LIGA – “I thought we were going to go home super motivated… but no”: Xavi disappointed after the defeat against Rayo Vallecano

Another unexpected defeat at home in La Liga on Sunday, against Rayo Vallecano this time (0-1), and Barça’s position among the top four in La Liga, synonymous with direct qualification for the Champions League, is weakened. Something to piss off Xavi: “Angry, upset, pissed off, disappointed… Say it how you want. The same scenario repeats itself, the same as against Cadiz“, analyzed the technician.

Because indeed, as against Cadiz, Barça generally dominated its subject, touched the post and the bar, but lacked efficiency. “The ball did not want to go incommented Xavi, fatalistic. It happens, sometimes. But on arrival, we complicate the match ourselves, and we put ourselves in a big problem. We complicate our lives for the qualification for the Champions League“. Indeed, before this meeting, Barça had a late game and therefore the possibility of putting Sevilla (3rd) at 3 points, Atlético (4th) at 5 points and Betis (5th) at 9 points. is nothing and the Blaugranas see Fékir and his getting closer to the top 4. What to have some cold sweats.

This does not mean that Xavi points the finger at his players. The Spaniard feels that his group needs confidence to advance its last pawns in the final sprint. “During the talk, I thought we were all going to go back to the field hyper motivated… but nohe lamented. I couldn’t find the levers to motivate the players. I admit the critics, I am primarily responsible. But it’s all together that we’ll get through this“. On May 7, Barça will receive Betis Sevilla in a shock from the top of the table which could redistribute some cards, it will be necessary to remobilize the troops by then.
