“What the game today tells us is that football isn’t just about playing well. I am happy, and we have the demand to take another step forward. The fans were amazing, above all when we went behind. They stuck with us. When Espanyol scored, we responded with better play, and that’s because of how the fans supported the team. We knew that it was going to be a night of emotions.”
