Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has paid tribute to the club's former players.

Rosell says the current team's success is due to those who came before them.

"Everything that the club is currently doing on and off the pitch is thanks to its former players, they have created the values that we stick by today," Rosell told reporters at the dinner.

"That is what makes us a unique club and it is that attitude that makes the club more than just a football club."
