Cesc Fabregas after Manchester City 0 – Barcelona 2: ‘We’ve shut a few people up’

Cesc Fabregas spoke to ITV after Barcelona’s win at the Etihad tonight, and he took particular relish in sticking it to Barca’s critics while he was at it.

Putting Barcelona’s season into perspective – top of the league, in the Cup final – Cesc took aim at the critics perpetually trying to knock Barcelona.

In one way he lamented the pressure and scrutiny the club is always under, in another he intimated that this is what makes the club so great.

‘People have been saying it’s not the same Barcelona, that this, that that, well, we’ve shut a few people up tonight’.
