Ernesto Valverde: 'We need to fight our way out of this bad run'

Two points out of a possible nine not good enough for the FC Barcelona, who has every faith that his team can get the season back on course - starting against Tottenham Luis Suárez, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba also speak after the draw at Camp Nou

Speaking after today’s 1-1 draw at home to Athletic Club, Barça coach Ernesto Valverde admitted that “we need to fight our way out of this bad run, lift our heads up and keep looking forwards. This has been a difficult week. We were hoping to get nine points and we’ve only got two.”

“We knew that Athletic were going to put us under deep pressure from the very start today and that this season we have been letting in some rather absurd goals. But there other things that we need to keep doing.”

“We have a big enough squad to rotate the bench. Today the team never lost their grip on the match.”

“We have another difficult game coming up on Wednesday but we need to take a big step forward in the Champions League. The team has a strong sense of responsibility and we’ll be giving it everything we’ve got against Tottenham.”
