Luis Enrique is one happy man right now.
With every press conference after a win, Barcelona’s manager seems more and more delighted with his players and their accomplishments on the field. It was no different for the world-destroying 6-0 win over Getafe on Tuesday. And Lucho had some really high praise for his squad following one of the season’s best showings.
Enrique went as far as to call his team “unstoppable” if they continue to perform like they did today, and he sees his team in good spirits going into the home stretch of La Liga and the season as a whole. Lucho also commented on the performance of one Xavi Hernández, who enjoyed a bit of a revival evening against Getafe. Here is a few highlights of the coach’s post-match conference:
“I don’t remember ever seeing a game with quite so many spectacular goals. When the team is as effective as that, they’re unstoppable.”
“I want to congratulate the team. Things could have turned difficult today but the players resolved the situation in the best possible way”.
“We created a lot of chances, a lot of pressure situations. The team was well positioned”
“What I like are the things that enable us to create these goalscoring chances”.
“Who can guarantee that we’ll keep up this high standard of play? Football can produce all kinds of surprises”
“We’re not going to start taking it easy. We know there are still four games left to play. Are we’re up against a very dignified opponent in Real Madrid.”
“We’re not thinking about what might happen, we’re thinking about doing everything possible to make sure it happens.”
“We don’t only have a team that creates goalscoring opportunities. We also know how to defend. There is the attacking side to what we do, but also the defensive side.”
“There is still room for improvement. I don’t doubt that we can still get better. But I don’t remember ever seeing so many great goals in the same game.”
Xavi the legend
“I have known Xavi since I was a player and he was just coming up from the youth team. He’s a player from another galaxy and he can play as long as he wants. He’s very strong physically. Get the ball to him, and he’ll always get it back to you, he never loses that quality. We all know how much Barça means to him and he’ll decide to do what’s best for Barça” .
