Barcelona president Joan Laporta was delighted to see Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho (2) among the goals for last night's 3-0 defeat of Real Betis.

Laporta said: "I am happy for them and for the team, this action will motivate them more and is a way to bringing the team together.

"They're both among the best in the world and give us a major strength. They played for the team and I am very happy for them."

Laporta also noted the regular 70,000-plus crowds at the Nou Camp this season: "It means the fans believe in this team."
