Sergio Busquets blamed individual defeat for 2-1 defeat to Cadiz.
Barcelona succumbed to an embarassing defeat due to some shocking bit of defending.
Along with Ronald Koeman, Busquets questioned the performances of some players. “Individual errors have cost us a lot of points,” Busquets said after the game. “The team are different in the Champions League.
“In the last few games, mistakes have defined the match and it becomes more difficult. We cannot blame attitude or commitment, but starting like this makes things difficult.”
After Saturday’s defeat, Barca sit eighth in the table, six points behind rivals Real Madrid and twelve points behind leaders, Atletico Madrid.
“It’s worrisome to suffer so many defeats,” Busquets added. “The more points we drop, the further we’ll fall from the top positions, which are where we aim to be.
“We reacted today, but when we concede two goals it’s harder. When it seemed that we had a chance, we made another mistake and complicated things.”
It was always going to be difficult for Koeman to turn things around following a period of disparity at the Camp Nou. Player morale is at an all-time low and it could take a while before this Barca side is fully thumping opponents once again.
