Like the rest of us, Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique both loved Barcelona’s Copa del Rey comeback win over Granada on Wednesday night.
The Catalan giants looked set for a disappointing exit but managed to turn the game around in dramatic fashion.
Late goals from Antoine Griezmann and Jordi Alba forced extra-time, and the visitors then went on to win 5-3 to book their place in the last four.
Pique took to Twitter with the message: “What a comeback. We’re in the semi-finals!”
Meanwhile, Puyol was happy to offer his congratulations and was impressed by his former team’s hunger and desire.
He wrote: “Congratulations Barcelona not for going through the tie but for the attitude, the character ... I have seen a hungry team. Visca Barça.”
Enhorabuena @FCBarcelona_es no por pasar la eliminatoria sino por la actitud, el carácter... he visto un equipo con hambre. Visca el Barça ❤️— Carles Puyol (@Carles5puyol) February 3, 2021
