The ex-Barcelona director and grandfather to Gerard Pique has hailed his grandson's contributions to the Catalan side's third Champions League title in five years

Former Barcelona director Amador Bernabeu has hailed Barcelona’s 3-1 Champions League final win over Manchester United as the Catalan side clinched their third European title in five years.

Bernabeu, who served for the Camp Nou club during Josep Lluis Nunez’s tenure as president of Barcelona, is also the grandfather to Barca defender Gerard Pique. And the former director and vice-president has praised his grandson’s contribution in the victory over United at Wembley.

“It was a sensational match for Barcelona, the fans and for Gerard, who had a wonderful game,” said Bernabeu.

"We have a wonderful team. We won a European Cup here [at Wembley in 1992] and repeated the story today. Congratulations to all the Barcelona and Spanish fans who supports us."

Barcelona's fourth Champions League/European Cup win, along with Real Madrid's nine have allowed Spain to overtake Italy to become the country with the most titles in Europe's premier club competition.
