Suarez: cluster of coincidences
Luis Suarez seemed to have been in a state of daze, as he suggested that it was a bad day in office for the Madrid players as almost every mistake was punished by FC Barcelona, but was careful enough not to sound too sympathetic as he warned his teammates of complacency.
a It was a cluster of coincidences. Madrid are one of the best teams in the world, but we took advantage of their mistakes.a
a The season is very long and Madrid are a great team.a
The result was truly one-sided, as Real Madrid found it hard to match with Barca who were completely on song despite Lionel Messia s absence in the first half of the El Clasico. Madrid have been struggling with a lot of issues that needs to be sorted out first before they can really go on to challenge Barca this season.
Beniteza s relationship with his players has been a major talking point and if the rumours are true then Perez might well need to take a step to back on which side to back.
