Barcelona is a total hell these days. The results do not occur so much in the League as in the Champions League and a team leader revealed a critical situation.
The candidate to the presidency of the club Joan Laporta revealed this Thursday that after 1-4 of the Barcelona team against PSG “a player who came back after being injured for a long time (Piqué) “admitted that the dressing room was emotionally” destroyed “by the defeat.
“We have to be by the side of the players, they need it, especially at a time when they cannot count on the support of the public in the stadium,” Laporta added in this regard. In addition, he said that the team will have to go to Paris “to maintain dignity and with a spirit of comeback.”
According to Laporta, who in the second leg would already be the president if he wins the elections on March 7, “an atmosphere of comeback must be created because we already did it”, referring to the historic 6-1 against the Parisian team.
Regarding the Copa del Rey tie against Sevilla, which Barcelona lost 2-0 in the absence of the second leg, Laporta said that “the game must still be played and yesterday Sevilla already scored three goals (Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League).
And about Barcelona’s options in the League, the candidate said that “Atlético de Madrid can still lose points like they did against Levante.” Thus, he asked Ronald Koeman and his players to regain “the winning mentality” and “not to break down.”
Asked about Barcelona’s chances of signing Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland, the two protagonists of the first leg of the ‘Champions’ round of 16, Laporta answered about the second that “he has the cards” and will play them in case of winning the elections.
