Kishimoto: “As for Sakura… Sasuke… what about Sasuke? Naruto is close and she worries about Naruto as well, but as expected, she [loves] Sasuke.
Interviewer: "Because of this, she acted quite haughty towards that guy. She used Naruto’s love for her and told him she loved him."
Kishimoto: "On the contrary…. I felt like depicting an honest girl, with a surprisingly stubborn impression.”
And Kishimoto also comments:
"So... she became such a character, but... well... from here on, maybe I should draw her showing a bit more spirit.
I figured I had placed her in a heroin-like situation
But from the readers I was told harshly that she wasn't heroin-ish at all
Perhaps I should show depict her a bit more like a heroin
Because you say 'Hinata Hinata,' I say 'She's not Hinata'"
And from what I've read in the comments, the love part is in brackets because it's highly suspected that Kishi said loved (as in loved Sasuke) and that it's correctly translated with the help of someone that knows Japanese.
