thumbnail Hello,

The second-choice custodian was pleased with his side's professionalism as Pep Guardiola's side broke yet another record following their 3-1 away win against Malaga

Despite Barcelona already being champions, goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto was pleased that their 3-1 victory at Malaga saw them notch up their 14th win away from home this season, a record in La Liga.

Although Pep Guardiola's weakened side went a goal down, they fought back to claim the three points, thanks to strikes from Bojan Krkic, Ibrahim Afellay and Marc Bartra.

"We showed that we always play like true professionals and we love breaking records,” Pinto told AS. “In this instance, we achieved the most victories away from home, which is important to us.

"It was good to finish on the right note after an excellent game in which we played with the kids, who always play with perfection."

Pinto, who is an understudy to Victor Valdes, is suspended for the Champions League final after his red card in the semi-final first-leg against Real Madrid, but he is still looking forward to the showpiece event at Wembley.

"We are eagerly looking forward to the game. We are working hard and with great enthusiasm without making too much noise.

"I cannot be there in person but I will be there in spirit and encouraging my team-mates to bring home the trophy.”
