"This Barcelona experience will make us stronger".
He said: "Hospitals should hire nurses in nine months' time because there will be a lot of love!" It's hard to argue.
Barcelona completed one of the most extraordinary comebacks in European football history to knock Paris St Germain out of the Champions League on Wednesday with a 6-1 victory that rewrote the record books.
As for explaining how in the world Paris Saint-Germain could blow a three-goal lead entering the 88th minute?
"I hope it will serve as a lesson to everyone". "Sometimes miracles do happen and this was the impossible".
"I have never experienced anything like it", said a breathless Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti.
"We're also playing teams with the same desire as us so it will be very tough".
But three goals in a remarkable first half at Riazor, sparked by Walter Pandiani's opener, turned the tie around. "It's a lesson for life - there is always a way".
Here is how the French media reacted to a historic defeat. "We knew we could sow doubts in our opponents if we scored early". "It was more than a thriller", Luis Enrique said.
Following a 6-5 aggregate win over PSG, Barcelona had the shortest odds to win it all, ahead of Bayern Munich and its fierce domestic rival Real Madrid.
The treble is very much on with the club already through to the Copa del Rey final.
"We have never been cautious and we want to win the three competitions", said manager Luis Enrique, whose side will play Alaves in the King's Cup final in May.
"I would like to dedicate this to all Barcelona fans, but especially those that kept supporting us after the 4-0 [in Paris]". This is dedicated to them because this isn't the Harlem Globetrotters, this is football. "This is a unique sport for insane people", Luis Enrique told reporters. It's clearly for insane people.
It was one of the most jaw-dropping sequences ever seen at Camp Nou - or any other ground.
As for PSG, how about this for a statistic.
On BT Sport, when they stopped celebrating the last minute goal, Rio Ferdinand, Michael Owen and Steven Gerrard had their say on the astounding comeback by Barcelona. His run into the area resulted in Barcelona's third goal, converted by Messi from the penalty spot in the 50th after Thomas Meunier stumbled and thrust his shoulder into Neymar as he streaked past.
