The coach of Barcelona, Luis Enrique was mildly critical of his players after the 1:1 draw against Real Sociedad in La Liga as a guest. The coach of the Catalans described the match via 1x2 tips as the worst team ever since he stood at the helm two seasons and a half.
The result increased the gap to the leader Real Madrid. Barca has already a liability by six points just before the El Clasico next weekend.
`It is very easy to analyze the match via 1x2 tips against Sociedad - they simply outnumbered us in every aspect of the game.`, said Enrique. `The team of Eusebio Sacristan stuck out through us, we weren`t allowed to give more than 5 passes, he pressed us well as he wanted to. Real has won all duels on the pitch.`
`It can be said that a zero draw at the half-time was something like a miracle. In the second part, we have improved ourselves a little bit, but we were not even close to our level. Take a peek at the game passes to Messi and isolated without Neymar to do something more.`
`It was our worst game since I have been coaching Barcelona during those two and a half years. We don`t deserve even the point that we got.`
Enrique commented and the emotional statement by Gerard Pique, that the League is lost if the team does not display response. `I think it is dangerous to speak when the passion of the game are still there. It is never appropriate. The correct behavior is for us to believe that there are a lot of things to improve.`, added Enrique.
