Josep Maria Bartomeu talked to the press after Barça B’s victory at the Miniestadi. The FC Barcelona president said, “we have complete confidence in this team and we have to be by their side. I have no doubt that the fans are behind the team.” He added that he’s convinced the fans will back Barça at the Camp Nou this Wednesday in the return leg of the Champions League tie against Manchester City.

Despite the defeat on Saturday to Valladolid, Bartomeu said that “there are many points still in play in La Liga and we’re very much alive in the other competitions. It’s normal for there to be some criticism, but the Board, the members and the fans need to have confidence in these players. And even more so now that we’re in the final stretch of the season.” Lastly, when asked about Wednesday’s match, Bartomeu said, “the result from the first leg is good but you never know when it comes to football - we have to keep on working.”
