Xavi Hernandez appeared after the game to talk about the feelings that the 3-1 defeat against Valladolidwhich is the second in a row after the one suffered before the Real society last Saturday. A Spanish coach was somewhat disappointed by this result, but he understands the players after having achieved the objective of the Liga.
“It is difficult for us to prepare the matches. The objective is accomplished. The result is the fruit of our relaxation. Two errors have meant 2-0 and thus it costs twice as much. We have been very good before minute 20 with four clear chances. But in the second half we went down and Valladolid has been better. He has many more needs than us.”
«We knew that he had alternated two systems, with a line of 5 and 4. They have tightened us well and it has been perfect for them. With two of our mistakes… Then Jordi Masip has been great and we have failed, but this is a matter of relaxation and already having the title in hand.
understand the player
«I have to understand the footballer. We carry a lot of load, with a World Cup… and that weighs. We have covered the objective of the Super Cup and League. These games count and we want to give a good image. 50-50. Naturalness because the players are loaded, although we want to give a better image.
“Yes Yes. Zamora’s goal is clear. He also wanted to give Iñaki Peña a chance. The positive note is the goal by Robert (Lewandowski). Now we have to focus on individual records because the League is achieved.
«I don’t know, this is a question for the Committee. I have no opinion here. Yesterday I made my opinion on racism clear.”
“I am proud of having been a team, a family, in bad times we have been a block, solvency, order… A fantastic double”.
