Club captain Andres Iniesta spoke to the press on Saturday ahead of tomorrow’s Copa del Rey final against Sevilla.

With another title at stake for FC Barcelona a week after winning La Liga, the midfield magician gave his thoughts about the big game. Here is the pick of what he had to say.


“We enter the game in great condition and we are playing with the same motivation as always. I can feel the team is very enthusiastic about being able to win another cup.”

Winning the double

“It makes you enter the game with more confidence and enthusiasm because now we have the chance to take this season to a higher level.”  

Strong Sevilla

“We know that there will be moments in the game where we will suffer and not have it all our way but we feel capable of beating them, despite having a lot of respect for them.”

Opponent on a high

“They have also won a (Europa League) title and they have an added motivation. I see them as more of a threat than normal. We know that they are a team which complicate things for us as they have various ways of playing. It will be a tough final.”

Appreciating success

“Thankfully, in recent years, we have become accustomed to winning the league. But it evidently has great value,” before adding that “it has been a great season”.

Making history

“We intend to put in a complete performance, because we have a team that is used to playing in finals. We want to win it again to make the history of this club even greater. Never in my wildest dreams could I have dreamt this.”
