Samu Costa, Copete, Darder and Aguirre on the 1-0 defeat against Barcelona

Find out what our stars and the boss had to say after a tough loss

The boss and Samu Costa, Jose Copete and Sergi Darder spoke to the media after our 1-0 defeat to FC Barcelona. Find out what the boss and the players had to say below:

Samu Costa

"We have to be proud of the work. Everyone gave their best performance. Barcelona was uncomfortable throughout the match and we know that if we continue like this, it will be very difficult to beat us."

José Copete

"It's a pity about the final result. I think the team did a good job from start to finish, showed a lot of character and personality, but in the end we didn't get anything positive out of it. An individuality of Lamín has given a goal and the three points to Barça.

"We knew we were going to suffer. In the end Barça subdues you with their great players. But in the end we were at the same level and Raiko made great saves and even saved a penalty. We lacked a little more finesse up top."

Sergi Darder

"You can look at it in two ways. If you look at it from the way we've been on the pitch, you can be proud of this team, but it's true that by playing this good match we are leaving with nothing. 

"If we are at one hundred percent, we compete with any team and we have shown that. We are also aware that if we are not at one hundred percent and we don't have our heads in the right place, we are not going anywhere. We can't drop points at home and even less so against direct rivals.

Javier Aguirre

"We should be proud of the match and sad for the defeat because we should not get used to losing. I have told them congratulations for the match and that we must continue and fight.

"It's true that when we lose we win something, there is always something that can be salvaged. I think the team is very much alive even though we are in a risk zone in the league and this does not allow us to relax at all."
