Golden Ball

Pinto also spoke about FCB getting all three nominees for the Ballon d’Or. “The Barça system looks after its playing philosophy, and all three of them form part of that” he said. He was proud for all of them and added “whoever wins, it’ll be a reward for the whole squad”.

“We feel a bit hurt”

As for the controversial trip to Pamplona, Pinto defended his people. “It’s as if we’re to blame, but we were just victims like hundreds of other people … we just followed the Federation’s orders … and we feel a bit hurt by what happened.” But at the end of the day “it has made us feel stronger. The team responded”.
