Luis Enrique: “There was only one team on the pitch”

After his team’s 4-1 defeat in Granada on Saturday, Barça B coach Luis Enrique Martínez admitted: “there was only one team on the pitch. All we can do is look to the next game”.

Luis Enrique offered no excuses after the team’s fourth defeat of the campaign and acknowledged: “we failed to overcome Granada in any important phase of the game - there was only one team on the pitch and Granada were the better team right from the start”.

Against the run of play

We were unable to bring the ball out as we wanted to and couldn’t move the ball around to create danger – really we never looked able to stand up to them at any moment”.

Praise for Granada

For the coach, “Granada are the best team we’ve faced in this league so far. The stadium was full and the fans were really behind them. If they always play like that, then they must be one of the favourites to go up. I’d like to congratulate them, they were better than us in every phase of play and they are the team who have most limited our ability to get into a game”.

Look to the next game

Luis Enrique concluded: “all we can do now is prepare for the next game”, which will be on Friday a the Mini Estadi against Recreativo de Huelva, who were relegated from the top flight at the end of the 2008/09 season.

The hero of the game for the hosts has to be Alexandre Geijo who scored all four goals for his team to take his tally to 11 for the season, but Luis Enrique didn’t put it all down to the hosts’ striker: “if you are not particularly sharp one day, then many of the chances the other team make, result in you making mistakes and that just means the game is even more one-sided”.
