‘We’ll remember this for years’

Andoni Zubizarreta enthused that Barcelona ‘didn’t let Milan think’ during their 4-0 Champions League win on Tuesday evening.

The sporting director spoke to the media after his team’s turnaround win in the Last 16, which secured an aggregate 4-2 win.

“We will remember this for years. From the very first minute we pressured them really well high up the pitch and we didn’t let them think,” commented the former goalkeeper.

“They’ve shown us why they are in the Champions League, but I believe we played an excellent match. We were very organised going forward, we had rhythm and a lot of continuity.

“I’m very happy for all of them. We saw a lot of positive things and it’s worth sitting down and analysing it all when we’ve calmed down a bit.

“Messi’s two goals were great for the team, Villa’s was very important and Alba made everyone’s dreams come true.

“But, we’re in the quarter-finals, there’s a lot left and on Sunday we play against Rayo Vallecano.”

For Zubizarreta, Sergio Busquets was a notable performer.

“His match was amazing because it’s the style of football that is taught in our youth system.”
