After Spanish Giants Real Madrid were crowned La Liga Champions yesterday night, many Barcelona fans, including club Captain, Lionel Messi came out to criticize the players and management for letting go of the League easily to Madrid, so the question is, who is to blame as Barcelona loses the league to Real Madrid???
Yesterday night, Spanish Giants Real Madrid were officially confirmed as La Liga Champions for a record 34th time after beating Villareal 2 – 1 and dashing the hopes of Barcelona of of possibly retaining the title.
Many Barcelona fans across the world feel that the team should have won the trophy if not for their lackadaisical attitude on the field of play and judging by the fact that Barca were two points ahead of Real Madrid before the league went on a forceful break as a result of CoronaVirus.
With one game left to go and Barcelona surprisingly losing 1 – 2 at home to Osasuna, Real Madrid now top the league standing with 6 points adrift of Barca. This development has caused lots of uproar in the Catalan City with some fans blaming the board, some blame the players while others blame the coach.
Some fans feel the board is killing the team because of bad decisions in terms of buying and selling of players. Fans believe that the team is aging and the board is not doing anything to bring in younger players or promote the Barca B players.
On the side of the players, a sect of the fans believe that the team is aging and also over dependent on Lionel Messi to win games for the team, which has made all the players lazy and undeserving to play for the team.
While on the side of the coach, Quique Setien, many believe that he does not have the charisma, qualities and experience to coach Barcelona. He only sits while his assistant, Eder Sarabia does all the work for him.
Barcelona’s only hope of winning any trophy this season is in the UEFA Champions League where they play Napoli in the 2nd leg of the second round and if they qualify, they will play German Champions, Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals, with many Barca fans already assuming that Barca might not win the trophy because the team is not in form.
As a Barcelona fan, who do you think deserves the blame for the present poor performance of the team?, is it the players, or the board or the coach?
