The Barça defender was happy with what he witnessed against Madrid

Ronald Araujo was happy with Barcelona's performance despite going down to Real Madrid in extra time in the Spanish Supercopa semifinal on Wednesday.

"Losing always hurts but I am proud of the team," he said. "We played really well. We wanted to be the protagonists, to have the ball, we were better...

"We couldn't counteract their counterattack, but I am proud of the team. You're seeing the great work we're doing, the group is united and we hope results will come soon.

"We have to correct some things but I am happy with what we're doing. We knew they would wait and counter, that we couldn't lose easy balls. It's a shame to not reach the final.

"We're growing. You can see the fruit of our work. A month ago it seemed a long way away, but now it's close. We can fight against any team."
