Messi: Valverde is not to blame

We are the ones to blame for losing to Liverpool 0-4, not Ernesto Valverde. This is what Argentine forward for Barcelona Lionel Messi said, talking about the current season.

“Losing to Liverpool was a big blow. I haven’t read or heard about it, but I was told that Valverde is highly criticized. But the players are to blame, not him. We knew the same thing that happened during last year’s match with Roma could happen this time, and it did. Making the same mistake two years in a row is inadmissible. Perhaps there is something mystical. We lost two matches, but everything was going well during the other matches.

Now we have a chance for a golden double. We will do everything we can to win Valencia in the final,” Messi said, reports sport.es.

The final match of the play-offs for the Spanish football cup in Sevilla will take place on May 25 and will start at 23:00 Yerevan time.
