Barcelona: Barcelona's Europe-conquering heroes, Winners of Champions League trophy, paraded in an open-top, double-decker bus through cheering, packed streets and arrived to a roar of welcome at a bursting Camp Nou stadium.

Brandishing the trophy from their sublime 3-1 victory over Manchester United in London's Wembley stadium, players made a victorious entry one by one to their home pitch on Sunday.

The bigggest cheer from the 98,000-capacity crowd erupted for man-of-the-match Lionel Messi, who scored the second goal.

Famed as a man of few words, Messi said, "Actually, I have nothing to say to you," Simply, let's enjoy all this.Thank you for this season. And I hope we will be able to enjoy a lot more."

French international Eric Abidal, who has recovered from surgery to remove a liver tumour only two months ago, thanked captain Carles Puyol for allowing him the honour of receiving the trophy in Wembley.

 "Thanks to the captain for his gesture. It was the best day of my career," he said.

Defender Gerard Pique chose the venue to hit out at a slew of allegations against the team in the past season, some made by arch rivals Real Madrid, who they defeated to take the league title.

 "We don't take drugs. We don't take dives. And we don't buy referees. We just play football," said Pique.

The team landed from London just a few hours earlier in Barcelona-El Prat airport.

Accompanied by the deafening blast of Brazilian samba music and cheered by thousands of fans under a baking hot sun, the heroes weaved through the city in their bus, decked out in Barcelona's red and blue and the word "Champions" on the
sides.

Wearing t-shirts emblazoned "CHA-MPI-ONS", coach Joseph Guardiola and his men were driven past the city's statue of Chrisopher Columbus, thronged with fans, some clinging on to the memorial for a better view.

The man, who scored the third goal, David Villa, could be seen spraying team mates with canned beer. Andres Iniesta leaned over the top of the bus to snap pictures.

In the previous night's festivities about 50,000 people turned out and police said that they detained 84 people for throwing objects, damaging bus shelters and other street furniture, public disorder or attacking police.

Around 130 people were injured during the all-night celebrations, most of them lightly, a local emergency services spokeswoman said on early Sunday. Thirty-seven police were among the injured.

Pique said earlier on Twitter that he would go with his team mates to finish the night's celebrations at a concert by his girlfriend Shakira, who is playing in Barcelona.
