Real Betis defender Bartra: Copa bigger for me than any title won with Barcelona and BVB

Real Betis defender Marc Bartra is full of pride winning the Copa del Rey this season.

Betis defeated Valencia in a penalty shootout.

Bartra told Mundo Deportivo: "Just when Miranda scores the penalty. In the end everything is decided by details. And it's all or nothing.

"It was to enter history or not to enter, and everything is ten centimetres, perhaps.

"Whether the goalkeeper saves it or not, whether you score the goal or not… That moment was incredible.

"I have been lucky enough to be able to win everything that can be won at club level, with Barça and with Dortmund, but winning with Betis, the feeling that there has been, what we experienced during that weekend, and until now even, in the streets, the people, the happiness that it represents for them… It has made it very, very special.

"Even more than any other title. Betis had not won a title for 17 years, even many did not know hpw Betis was lifting a Cup... Being part of this family, of this team that has made history is something very big."
