Gerard Piqué admits that Juventus were the better side over the two legs but says he was proud to see the Camp Nou singing until the end and how his side fought tooth and nail in an effort to change the complexion of the tie as they crashed out of the Champions League.
"It was a very difficult result to recover from," he said referring to his side's capitulation in Turin that saw them bring a 3-0 defeat back to the Camp Nou in an effort to overturn another massive result for the second round in a row after they beat PSG 6-1 in the second leg of the last 16 clash.
Camp Nou singing until the end
"It's a very difficult loss, but the fans singing like that deserve to be remember. It fills me with pride to see the Camp Nou like this," he continued.
"Juventus are a great team and they were better than us. I wish them the best and I think they can go on to win the title. We made the game very difficult. It was a result that was very complicated to recover from, however we did fight until the last whistle. They are Italians and they defend very well. They achieved their objective."
Gràcies afició. Mai havia vist el Camp Nou reaccionar així després d'una eliminació. Orgull i emoció.— Gerard Piqué (@3gerardpique) 19 de abril de 2017
