On the game:
“Napoli are one of the best Italian teams. We knew how to deal with them in the first half. I congratulated Gattuso after the match. I admire his work. The team has been good and we deserved the victory. We have overcome the opening minutes and in the second half Napoli didn’t create much danger.”

“Not everything can be done perfectly, the rival have their merit and you cannot control a game one hundred percent. We have beaten a team that has had a great season. The team has been very good. What we did was not easy.”

“We have to be optimistic, we are fine. Today, except for the first minutes, we have played an extraordinary first half, with good chances. We can look to the future with optimism, but we must keep in mind that we face great teams.”

On Lionel Messi:
“Messi played the whole game because he was able to carry on after the break. Leo never complains. He had some pain, but there shouldn’t be a problem. He was fine. We will analyze it, but there won’t be a problem.”

On the upcoming Bayern game:
“Bayern are a great team. It will be a great game. There are no favorites. We have the best player in the world, but Lewandowski has 13 goals in Europe this season. Any team can win.”

On Arthur Melo:
“I have already said what there is to say regarding Arthur. I have no comment.”

On not subbing on Riqui or Ansu:
“The circumstances of the game have led us to make certain decisions.”

On the unavailability of key players:
“Missing Busquets and Vidal was huge, but Rakitić, Sergi Roberto and De Jong have done an extraordinary job. We’ll see what we’ll do against Bayern Munich.”

Everyone has some kind of passion. For me, it is FC Barcelona. I started to write stories about the club I support in 2017, and have been lucky enough to be part of such a wonderful team.

Inter Milan announced the signing of Arturo Vidal who will join the Italian club after his medical tests. Barcelona heavy-weights Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez shared a message to the Chilean:

Lionel Messi: “I knew you from facing each other, and you always seemed like a phenomenon, but then I was lucky enough to meet you personally and you surprised me even more. It was two years of sharing a lot of things and you noticed a lot, the locker room will miss you. I wish you all the best in this new phase at your new club. Our paths will cross again for sure.”

Luis Suarez: “Having you as a rival was unbearable because of how great you are as a player, but having you as a teammate, friend, and knowing you as a person is even bigger! A pleasure to have been with a star player like you. I wish you all the best.”

Vidal played a total of 96 games for Barcelona, scoring 11 goals and making 10 assists during the two seasons he spent at the Catalan club.
