Luis Enrique says Barcelona’s sixth goal against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday “was scored by all the Cules in the world”.
Sergi Roberto’s 95th-minute winner confirmed the biggest comeback in Champions League history as Barca came back from 4-0 down to beat PSG 6-1 on the night and 6-5 on aggregate, and Enrique hailed his players’ “heroism”.
“The organisation of the team was spectacular. We took risks,” the Coach said after the game.
“In terms of emotion, it was a piece of heroism that worked out for everyone at the club.
“Many things happened. The key was the faith of the team. We looked like being eliminated on 84 minutes.
“We shot at every opportunity, even the goalkeeper went up to shoot. Then, the sixth goal was scored by all the Cules in the world.
“This is a competition that doesn’t forgive a bad match. We turned it around. We have to learn from our mistakes. It was worth suffering, even after the defeat in Paris.”
