Jordi Alba: It’s a pleasure to be with Andres Iniesta


Jordi Alba spoke in the mixed zone after Barcelona won the Copa del Rey against Sevilla. Here’s what he had to say:

“We would all have signed up for the double at the start of the season. It’s clear we went out of the Champions League in the worst way, but that’s football. One bad day can be had by anyone and you pay a high price. I think the victory against Sevilla in this final is very important, the team needed it.

“We started with a lot of intensity, we had a lot of chances, above all in the first half. It was a very complete game, we were superior in every moment and happy with how it went.

“It has been and to this day it is a pleasure to share the dressing room with Andres Iniest. He’s the No 1 in his position and as a person, and the decision he takes will be welcome because he deserves it.”
