Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has called the club “weak” as they lost their La Liga title to rivals Real Madrid following a 2-1 defeat to 10-man Osasuna last night ending their 30-game unbeaten home run in La Liga.
“We didn’t expect to finish in this way, but it sums up the year for us. We are a weak team who can be beaten with enough intensity and enthusiasm.
We have lost a lot of points which we shouldn’t have done. We have been very inconsistent.” Messi said after the defeat
“We need to be self-critical, starting with the players, but also across the entire club. We are Barcelona, and we are obliged to win every game.” He further stated
A victory over Osasuna would have done Barca any good as newly crowned La Liga champions Real Madrid beat Villarreal 2-1 to win the title.
Barca’s only hope of a major trophy now is the UEFA Champions League. They host Napoli in the Last 16 second leg on Saturday 8th August, having drawn 1-1 in Italy.
