Barcelona coach Rijkaard: We deserved victory

Rijkaard said: “We played as we now should be playing – pressuring in the other half of the pitch – we must continue like this.

“I was very happy with the response from the fans, they’re with us again because they see the team working together as a unit.

“Since Nastic, the team is now steadily improving and working together.

“Celta played most of the game with ten men behind the ball. I’m not bothered about the referee, we had the ball for at least 61-62 per cent of the game. The victory was deserved. We had the ball for most of the game and created many chances.”
