Luis Enrique unhappy with slow start

Luis Enrique could not hide his ire after watching Barça B lose heavily in Cartagena and refused to make any excuses for the performance after opening the season with two victories.

The Asturian was clearly unhappy with his players after the 5-1 reverse and told the press afterwards exactly how he felt. "We never go into the game," he fumed. "The two early goals were the key. I also regret that we did not compete and lacked attitude."

Bad start

"We did not start well and we lost each and every tackle, while we were not at our level and in the first 25 minutes it showed as we conceded two goals," Luis Enrique continued. "In this division those kinds of things are not possible."

Beginning slowly is not something that the Barça B boss will accept. "At this level there a lot of goals scored early on and to try to come back after letting into in a place like Cartagena is very difficult," he continued. "If we had scored a goal before half-time then maybe it could have been different."

No mistakes

Luis Enrique did see one positive in the outcome. "After winning the first two matches we were the team to watch, but we have only just come up and at this level you cannot make mistakes. We were not the best before and we are not the worst now."

Player thoughts
Reflecting on the 5-1 defeat by Cartagena Nolito stated: "In this division we are capable of beating anyone, but then anyone can also beat us. We have to continue working hard and continue to learn." Andreu Fontàs added: "We did not start well and I think there was a foul leading up to the first goal there was a foul, but that cannot be an excuse as they had a lot of quality going forward."
