Andres Iniesta, FC Barcelona captain

"It was a wonderful, intense and exciting final in the club's last big effort of the season. Winning this trophy rounds off a magnificent campaign. Every final has its own story, and this one involved great performances by both sides. We got another win and another trophy. We're very happy to end the campaign on a high."

Jordi Alba, FC Barcelona player 

"I was lucky enough to get a goal, so I'm happy about that and winning the trophy. We've done the double. We couldn't play quite as we wanted to because of the circumstances in the game, but we showed our character. I was convinced we'd win today, especially because the team was so focused defensively. It's been a really good season for FC Barcelona; I hope it doesn't end here."

Josep Maria Bartomeu, FC Barcelona president

"It was the type of final fans enjoy, but as FC Barcelona members, we suffered too. I congratulate Sevilla, who were deserved finalists, and our fans and players because they believed we could win it, even when we were down to 10 men. It was an epic final. We worked very hard to win LaLiga and the same goes for this Cup. I'm happy for the team, the supporters and the players, who've done a magnificent job. On top of that, it's the club's seventh double in our history, so we're all delighted."

Luis Enrique,  FC Barcelona coach

"It was a spectacular final. This team is made of champions and I congratulate them."

Sergio Busquets, FC Barcelona player

"We'd never played in a final quite like this one, but we've played with 10 men before and understand everything that entails. We called on all our courage and togetherness and were determined to make ourselves tough to beat."
