Barcelona president Bartomeu hails LaLiga title: Now for Treble

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says they must go for the Treble after winning the LaLiga on Saturday.

The president was delighted with the title win but said "the objective is the treble."

"This league is the result of all the players and coaches and the unconditional support of the fans," the Blaugrana chief, after the win over Levante, told Movistar.

"Levante played very well, it was a great victory in which we had to suffer until the last second because Levante looked for a draw til the death. The team and fans relaxed a little when it was 1-0."

He was delighted for the eighth league win in 11 years.

"That reflects we're doing things right at the club. It's a record and a pride. Our main objective each season is La Liga. We'll have a very quiet celebration because Wednesday we have the challenge of the Champions.

"The objective is the treble. In the Champions League we will face a really strong rival and in the Copa del Rey our opponent is improving."
