Clement Lenglet says Barcelona want to clinch the league title as soon as possible after victory over Real Sociedad on Saturday.

The centre-back scored his first La Liga goal for the club in a 2-1 win at the Camp Nou, as Barcelona moved nine points clear at the top of the table.

“We want to be champions as fast as possible, but we have to work for it, we can get the title this week and we will try to do it so to celebrate with all the fans,” he said.

“My first [La Liga] goal is special. The goal against Cultural [in the Copa del Rey] was different, because it was in the last minute, but it was also very important.

“A goal before the break is always positive to be able to go into the dressing room ahead, but then it has been seen that these end of season games are difficult.”

Lenglet has enjoyed a fine campaign at Barcelona since joining the club from Sevilla in the summer and is on course to win La Liga in his first season at the Camp Nou.
