Bartomeu: “The Cup final will be a different story”

The FC Barcelona sports vice president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, spoke after the game against Athletic Bilbao at Camp Nou.

FC Barcelona’s first vice president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, said that Athletic Club is a team that “plays football very well” and that he’s convinced that the King’s Cup Final next May will be “a totally different match” to tonight’s game at the Camp Nou. For Bartomeu, “a final has nothing to do with a La Liga match. It’ll be a different story.” On the other hand, with Barça maintaining the six-point gap with Real Madrid, Bartomeu said that Los Blancos are “having a fantastic season” and that Barça must “work hard, win our matches, and if they lose points, all the better.”

The vice president also talked about the tribute to Leo Messi before the match: “he’s the biggest, the best. We have to live this story that this player is making with us.”

El vicepresident s’ha referit també a l’homenatge que Leo Messi ha rebut abans del partit: “És el més gran, el millor. Hem de viure aquesta història que el jugador està fent amb nosaltres.”(via FCBarcelona.com)
