In an interview with Movistar after Barcelona were knocked out of the Champions League, Sergio Busquets spoke about the club playing in the Europa League.

“This isn’t what we wanted. The fans don’t deserve this but it’s the reality. We’re in a difficult situation and it hurts a lot. It’s a backward step for us. We have the team to win the Europa League.”

The last time Barça failed to advance to the last 16 of the Champions League was in the 2000/01 season.
