• Bateria and Ferrao feel pride despite holders Barcelona losing 3-2 to final rivals Kairat
• "Small details changed the course of the match," says Ferrao

Bateria, Barcelona forward
We didn't play that badly, but unfortunately we made some mistakes that cannot be allowed happen against a team like Kairat. But I think that we leave here with our heads held high as we had a great tournament. We are going to fight to come back one day to enjoy a tournament like this. The easier way to be back was to win today, but we know that we have a great squad that is going to fight to win the Liga to return again.
Ferrao, Barcelona forward
Unfortunately we didn't win, but we've played two good games in the semi-final and in the final. The small details changed the course of the match. We know the importance of this competition and that it's very difficult to play in. We have to trust in ourselves to win the Liga and manage to return to this spectacular competition. The crowd was spectacular here and it was a very good advertisement for futsal.
