Clement Lenglet is prepared to put his body and teeth on the line for the good of the Barcelona cause in an ongoing bid for a possible treble.
The French defender was among those who helped Ernesto Valverde’s side take another step towards hitting that target against Liverpool on Wednesday.
A 3-0 victory in the first leg of a Champions League semi-final has the Catalan giants daring to dream of European glory.
Lenglet is setting his sights on more major silverware, with the 23-year-old having taken a few knocks against Liverpool to keep Barcelona on course.
He told RMC Sport after a notable victory over the Reds at Camp Nou: “I lost a little bit of a tooth but it's not serious.
“But I'm happy to lose bits of teeth again on a regular basis!”
Lenglet did struggle to get to grips with the challenge posed by Mohamed Salah early on in a heavyweight continental clash, with a yellow card picked up shortly before half-time.
He was, however, happy with his performance as a whole, adding: “I had a difficult first 20 minutes.
“During that period of the game, I needed to adapt to the distance I needed to stand off [Salah].
“You can't let the ball be played deep but [you have to] be quite close to step in as well. It was a little easier after that [first 20 minutes], even if these games are always difficult.
“I found it a little easier to position myself and analyse how close I needed to be to keep his back to goal as often as possible and - when he did turn - be able to play for time and get help from my teammates.”
Barcelona are due at Anfield on Tuesday for the return date of a meeting with Liverpool, with their sights being set on a final outing at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano home on June 1.
Arturo Vidal has added on that quest: “I would give everything to win the Champions League.
“I will give my life in the return leg and I hope to play in the final.”
