Puyol faced the press after training this morning, claiming: “this is a good time for me to speak. We have a final ahead of us – one of the best possible games- I want to assure the fans that we will be giving everything in the game and if we are all united then it will be easier. The only way forward is to stay united.We know that we have done some things wrong, but I want to say loud and clear that we will keep fighting till the end and there’s still plenty that can happen over the next five league games Puyol was quick to accept the blame for the two defeats, explaining: “we know that we have done some things wrong, but I want to say loud and clear that we will keep fighting till the end and there’s still plenty that can happen over the next five league games. There have been times when we haven’t been consistent, but right now we have to look forwards, we have a big final coming up and a chance to give the fans something to really cheer about- I’m sure that a win in Valencia will give us a boost that will help us turn things round”

Working hard to be fit for Mestalla

With Puyol, Piqué and Bartra all struggling to get fit for the Cup Final, Puyol explained: “I’m working hard to get fit, as are Marc  and Gerard. We’ve got two more days and we are doing all we can. We’ll see what our chances of making the game are tomorrow, Tuesday”. Asked about his own future, Puyol explained: “ I’ve not made a decision, I don’t know what will happen. I’m fighting hard to be able to play again this season, but things haven’t turned out as I wanted”. I’m fighting hard to be able to play again this season, but things haven’t turned out as I wantedPuyol also insisted that the players are “behind Tata all the way” and that eh team: “are still hungry for titles and to make history”- Puyol also ruled out a whole sale clearance at the end of the season-. “I certainly don’t think we need a revolution here  - you have to have a way of working, a plan and stick with it whether you are winning one title or two”
