Luis Suarez has spoken up about Barcelona’s La Liga title chances.
He admits that if the Catalan club lets the title go, it’s because the squad is to blame and no one else. With only two games left in the league and being one point behind rivals Real Madrid, Barcelona’s La Liga might be slipping away this time.
“In the league you have to be self-critical – we let it escape ourselves,” he told Mundo Deportivo.
“We are aware that we depended on ourselves and do not find any excuse. Now, for our pride and for the prestige of Barca, we have to win the remaining two games and then focus fully on the only title we can fight, which is the Champions League.
“If we perform at the level of why we are at this club, we can fight anyone. A failure in a match can be expensive, so we have to be very vigilant and we need everyone to be able to get the Champions League.”
“It is clear that if we had been up to the task in games like against Sevilla, which is a rival that can tie you, but especially in Vigo, which was a very hard blow and Atletico Madrid right after,” the forward said.
“Minimising the details of the VAR is sometimes difficult. Yes, Gerard and the president made their demonstrations public, but I think that the rivals were also fighting important things like Athletic [Bilbao], Getafe … and they were the ones affected.
“This time, not only were we harmed, but I think we shouldn’t look for so many excuses, but rather be self-critical and face reality.”
