Gerard Martino, Mexico coach has revealed his worst nightmares from his time as coach of Barcelona.
“From the results side of things, it wasn’t a bad year,” he said, as quoted by Sport. “We won a trophy and we played in a final, but at Barcelona what matters is how many trophies you win.
“However, I say it was my worst year because my contribution as coach started and finished with the management of the team.
“There were concerns that my management had a short life and, for me, the Clasico against Real Madrid that we won 2-1 at home was key.
“We scored the second goal running into space and if Barcelona ran into space, it was because something did not fit together.
“But I understand that, if we could add anything to the team, it was not to deny the possibility of running.
“Speed was going to make Barcelona more complete because when there were lapses in the dominance of the opposition, it was good to go back and move into space. That was carried out the following year, with Luis Enrique.”
