Barcelona coach Luis Enrique rues missed chances after defeat
FC Barcelona coach Luis Enrique expressed his frustration after his side crashed to their second defeat of the season.
Second half goals from Michael Krohn-Delhi and Vicente Iborra were enough to give Sevilla their first win over Barcelona since 2007, despite Neymar pulling a penalty back for the Catalan team with just over 15 minutes to go on Saturday, reports Xinhua.
Barcelona hit the post four times in the game and laid a siege to the Sevilla goal in the closing minutes, but it was not enough to give them a point or dispel the feeling that all is not right with the side.
“In order to fully evaluate the game, I am going to wait to see it again perfectly and to assess it as it deserves to be looked at,” said Enrique in his post-game press conference.
“It’s incredible that we are going away from here with just one goal, but we had 10 bad minutes in which they (Sevilla) penalised us and we have to congratulate them for their effort and the result,” he added.
Enrique admitted he liked his side to have more control of games and said he always looked to create as many chances as possible.
“You want that because the best players normally take them. We are not at our best right now, but that is going to change, I have no doubt about that,” he said.
