Montanier ‘proud’ after Barca win

Real Sociedad boss Philippe Montanier admitted he was 'proud' of his players after they condemned Barcelona to their first loss of the season.

The Erreala came from 2-0 down to defeat the Catalan club 3-2 at Anoeta on Saturday night.

And the French Coach has conceded that even though Tito Vilanova's side had Gerard Pique sent off in the second half, it was a deserved win.

“I am really proud of my team,” he told a Press conference. “We have tried everything to win and have fought hard.

“Hopefully this win will give us confidence to take the next leap forward.

“Even when we were 2-0 down, my boys never gave up. We were fantastic. That win is a gift to the fans.

“Barca are a great team, even with 10 men,” he added. “They could play the entire season with 10 men.

“We knew we had to play a great game to win, and that's exactly what we did.”
