Xavi admits that Barcelona need to improve

Barcelona manager Xavi has voiced out his frustration with his side’s recent dip in form.

Barcelona started the season on a very bright note compared to their previous seasons.

With the hope of stating a claim this season, Xavi has seen his side struggle in the UCL and now in the Spanish La Liga.

Barca lost their El Classico encounter by 3-1 to Real Madrid.

“The feeling is that we are in a negative dynamic,” he said. “We tried. We have faith, self-esteem. We tried. Luckily, it’s only three points. It was an opportunity to keep up with the leaders and we leave empty-handed.

“We have to change the dynamic. We were doing very well in La Liga. We’re still under construction, but we have to improve a lot.

“We had Real Madrid back in their box. We had our moments, but we haven’t made the most of it. Real Madrid are leaders. We’re in a very negative dynamic that we have to change as quick as we did before.

“I don’t think we were bad in the first half. We dominated. I believe we had our chances, but they were very good in the second half. We lacked a lot of force. If we want to win these games, we have to change our mentality. We are not in a positive dynamic. In the end, we found self-esteem but it wasn’t enough. We are in a bad dynamic.”
