Ernesto Valverde: 'Messi's celebration shows the spirit the team has'
Barcelona head coach reflects on the game in Sevilla and the saviour of Barcelona
"We had to push up and risk continuous counterattacks from Sevilla, which could have been very dangerous."
"We had several difficulties. Sevilla played very well and they were in their natural habitat with the result in their favour."
"We planned to start or sub Messi in the second half. As I've always said, Messi is a very important player and crucial every time he plays."
"Messi's celebration shows the spirit the team has and the importance of getting a good outcome from this game."
"The idea was to get Messi some minutes before the Roma game, regardless of how this game would have turned out."
