Bilbao is history, time to move on!!! >> Read My Mind


Cesc Fabregas: 'The Athletic Bilbao game was very difficult, we had to put a lot of effort in, there was a lot of rain, and the fans were fantastic. The pitch was really wet, it was difficult, the last two goals were defensive errors. Bielsa, their coach, is very good, we know that they will have a fantastic season'

Cesc Fabregas: 'Even though it’s not the most important thing I’m very happy for the goal. The most important thing is to help the team, now we have to focus on Tuesday’s match against Hospitalet'

Víctor Valdés: 'Draw in San Mamés. Another very important point for the league. A bit sad we didn’t take the game'

Dani Alves: 'Great team effort, prouder than ever to have such teammates!!'

Thiago Alcántara: 'Amazing atmosphere and amazing game in San Mamés despite the draw! We’re proud of the game we played!'

Andrés Iniesta: 'Great game in San Mamés even though we didn’t get the three points, [it’s] a very difficult stadium where they pressure you'

Carles Puyol: 'We weren’t able to get the three points in a very exciting and vibrant game for the spectators. Now we have to continue working'

- Despite the fact that many fans seem to be feeling down after yesterday's result, we need to put it into perspective. A difficult match at arguably the most difficult away match FC Barcelona will have this season: Facing the strongest home team in the pouring rain, it felt like a David against Goliath battle at times.

Let's keep working, focus on improving. No regrets, simply lessons learnt.

THE BILBAO MATCH IS OVER, LET'S MOVE ON!!!!
