FC Barcelona Boss, Xavi Hernandez has expressed “huge disappointment” suffered by his side after they were beaten 2-1 in the Europa League playoff second leg match by Erik Ten Hag’s Man United on Thursday evening at the Threatre of Dreams.


Robert Lewandowski’s penalty gave the Blagurana an early lead, and they played well overall in the opening period.


However, in the second half of the match, they were outclassed by the hosts and eventually fell victim to two goals from the Brazilian duo of Fred and Antony.


“In Europe, little things that we have no control over could decide the outcome of a match. That’s why we’re out”. 

“While it appears that we have fared far better than we did last year, we still lost to Bayern Munich, Inter Milan, and Manchester. We have fallen short of expectations.

To try again the next season, we must make a significant lot of self and try to be more competitive “With reference to recent failures in the Champions League and its inferior cousin Barca’s elimination this evening, Xavi stated.

“It’s unfortunate because the squad stood up and deserved better. They are quite strong physically. Before attempting to look ahead, “We could have dominated the game more.

“The only thing that is good is that we already have a game on Sunday and need to concentrate on Almeria and the cup semifinal on Thursday.

There are still two titles up for grabs, and we intend to win them because they are crucial for the team, he said.
