Turkish international star Arda Turan was on the field for the last three goals and told reporters after the game that Barcelona proved yet again why they are the best.

“First of all PSG are an excellent side but we always believed in ourselves,” Turan was quoted as saying by Turkish-Football after the game.

“We took the advantage, we lost the advantage then we won against all the odds when it all looked over. 

“We achieved the impossible and hopefully we can be an inspiration for people never to give up. 

“We proved why we are the best team in the world.”

Turan also thanked the fans for not giving up and supporting Barcelona throughout the 90 minutes.

The tie looked wrapped up when Edison Cavani scored for PSG but the Barca supporters kept faith in the team and did not head for an early exit.

The stands were full until the fifth minute of additional time.

“The fans never gave up, it was as if we did not lose the first game 4-0, the whole city believed, it was an incredible atmosphere,” he added.
