Enrique takes entire blame for defeat to Juventus
FC Barcelona chief coach Luis Enrique has taken the entire blame for the Catalan football giants' 0-3 defeat to Juventus in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-finals tie here.
Barcelona have been underwhelming this season losing to Malaga in the weekend and then conceding two goals by halftime against Juventus on Tuesday. Paulo Dybala scored both the goals with Giorgio Chiellini adding gloss to the scoreline with a third strike.
"It was a difficult first half, very similar to the one in Paris and the second was much better. If you gift the first half, then obviously you're going to have problems," Enrique was quoted as saying by Mediaset.
"A coach does everything to help the team and prepare them, but evidently I did not. We have to improve, learn from these mistakes, analyse the game carefully and realise where we went wrong," he said.
