Sandro Rosell convinced Barcelona will end season with trophies

In an open letter to the club and its fans, the president encourages support for Barcelona as they prepare for the season run-in
Barcelona president Sandro Rosell is certain the club will not become even more embattled in the run-in for la Liga and the Champions League following Wednesday's Copa del Rey loss as he sends out his message of support.

In an open letter published on the club's official website, Rosell encouraged a positive environment and said they are eager to move on and share the focus and workload for their upcoming fixtures.

An extract from his letter reads: "We face this final stretch of the season with the satisfaction that comes from knowing that our coaches and players are doing an outstanding job, and with the excitement of what lies ahead. In a few days we are playing for two titles - la Liga and the Champions League - and our team will need maximum support. I am convinced that we will not fail them."

The Catalans meet Osasuna on Saturday, and Pep Guardiola's men are eight points clear of Real Madrid in la Liga.

Earlier Guardiola said the Spanish league title is more important than the Copa del Rey, the final of which they lost against Madrid on Wednesday.
