FC Barcelona suffered a shock defeat at home against Celta Vigo and coach Luis Enrique was very frustrated with the loss as he said that he is “p****d off”.
FC Barcelona lost to Real Madrid on last weekend and it now appears that they are still not recovered from that defeat as they are relegated to the third spot in La Liga.
And coach Luis Enrique was furious with the defeat of his team in their own backyard. “I am not worried and I liked the players’ attitude but I am p****d off at not being able to win the game,” Said Luis Enrique. He was speaking in a post-match press conference.
FC Barcelona were unlucky at times as they hit the woodwork four times and Celta Vigo keeper Sergio made nine saves from dangerous looking shots of Blaugrana forwards.
“We had 19 shots, nine on target and hit the woodwork four times – sometimes the ball does not want go in. For sure there are things we can improve but I would sign up for having that many opportunities again in a match. Usually games like this one are games to win, but this was not our day. If you are not clinical and then have Sergio’s intervention, you can get results like this,” said the FC Barcelona boss.
The FC Barcelona boss wants his players to come back strongly after their second successive defeat. He said: “”I’d have taken this number of chances before the game, but I wouldn’t have taken this lack of composure. We have an interesting week coming up. We have to bounce back and show that we’re ready to resolve the situation”
FC Barcelona Are Still The Best In The World: Luis Suarez
Luis Suarez believes that despite of FC Barcelona’s surprise loss to Celta Vigo, they still remain the best team in the world.
“When ball doesn’t want to go in, it doesn’t go in – we had lots of chances, but just lacked luck,” Suarez told Barca TV. “They took advantage of one chance they created and won. We want trophies because we are best team in world. Fans should keep believing in us – the players are the first ones who want to turn this around.”
Luis Suarez also said that he is getting his match fitness back after completing his four month ban. “At the Bernabeu I was fine for the first 45 minutes, but then tiredness became a factor. I felt a bit lost when pressing and lacked communication with my team-mates. Against Celta, however, I felt more comfortable on the pitch.”
