Del Bosque: No Barca alarms

Vicente del Bosque doesn’t believe Barcelona need to be concerned despite going three La Liga games without a win.

The Spain Coach told an interview with Catalunya Radio that despite drawing with Villarreal and losing to Real Madrid and Real Sociedad, there shouldn’t be undue concern at Camp Nou.

“The problem is we make radical judgements after every Wednesday or every weekend,” Del Bosque noted, Sport reports.

“Barca are having a great campaign and I don’t think that, after some adverse outcomes, there should be alarm bells ringing.

“Evaluations should be done at the end [of the season]. I think Atletico Madrid and Madrid would like to be in their position.”

Del Bosque also discussed Barca defender Gerard Pique, and his use of Periscope.

“He’s very involved with his club and with the national team. He’s a great professional, and he’s agreeable and friendly,” he continued.

“He’s not been harmful, in any way, to the national team, on the contrary. Periscope? What can I say?

“You have to adapt to the times and Gerard is cool. We’re not prohibiting it, no fines or that nonsense. And who knows if UEFA don’t regulate it.”
