody would be excited about playing in a Barça v Madrid game. It’s a different game, with a great atmosphere, but I don’t think I’ll be nervous. I’ll just be ready to help the team if I have to”.


“It is always tough to lose a game at home, but we should start thinking about our next game, which is much more important”.

“The game was a bit cold, a bit of everything was missing. We had the ball but we didn’t know how to finish things off”.

“It doesn’t matter who we play next in the Champions League because every game is difficult at this stage of the competition”.

“The game against Madrid is very important for the team. Juande Ramos is a very good manager but we expect to win”.


“I scored a good goal, but the result was a shame”.

“I’m sorry, especially because the young players looking to make the first team fought so hard. They all put in a lot of enthusiasm”.

“It is always a pleasure to wear this shirt and it means always going out to do your best. Now we have to think about the next game and think about winning again”.

“You don’t need any motivation to play against Madrid, the opponent is enough to that in itself. But anyway, whatever situation they arrive in, they’re always dangerous”.


“We have to take the positive things away from this. Despite the loss we had attitude. We should also thank the people that did come to the ground”.

“Playing in a Barça v Madrid match is always nice, but at the end of the day they are just three more points we have to get”.


WEB_20.jpg“I was very happy to play again, but my joy was not complete”.

“Eight months of injury are a long time. Although I’ve been working for three months, it is as if you aren’t really back until you’ve played again”.

“There is a very good playing dynamic in the squad and the results and the forthcoming game against Madrid are added motivation”.
