Valverde in a state of bother as Barcelona suffered a shock defeat against Levante

Barcelona lost 3-1 at the hands of Levante which has left Valverde with many questions.

There were many talks regarding Valverde’s Barcelona future after Barcelona suffered a shock 3-1 defeat at the hands of Levante. Barcelona clearly have problems playing away from home. It was their third loss in six away games this season.

Levante ended Valverde’s men’s impressive seven-match winning run in all competitions. They scored 3 goals in 7 minutes in the second half which cancelled out Messi’s goal from the penalty spot in the first half.

Barcelona head coach, Ernesto Valverde faced many questions over his future after the match. He was asked whether he was unhappy with his players’ performances and thinking of resigning.

Valverde said: “No to both of those questions. I’m not thinking of resigning – only looking forward. Everything just collapsed. We didn’t start the second half well and we weren’t creating any danger.”

“Then, although they weren’t causing us too many problems, they put two goals past us in two minutes. The third goal after that really punished us. Our opponents play against us as if it’s the biggest game of the year and so you need to be able to respond.”

“We know what this result means and what it means to win at these grounds. You need to make a massive effort, but my team is used to that. They had a great second half and managed to beat us. We have to analyse what happened and ask ourselves why it did.”

Sergio Busquets said after the shocking defeat: “There’s no explanation. It was a very even game and we did the most difficult part by going ahead. But they landed a blow and it did us damage. They had a burst of 10 minutes and they play with a lot of people in attack. On one of the goals, we couldn’t get the second ball.”

“I think that the game was equal, but the result was excessive. We were on a good run before. There is a game in the Champions League soon and another in LaLiga.”
