Carles Aleñá follows the doctrine laid out by Leo Messi in the Joan Gamper about the goals that Barça have this season. The Maresme-born midfielder recognises that they are not just words, but a firm will to do something great this season: "Yes, it is clear that the Champions is a thorn that is stuck in our side. Last year, because of the way they eliminated us ... It was a little unfair because your awful game comes the day you least expect it. And it was a good year to have been able to win it. And because of the way they eliminated us, this year it is like a main objective," he explained.
"People are excited about the Champions League and we, too, have not won for a few years and it's a main objective," he acknowledged, although he added that "you can not forget LaLiga because every year that you've won the Champions League, you’ve also won that. You can not let go of it because it is the most important and the most regular competition, there is also the Copa del Rey, but the Champions is the main objective of the dressing room.”
