Luis Enrique shields players

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique was pleased at his team’s win at La Rosaleda, but was not entirely happy with the performance, as he told journalists during his post-match presser. “The first half was so imprecise, lacklustre.

The coach refused to play the blame game though when asked about individual performances. “The players aren’t machines, today it’s been a general thing, we can’t focus on one player alone,” said the coach, who went on to add that “it’s enough that the players showed a clear desire to win.”
