Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola, who has led his side to three trophies this season, leads off reaction from the new champions of Europe.
If you attack and are daring you have more chances of winning.
We have not been cowards, never in the match. There’s nothing more dangerous than not taking risks.
We have worked many, many hours this season and this is our payment.
Messi went back into midfield because we wanted to be superior in possession. Without the ball we are a disastrous team, a horrible team, so we need the ball.
We are not the best team in history but we have played the best season in history to win the three titles.
Barcelona president Joan Laporta
Pep and the players have played the best season in the history of Barca and they have demonstrated that they are the best team in history of Barca.
Pep in one year has really created a genius team. It has roots in Cruyff’s philosophy but at the same time he himself has created something.
Apart from the way we play it is also down to the way we fought all season.
In the first 10 minutes we were kind of lucky and playing against a United side who are difficult to beat. But we fight and we never give up.
I struggle to describe what we have achieved this year. No team has ever done this treble in Spain, it’s something amazing.
You always remember winners, that’s the difference. You can play good football, pass the ball well but unless you win silverware sometimes it doesn’t count.
I want to thank the fans and hope they enjoy the moment. The last few years haven’t been great. They have fought and suffered the same as we have.
