Barcelona defender Mingueza 'really happy' for goalscorer Ilaix

Barcelona defender Oscar Mingueza was delighted with victory over Osasuna.

The young Cantera player is doing well and earning his place in the defence of five, but also in a back four.

“We are on a good run and we are keeping a very good attitude," said Mingueza.

“We knew that today's game was a final, in fact, all the remaining ones are. Above all, after the extra-time we played against Sevilla in the cup. The minutes and the tiredness add up and you note them, so maybe we made some mistakes, but we had a good game."

On Ilaix Moriba scoring his first goal for Barca, Mingueza added: “I'm really happy for him, he's playing really well and brings a lot to us, he's also training really well."
