Jordi Alba is never short of things to say and the Barcelona full-back has given his take on the club’s season after Saturday’s Copa del Rey defeat.

Barcelona finished the campaign with just the league trophy to show for their efforts after disappointing cup defeats to Liverpool and Valencia.

Yet Alba feels like the team deserve more credit after being crowned La Liga champions yet again.

“It’s a very difficult moment for the whole team as we were very close to the treble, but in the end it wasn’t to be,” he said.

”For better or for worse, we have spoiled people by winning so many titles and it’s really hard to win.

”We should all give much more value to the league we have won, as it seems that if you only win this title the season is lost.”

Alba also said he thought this season was the best of his career “excluding those two games” - no prizes for guessing which matches he means.
