‘People expect more from us and we understand it because we are Barca.
‘But we are in it, improving, especially at the level of the game rather than results, because in the end we are leaders in the league and Champions League.
‘I remember Luis Enrique’s first year when things didn’t work for the first months and then we ended up winning the Treble.’
