Trainer Ernesto Valverde was delighted with the narrow 1-2 victory of FC Barcelona on a visit to PSV in the group stage of the Champions League, but he acknowledged that his team, the hands should squint with the three points.
“They played well and we have less good. That is pretty much the story of the race. That everyone could see,” said Valverde in the Philips Stadium in Eindhoven.
“We were especially in the beginning, hard by their way of pressure, and by us losing the ball. That encouraged them. We got after the first twenty minutes a bit more grip, but it remained to the end difficult.”
