Ernesto Valverde: 'We didn't have a good first half'
Arturo Vidal, Carles Aleñá and Gerard Piqué also react to the 4-3 defeat at home to Real Betis
“We didn’t play well in the first half” confessed a disappointed Ernesto Valverde after his first ever home defeat as Barça manager. “And we just couldn’t work our way back into the game.”
“We’d been on a good run. But we didn’t start this game well at all. There was something generally missing. We upped the intensity in the second half, and managed to create a lot more than we were doing before.”
“It’s still nice to be going into the international break as leaders, but we always expect a lot more of ourselves. This season’s Liga is turning out to be very competitive and today was a reminder of how hard it is to win games.”
