Bojan goals boost confidence


Barca's young striker scored twice on Tuesday night and he admitted that he'd found it hard to come back after injury, but that the goals would give him”a lot of self confidence”.

Once again, the younger players proved they can fill the boots of their more illustrious team mates and proof of Barca's ability to turn out home grown talent was the fact that all five goals were scored by ex-youth team players. Although in the goals, Andreu Fontàs and Jonatan Dos Santos also played well as Guardiola showed what a deep well of talent he has at his disposal.

Below are some of the players' post match comments:

“As a player you just want to play, that's what makes you happy. Now I just want to keep on working and be part of this team”.

“It might have deems an easy tie, but Leon played good football. The important thing was to get through to the next round”.

“Madrid's defeat shows that you always have to have humility”.

“I'm 19 and I have to keep improving and take the chance that come my way to feel an important part of the squad”.

“It's logical that Ibra plays a lot, as he's a world class star and cost the club a lot of money”.

“It's a knock out, but you have to respect your opponents, the fans and yourselves and treat it like a league game”.

“We always pressure high up the pitch. That's our way and we do it from the first minute to the last”.


“I'm happy again for a win and a goal. Thanks to my team mates and Andres who gave me a great pass that left me alone on the keeper”.

“We dominated the first half, but it was hard work. We were patient in the second and they tired – that's when the goals came”.

“I'm very happy for Bojan, because those two goals will be good for his confidence”.


“We played a good second half. They did well in the first half, but the physical effort told on them in the second”

“These are not easy games. Even though we were ahead from the first leg, you have to keep your focus”.

“I'm not interested in Madrid's defeat. Our philosophy is to concentrate only on our own game”.

“There weren't many people at the game, but those who came got behind us and enjoyed themselves”.

“Madrid's defeat just goes to show that you have to be very focussed on these games and have maximum respect for your opponents”.
