Barcelona had looked on course for the treble, but threw away a 3-0 lead in the Champions League against the Reds and were beaten 2-1 in the Copa del Rey final.

“We start the season with more pressure than last year because of everything that happened at the end of last season, but I also think we’ve gone up a level. The signings we have made so far have increased the level of the squad.”
