Barcelona Players root for Valverde, say he is not to blame for Atletico defeat

From Alkali YUSUF Salisu, Abuja

Barcelona players insist that Ernesto Valverde should not be blame for their 3-2 lost against Atletico Madrid in Jidda.

The players also mentioned that they need to improve to avoid the mistakes they made in the Supercopa de Espana match.

“The coach should not be blame, the mistakes are ours and we should not make them,” they said.

“We do not know if their defeat will help us improve, but this defeat shows that there are things to correct.

“It shows us that these are mistakes that should not be committed, because we were in control of the game and later we allow them to hit us on the counter-attack.”

Two of our goals scored by Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique were disallowed after being reviewed by VAR.

“We have already said what we think of VAR,” The players added.

“The most logical thing is the goal-line technology, the offside line can be wrong because it is made by a human being like us.”
