Pep Guardiolas team put in a spectacular performance in Madrid as they thrashed Rayo (7-0) to take the three points from Vallecas. The players highlighted the teams commitment and professionalism as key factors in todays victory.
After a difficult week because of ourelimination from Champions League and the game against Real Madrid, this match was proof that the team is strong and eager, said Pedro Rodrguez, who scored a brace against Rayo.
With Guardiola to the end, excited that Tito will be next
The Spanish striker said that the team is with Guardiola 100% until the end of the season, but that the squad is optimistic about Tito Vilanovas appointment as manager for next season. It was a hard blow for the players, after everything Guardiola done for the Club, but we have to respect his decision. However, were very pleased that Tito will be manager. We wish him the best, said the player.
Wed like to present the Kings Cup title to the fans and to Guardiola. Well see how we come into that match, said Pedro. The canterano also evaluated Lionel Messis insatiable goalscoring appetite: he demonstrates game after game that hes the best in the world. We all have to help him finish the season as top scorer.
Congratulations to the futsal team
Pedro also analyzed the game against Rayo: we found the goals very quickly, we pressured them high up the pitch. It was an open match and were pleased with the victory.
On the other hand, the footballer said that hes fighting to be included in Spains Euro Championship squad. He also congratulated Bara Alusport for their conquest of the Clubs first European Cup. Its a very big joy, he said.
Here are some of the statements made by Bara players after the match (some of them were made on Twitter):
The team played a great game and we showed a lot of ambition and perseverance. Now we have to focus on our next match.
I want to apologize to the Rayo fans if I offended them with my goal celebration. I never wanted to offend anyone.
The most important thing is the team, but we have to do everything we can so that Leo Messi finishes the season as top goalscorer. Hes broken all the records, hes the best in the world.
Pinto is the keeper in the Cup and this match was a good opportunity for him to get a bit of game rhythm. The game we have left [Cup final] is very important, I hope Pep can leave the Club with the Cup title.
Before anything else I want to congratulate Afellay for his return. He deserves the best.
I want to apologize if I offended Rayos fans with my goal celebration. I made a mistake when I was overjoyed with my goal. It wont happen again.
