Martino happy after La Real win

Tata Martino has praised his Barcelona side after they defeated Real Sociedad 4-1 on Tuesday evening.

Goals from Neymar, Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Marc Bartra gave the Blaugrana all three points at Camp Nou.

And the Argentine tactician was happy with his men, whilst also commenting on the performances of several players.

“We've played a very good game,” he told reporters. “The way we played in the first half was wonderful – it was a pity we couldn’t score more.

"Messi not happy with sub? Leo never wants to be subbed off, but it's my task to take care of him. We need him at end of season as well as now.

"My way of thinking won't change, I repeated the whole time how I want to play, maybe this game helps some to see things clearer.

"Neymar is an exceptional player. It has surprised us how hard he wants to work for the team.

"Alexis didn’t score, but he worked very hard today, both in defence and attack. He does things that few forwards do."
