Iniesta: Title important, not record

Andres Iniesta says that Barcelona’s focus has been to win the League title, not to match the points record for a season.

The Catalans were crowned Spanish League champions this weekend, whilst their 2-1 win at Atletico Madrid leaves them on course to match Real Madrid’s record last season of 100 points.

Post-match, though, Barca’s midfielder reflected that the latter is not something the players are overly concerned with.

“We’re not focused on breaking the record for points won in a season, we approach each match with the same eagerness to win, but it’s not our objective – we only want to be champions,” reflected Iniesta afterwards.

“It was an evenly matched game, there weren’t big chances for either side, but in the end we turned the game around and we won all three points.

“The most important thing is that we’re League champions.

“Winning the League like this is different, but we’re very happy, now it’s time to enjoy it with out fans and our families.”
