Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu insists the club is a happy place.

The president was in a buoyant mood after Barcelona won the Futsal Champions League on Sunday night, with the Catalan side beating Murcia 2-1.

"We [Barcelona fans] have started the season with a lot of hope and good results," Bartomeu told Esport3. "In football, we have a young and enthusiastic team that will give us a lot of joy. In basketball we have also started with good results, as in women's football."

Speaking exclusively about Barcelona's futsal team, Bartomeu couldn't hide his joy at lifting silverware after a blank season for the football and basketball teams last season.

"I am happy and the smile I have now is the one that all Barcelona fans should have at this moment," he said. "A Champions League is a Champions League, and the players have deserved it after their effort. I want to thank the team for their work this season."
