Yesterday night when Barcelona fans across the world expected Barcelona to beat Real Madrid at the Camp Nou but failed to impress with Real Madrid playing better, Barcelona fans have called for the sack for the Spanish coach after a shambolic display in a match that ended in a 0 – 0 draw.
Barcelona fans approached the game with excitement and hope that Barcelona will continue from where they stopped last season and beat the Madrid side convincingly but the reverse was the case as Zidane’s side were the better team of the night.
Real Madrid deserved a win for their impressive display away from home but luck was on Barcelona’s side to get a draw after Gareth Bale’s goal was canceled after Mendy who provided the assist was ruled offside.
Barcelona fans were disappointed at the shambolic display from Barcelona despite playing in front of their over 90, 000 fans who were singing and chanting all through the game. The El-Classico also gained much attention as a result of the political unrest in Catalonia that the led to the suspension of the match in October but the match did not lived up to expectation of fans.
The only positive and consolation Barcelona fans were able to take home was that, yesterday night, Ansu Fati became the youngest player in history to feature in an El-Classico match, at the age of 17 years and 48 days.
The record was formerly held by former Barcelona forward, Bojan Krkic before it was broken yesterday.
Notable Barcelona players who were outstanding on the night included goalkeeper, Ter Stegen, Gerard Pique and midfielder who also to debut in his first El-Classico, Frankie De Jong.
However, angry and disappointed Barcelona fans took to popular social media platform, Twitter to register their disappointment and heavily criticized head coach, Ernesto Valverde in the process.
Read some of their tweets below:
Rakitic and Suarez playing for 90'. We played today as if we were playing at the Bernabeu in the champions league with a 3 goal lead. We should have gotten these 3 points today.
I hope Valverde's wife cheats on him with Vidal. I'm done with this pussy of a manager man.

Without any doubt Barca is dead its only Messi and Ter Stegen saving them.
Valverde (Barcelona coach) has lost it, we only have Madrid Valverde #ElClasico is no longer classic since Ronaldo left.

Ernesto Valverde is a coward.

A Clasico to show any fool that dares to attack Busquets: shut the fuck up.
RM ate us up. Now midfield presence at all for us.
Giving Valverde a third season as coach is already one of the dumbest mistakes our club has ever made.
No UCL, maybe not even Liga.
