Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, top, celebrates after scoring his side’s first goal during the UEFA Super Cup soccer match between FC Barcelona and Sevilla FC at the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena stadium, in Tbilisi, Georgia, on Tu…
“I do not know if the result is fair, but with the chances we had, I am left with honey on the lips. I don’t know what he’ll decide but whatever he’ll have our support”, Messi added. I only want to enjoy this title’.
“To get to European finals you need to earn respect and so attack the opposition which is what we did”.
“I said before the match, the worst thing would be being unable to recognise the team but that didn’t happen”.
Both sides toiled for the victor in the extra time, but Pedro came in as a substitute and grabbed the victor for the Blaugrana in the 115th minute of the game, and Barcelona are crowned the UEFA Super Cup champions for 2015.
Pedro, 28, has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United throughout the summer amid rumours of discontent at Camp Nou (BBC).
“He had to stop training two days ago due to a problem with his leg and so I decided to start with Rafinha”. I want to play. This could be his last game.
The speculation surrounding Pedro’s future gathered yet more pace on Tuesday after Barcelona’s technical secretary Robert Fernandez claimed that he had asked to leave the club – comments which irked the player himself. It’s time to focus on his transfer move, and as per the latest report, the Spain worldwide is all set to join Manchester United, despite being advised not to do so by former Barca great Hristo Stoichkov. “He’s made some very unfortunate declarations”. We wish him the best as he has delivered – and is still delivering – for Barcelona. “I spoke with the captains, the president, the coach… just a few seconds with him”, he said afterwards.
‘Today I’m here and I’m happy.
Last game for Pedro in Barcelona? I was disappointed to not start in this game but as I’m a professional, I went out and helped the team.
“I understand why you’re interested in this matter but I’m not going to say any more about it”.
