Xavi: The Barcelona fans are proud of the players despite the defeat against Betis

Madrid: New Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez believes fans will feel proud of his team despite defeat in home against Real Betis, with an unanswered goal, Saturday night in the Spanish league. “It’s a shame because we didn’t deserve to lose,” Xavi said during the match’s press conference. “We didn’t have the same luck we had against Villarreal.” “We cannot allow such a goal to be conceded, but it is a pity that we lost because we deserved to win,” he added. “I think the fans will be proud of the team, we showed very well in the second half and Betis’ goal came when we weren’t at our best,” said Xavi. “Sometimes you have to know how to make tactical mistakes and stop your opponent from playing, but we didn’t,” he explained. “The Betis goal bothered me a lot because such a situation cannot happen to us,” he added. Xavi concluded by saying: “I told the players that this is football and that I am proud of them. They did their best and if there is anyone who deserves to win the game, it is Barcelona.” (Dpa)
