FC Barcelona ruined last chances of winning title – coach reacts

Barcelona 2-2 Getafe

Coach Tata Martino (who will probably leave the Catalans at the end of the season) reacts:

It’s not what we expected. There was a possibility of not reaching our objective, but not reaching it shouldn’t have been our mistake”. He added that “the end wasn’t just, at the Camp Nou and because of how the play played out.”

If we don’t take the last play into account, I believe that my team had the desire and push to win. We created chances to win, even though we weren’t at the level that Barça need to be at. “The responsibility of the tactical errors always fall on the manager, both in attack an defence.”

“It hasn’t been a good year, neither individually or collectively, because I was not able to make my intensions for the team reality and because we never showed Barça’s best version. It has been a difficult season with a lot of footballing issues.”

“Of the three teams to fight for the league title, we were the least consistent. I don’t think the players came into the final stretch of the season tired or fatigued, and I have no complaints with their commitment,.”
