Barcelona coach Luis Enrique: Sergi Roberto best right-back we have

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique hailed the performance of Sergi Roberto after victory over Sporting Gijon.

Enrique felt Roberto was outstanding at right-back.

"Sergi Roberto is the best right-back for Barcelona," Luis Enrique said at his post-match press conference. "Sporting Gijon were very intense, Barcelona were having a hard time making progress in attack but fortunately we took advantage of a quick transition and a play from the wing.

"We were sloppy in the early stages of the second half but the red card allowed us to extend the lead and seize the win for good."
