When we accepted the 1-1 it was not just football, it was competing. That helps you achieve success, we expect the Champions League” , he wanted.

Asked if Caroline Graham Hansenauthor of two goals for Barça in the semifinal, is “undervalued internationally”, Giráldez stressed that for him the Norwegian “is one of the best players in the world.

I hope he can maintain that level, we know it is very important for us”, he pointed out.

Of Alexia Putellas, advanced that he will play in the next game, after returning after his long recovery to call a difficult game. “I talked to him before the game, because he was coming off a long injury.

We will try to get her to play the next match, among other things so you don’t have to ask”, he joked.

In the first leg the score was short and in the second leg, until the 60th minute, Chelsea created very little for us. I did not feel that they were going for the game, but to stay alive. I didn’t feel, at least I did, a panic situation,” he said. In the other finalist he did not show preferences, but he announced that he will go to London on Monday to see that Arsenal-Wolfsburgo. “Let the one who deserves it qualify, I don’t want anything. I’ll go see him on the field, but more as a spectator than as anything else. I’ll congratulate the other finalist and we’ll stay for Eindhoven ,” he said. Finally, he celebrated the union with the fans. “They are ‘ten’, before, during and after the game,” he said.
