RIVER PLATE ASSISTANT COACH MATÍAS BISCAY AT NEWS CONFERENCE 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) RIVER PLATE ASSISTANT COACH MATÍAS BISCAY, SAYING; "What the players did was also for those people who felt cheated, who can now experience joy.

I think that not all of our society is violent, its a minority, and there were lots of people at the River stadium who behaved well, they were expecting a sports show and because of a few people they couldn't have it.

So for those people who behaved themselves, and were waiting, and were patient, they have been brought some joy now by what the players have achieved." 3.

RIVER PLATE CAPTAIN LEONARDO PONZIO AT NEWS CONFERENCE 4.

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) RIVER PLATE CAPTAIN, LEONARDO PONZIO, SAYING; "We tried to meet the expectations in a positive way, we could not be contaminated by negative things because it would be worse for River.

Today we have demonstrated that after being silent, and not saying anything about other matters, we showed on the pitch we were superior." 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) RIVER PLATE CAPTAIN, LEONARDO PONZIO, SAYING; "It was a high-tension match, in which the team that got control of the game, the rival would step back and that would be difficult.

The first half was marked by their counter-attacking, in which they scored.

We always tried to control the game, and maybe we didn't have the precision.

At half-time we reinforced our plan, thinking that the effort of not having the ball would create space.

And that's the way it went." STORY: River Plate's Copa Libertadores triumph has restored joy to fans "cheated" by the violence that saw the final moved to Madrid.

That was the view of the club's assistant coach, Matias Biscay, speaking to reporters after his team beat Argentine rivals Boca Juniors on Sunday (December 9).
