Enrique: This Barca are unique

Luis Enrique has hailed his “unique generation” of Barcelona players ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final against Juventus.

The Asturian Coach is on the verge of replicating the achievements of his mentor Pep Guardiola, having taken La Blaugrana to within 90 minutes of a second treble in his first season at the helm, but he insists their success has been a team effort.

“In theory, I imagine [Andres Iniesta] is feeling the same way as everyone else. He’s in perfect condition,” he said at a Press conference.

“I don’t think it's a clash of styles. Juve need the ball, have resources and aim to win the treble too.

“They’re a team who have solutions in all important aspects of the game.

“There’s some euphoria, but most of it has been among the fans for several months. We’re facing the match with the utmost sincerity.

“I have no spirit of revenge [on the Italian media]. From my playing career, I’m proud that I don’t have anything to avenge, not even after what they said about me.

“[My squad] are among a unique generation of players in the club’s history. We all expect to see a spectacular final.

“We’re all aware that our attack will draw attention because we have the best player in the world, Leo [Messi], and that [Neymar] and [Luis] Suarez have also had very good seasons.

“However, to win two titles and be here takes a huge team effort in attack and defence. Plus, we have numbers [in the squad].

“I’m feeling the same way as always, calm and waiting for the match. It’s not the most important challenge of my life, I hope that is yet to come.”
