Daniel Alves says Barcelona’s Club World Cup triumph proves that it is the best team in the world, despite the latest barbed comments about the side by Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho.

Alves helped the European and Spanish champions to a 4-0 victory over Santos in Sunday’s final as the Catalan club won its 13th trophy since the arrival of coach Pep Guardiola.

Mourinho sarcastically congratulated Barcelona on Monday, saying it had won “two little games.”

Alves says the numbers “show we’re the best” and adds that “envy is a bad thing.”

The Brazil international says Mourinho “only values what he achieves” while finding excuses when others triumph because “that’s his personality and way of being.”
