Sergio Busquets assures fans that Barcelona will recover from Copa del Rey final defeat

The Blaugrana midfielder believes his side were the better side in the King's Cup final which saw Real Madrid crowned champions.

Barcelona were defeated in the 107th Copa del Rey final after an extra time goal from Cristiano Ronaldo proved enough to see off the Catalan giants.

Speaking to As after the game Barca midfielder Sergio Busquets said: “This is football, no more explanation, sometimes the best team does not win.

“The only thing we can do is learn, elevate the mood and think about the next game, which is against Osasuna.”

He added: “I want to thank the fans who have come to Valencia. We were very excited, but it could not be. If we can stay together, I’m sure you’ll see great things from us.”
