Barcelona's tormentor-in-chief Anders Iniesta was lost for words after helping his side to UEFA Champions League glory.
The diminutive Spaniard was sensational in Rome as he helped Barca overcome reigning champions Manchester United.
From the moment Iniesta played in Samuel Eto'o for Barca's opening goal, the Spanish side took control.
Iniesta was a constant thorn in United's side, and he admitted Barca deserved their win - which sealed a treble for them after they completed a domestic double.
"We're the best," he told Canal+.
"There are no words to explain this, it was the perfect end to a spectacular season.
"They were the better side for six or seven minutes, but after that we had the game. Perfect."
Captain Carles Puyol was equally delighted with the success.
"This is the last title we were going for and this is an historic season," he said referring to the treble.
"In the first 10 minutes, until the goal, they (United) dominated. With the goal we were able to take control of the match. We were able to play with more calm and were able to play our game.
"We have given everything to win. We've won everything that we could win this year. We've tried to win everything and for this it has been an historic season.
"I want to thank the fans and hope they enjoy the moment. The last few years haven't been great. They have fought and suffered the same as we have," the Spain international said.
Samuel Eto'o - who opened the scoring - added: "There is a God up there.
"I just don't know how to celebrate this."
