Barca’s left-back Jordi Alba is disappointed by their fans disrespectful reaction. When they started whistling, after his goal was disallowed by VAR.
Penalty of Messi saved Barca
Jordi Alba expressed his disappointment that Barcelona fans whistled the team during their nervous 1-0 victory over Real Sociedad, while he also defended club assistant manager Eder Sarabia. A 1-1 draw against Napoli in the Champions League followed by a 2-0 defeat by El Clasico from bitter rivals Real Madrid and supporters at Camp Nou were on edge, as their side worked to what it would have looked third consecutive game without a win. However, the penalty of Lionel Messi in the 81st minute saved Barcelona from the blackouts. The fans made their displeasure with the performance of the team heard early – with which Jordi got down to business.
They should respect us
“Nobody likes to play badly or how we play at the moment, but I don’t like whistling in the 15th minute with an assist,” he told reporters after the game. “Nobody likes when fans go against you, especially in your stadium. Our attitude is right, and all the players betray everything on the field. I’m not going to hide. Just as I respect everyone, they should respect me too. – I appreciate the Barça fans. Even falling early in the UEFA Champions League in recent seasons, they are stuck with the team. “It’s not easy when things don’t go away, but we have to live with it in the end.
We know that if we are not in the best condition, it won’t be elementary. We must be strong mentally to turn the tide. “The 30-year-old left-back also jumped to defend the new boss Quique Setien’s assistant manager Eder Sarabia, who has been heavily criticized by the media for his recent outbursts.” It’s like Sarabia killed someone,” Alba continues. “Can the managing staff not indicate themselves as they want? The interests he made are the most normal in the world.” He lives the game intensely. He did not show a lack of respect for anyone. I would do the same in his position – or worse. We are not annoyed, not at all.”
