Barcelona: Barcelona defender Gerard Pique hailed the winning mentality of what he described as a "unique generation" of players after the Catalans sealed a sixth La Liga title in eight years with a 3-0 win at Granada on Saturday.

Fittingly, Luis Suarez was the Barca hero with a hat-trick to take his tally for the season to 59, including 14 in his last five games.

Barca lost three consecutive league games for the first time in 13 years last month. "For the circumstances we have had to win it two times. When we were nine or 10 points ahead we had it won and then with the dip there was a moment when it seemed like we had lost it, despite the fact it was still in our own hands," Pique told Movistar+.

"There is the sensation that 20 or 25 years ago this club wouldn't have won it because we would have drowned in our own pessimism, but I think this generation and this team has changed that."
