Speaking after the draw with Valencia, Barcelona manager Javi Hernandez said: We deserved to win, we did everything. What has happened in recent weeks in terms of performance has happened again.
This match sums up the season for us. We are training until the end but it all depends on the confidence of the players. We should be one of the teams with the worst results in Europe. Today I am very frustrated, he added.
Barcelona had 16 shots on goal at the Mestalla and hit the target eight times, while the opponents realized four of 11 chances. In the previous three matches, Barcelona had 58 shots on goal, 22 of which came on target, but which were scored ina total of five goals.
Addressing his players, Xavi said: We must demand more from ourselves, he told reporters after the final whistle. We are not efficient enough. Whether it’s the last pass, strikes… Today it went very badly because we got into very clear positions to finish the game. We are not performing at the right level and we need to be more self-critical.
But that doesn’t mean I still don’t believe in my players. The fact is that they lack the confidence to score those goals.
