Barcelona skipper Puyol lifts Copa: Treble now on

Barcelona captain Carles Puyol has declared the Treble is on after lifting the Copa del Rey last night. Athletic Bilbao had no answer to a rampant Barca as Yaya Toure, Lionel Messi, Bojan Krkic and Xavi all struck in the 4-1 triumph.

Over 50,000 fans were at the Mestalla to see Barca win the Copa and Puyol said afterwards: "This is historic, but much remains to play for and hopefully this is the first of the three titles that are possible.

"For this final we played at our best, we played the ball at all times and have stuck to our game.

"Athletic couldn't get hold of the ball and that has taken its toll on them."
