Messi delivered a statement at a Spanish television, “We didn’t expect to finish in this way, but it sums up the year for us, We have been an erratic and weak team, who can be beaten with enough intensity and enthusiasm. We have lost a lot of points which we shouldn’t have done and been very inconsistent.”
The Argentinian also said “Individual prizes and objectives are secondary. It’s an important achievement to win it seven times but I would have liked it to have been accompanied by the La Liga title.” With the Champions League still in play, Setien, Barca’s coach still sees that the team can win in their best form. Despite the high achievements, Messi still strives to get that championship. The team hopes that they may be able to in their next run.
