Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu believes that Sunday’s Clasico win shows that his side are ‘still the best’.
The Blaugrana beat Real Madrid 4-3 at the weekend to close the gap at the top of the table to just one point.
And despite all the controversy, the Catalan team’s chief has insisted that his men proved they are number one in La Liga.
“For us, nothing changes,” he told AFP. “We have great trust in our players.
“Personally, I have always said that our boys are the best in the world and on Sunday they showed that again.
“They played so well.
“We are now only one point behind the two teams ahead of us. We'll try to give everything in the remaining games to retake control [of the League].”
