Valencia coach: Barcelona’s penalty was fake and we didn’t deserve to lose
Valencia coach Jose Bordalas confirmed, after losing to Barcelona (3-1) on Sunday evening at the summit of the ninth round of La Liga, that “the penalty kick was decisive in the result of the match, which was equal before, and it is an incorrect penalty.”
“We cannot talk about a fair or unfair result, but I think we did not deserve to lose (3-1,” Bordalas said during the press conference after the match hosted by the Camp Nou stadium.
Despite the loss, the 57-year-old expressed his “happiness with the performance” of his players, despite not achieving any victory in 5 consecutive matches.
Bordalas stressed the need to “improve on the defensive level”, especially since they received “many goals”.
The Valencia coach concluded his conference by talking about the level of the Catalan team, and said: “The potential and ability of Barca cannot be questioned in any way. This team has faced great difficulties with penalties and absences, and will return to competition with the best.”
The “bats” fell into the trap of the third loss this season, knowing that the team did not taste the taste of victory for the fifth consecutive round (3 defeats and two draws), despite the strong start with three victories and a draw.
The team’s balance froze at 12 points in ninth place.
