Escriba: We never had a chance

Fran Escriba has admitted that his Elche team ‘never had a chance’ after they lost 4-0 to Barcelona this evening.

An Alexis Sanchez hat-trick and a solitary Pedro goal gave the Blaugrana all three points at Camp Nou on Sunday.

“We never had a chance,” he told a Press conference. “I’m not satisfied with the performance though.

“We had the chance to make it 1-1, and if that had gone in we could have had a small chance. But it wasn’t to be.

“At 3-0, I wanted the match to end. In all honesty, I was thinking about the next game.

“A lot of teams have come here and lost – a lot of them playing in many different ways.

“But when you’re up against players of such quality it’s going to be difficult.”
