Spanish Media Hails ‘Legendary’ Barcelona

Spanish media hailed “legendary” Barcelona after the Catalan side won the European Cup for the fifth time.

“A legendary Barca achieves a new treble in Berlin,” the online edition of Catalan daily La Vanguardia said in its headline.

“A treble, the second in the 118 years of the club, closes a dream season,” it added. The newspaper compared Barcelona’s domination to a “hegemony”.

The 3-1 Champions League final victory in Berlin made Luis Enrique’s side the first team to twice win the European treble – the European and Spanish domestic titles and the Spanish Cup.

The club clinched its first treble in the 2008/09 under former coach Pep Guardiola.

“A fifth with a treble,” headlined sports daily Marca in its online edition.
