When you’re little your family tells you things and that’s why you keep going, but it was an issue with my grandfather and wherever he is now he’ll be happy to see me as a Barça player”.
LAPORTA, ABOUT GODALL

We have congratulated Rafa Nadal on his sporting success and we have always recognized him as an athlete who is an example of self-improvement and how to stay in the elite.

AUBA, ABOUT THE END OF THE MARKET
“It was a very long day, crazy. We signed two minutes from the end. It was very long, I was with my dad at his house hoping that everything would be fine. In the end they called me in the afternoon to go do the medical check-up and I went very happy. A little stress at the end but all good.”
