Gerard Pique spoke after the Copa del Rey final defeat by Valencia on Saturday. Here are his key quotes:
The game: Valencia got forward three times and scored two goals, then they shut up shop well at the back. We had chances at the end of the first half and the beginning of the second. I'm happy with the reaction the team showed. We scored and we could have equalised.
Analysis of season: Valencia are worthy champions and it's also been a good year for us. It's always a good year when you win La Liga but the expectation was to have an even better year and that's not been the case. The season ends with a bittersweet feeling, because it could have been better.
Valverde: We're not worrying about the manager's future, we all have to analyse ourselves and try and improve. The other decisions aren't in our hands. But it's something we've said more than once, that we would like him to stay on. He's done a good job. As a team and individually we now have a long summer to analyse things and regain strength for next season.
No excuse: When you don't win and you have players missing, you can blame it on that, but I don't think there's any worthy excuse today. We're Barça and we are obliged to win everything, especially against Valencia. Congratulations to them, though, and we will come back next season and try and win every trophy.
