Puyol: "We want to bring the cup back here"

Speaking to the club's official media, Barcelona players Carles Puyol and Xavi commented on Friday's European super cup game against Shakhtar Donetsk:

"Three years ago, we played a really bad match. Sevilla were much better and deserved the victory. But as the saying goes, defeat makes you stronger. Now there's a new opportunity that we must not let get away. We'll fight hard in Monaco to bring the Cup back here.

It's another game. We know that we have to prepare it well. We know we're up against a very difficult opponent who'll be really fired up, so we have to be the same. I'm confident that it will turn out well."

"It's true that they will tell us that there are similarities with three years ago but the players are intelligent and they know the past. People are reminding us too much about what happened back then. This year the team has earned a lot of credit and there's a lot of modesty in the group. This time, it can all go very well."
