Neymar Jr couldn’t feel prouder of yet more success at FC Barcelona.

Jordi Alba, scorer of few but crucial goals | FC Barcelona
Football often throws up some unexpected storylines, and one of those came about in last Sunday’s Copa del Rey final between FC Barcelona and Sevilla.

Carles Puyol once said, "I don't have Romario's technique, Marc Overmars' pace or Patrick Kluivert's strength. But I work harder than the others. I'm like the student who is not as clever, but revises for his exams and does OK in the end." In that context, it is easy to understand why the former Barcelona defender has nothing but admiration for Diego Simeone and Atletico Madrid.

Thomas Vermaelen disappointed with Barcelona game time - Goal.com
Thomas Vermaelen says he was left "disappointed" after being left out in the cold for Barcelona's double-winning run-in. Barca produced a stunning late-season surge to retain La Liga, while a 2-0 extra-time victory over Sevilla last weekend kept the Copa del Rey in their possession.
