Jordi Alba has reaffirmed that the Real Madrid and Barcelona players in the Spain Euro 2016 squad get along fine. He maintains that though they may be arch-rivals in La Liga, things are much different right now because every player is fighting for the same cause.

Alba, Pique and Iniesta are among the few Barca players representing La Roja at Euro 2016.
Other players like Sergio Ramos and Lucas Vazquez carry the banner for Los Blancos, along with ex-Madrid players Iker Casillas and Alvaro Morata.
“It’s a very good locker room. There’s always rivalry between Madrid and Barca but we’re all defending the same with the national team,” the left-back told a Press conference, AS reports.
“The new people have settled in perfectly and that is vital because we are spending a lot of time together. It’s definitely better as because aside from the football, we’re spending a lot of hours with each other.
“Ramos? He’s a very important player, not only on the pitch. He offers a lot off it. I have a great relationship with him. He’s very important and he’s the mirror in which we see ourselves.”
