MADRID, 16 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The coach of FC Barcelona, Xavi Hernández, explained the complications his team encountered this Sunday in the visit to Getafe (0-0), although he pointed out that the biggest problem was the lack of effectiveness of his team at a bad moment in football .
“We are not in the best moment of the season, in many things. Neither in play nor in effectiveness. We have tried in every way, we have been uncomfortable. The state of the pitch has not helped us,” he said in a conference Press at the Coliseum.
The Barça coach valued the difficulty that the Madrid grass represented for his team’s possession game, in addition to the defensive complications that the rival posed. “They have generated very little for us and we have had four or five clear chances to score. More than frustration, we have to keep trying. It is a considerable distance but we have to win games and improve in the game”, he pointed out about the fight for the league title .
“You have to recover sensations, it was a very stuck game. Those who have not played football cannot understand it, Getafe has also been harmed in two counters, the ball did not travel. It is one more point in a very difficult field. For ambition and desire is not. In a slow field, stuck and they are very aggressive and very well organized, it has cost us. There is no need to be alarmed, it is a point in a difficult field. The grass has harmed us a lot in terms of circulation, uncheck , the ball did not run. Normally it hurts the team that usually has the ball more,” he added.
On the other hand, Xavi did not want to personalize in Robert Lewandowski his team’s lack of goal and pointed out that they do not like the 4:15 p.m. “We are used to playing without sun, without it sounding like an excuse, it’s obvious. They are streaks, like the team, Robert is still the Pichichi of the League, the second round is good but not as extraordinary as the first. The goals will come “, settled.
