Martino: It’s been a bad week

Tata Martino has admitted that Barcelona are ‘under pressure’ after last weekend’s loss to Real Sociedad.

The Coach has conceded that following the 3-1 defeat at Anoeta, his men are under the microscope this weekend when they host Almeria.

“The result in the Anoeta puts more pressure on us against Almeria,” he told a Press conference.

“It’s been a bad week, the same as it always is after a bad result.”

The Argentine tactician though, is insistent that the League title is still in their hands.

“The League title is still in our hands but we need to win all our matches and if we play well, we’ll have a better chance.

“The team is very self critical, both the players and the coaching staff, and that’s why I have complete confidence in a good reaction”.

“What they said was a synthesis of the way the players work. They’re a really solid group.

“What matters right now is that we’ve got to March with a good chance in the three competitions.  When the team plays well, that helps the individual to shine.

“I don’t like asking the public for anything.  What we have to do is to give them reasons, week after week, to come to the stadium.”
