Messi And Ibrahimovic Delighted After Barcelona's Malaga Win

After winning a heated encounter at La Rosaleda, Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic offered their thoughts on the game.

Barca prevailed 2-0 with goals from Ibrahimovic and Gerard Pique. Speaking to Sport, Messi said, "It was an ugly, hard game."

"These games are won with a lot of collective effort. We are very happy with the victory.

"What happens on the pitch stays on the pitch, what is important is that we won."

Ibrahimovic then echoed similar sentiments, saying, "The referee was under a lot of pressure and had a difficult game."

"He made some mistakes, but everyone does. What is important is that we have won five out of five, not that I have scored five.

"I am satisfied, but my only goal is to help the team. Today was not easy, because we were playing against a very aggressive team.

"I was not at a hundred percent, but I felt good on the pitch."
