Luis Suarez blasted Barcelona player’s lack of communication as the La Liga leaders dropped more points for the second week running after being held to a goalless draw by Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
His words, “There was a lack of communication in the first half,”
“That’s something we have to improve. We lost balls, we didn’t speak. We have to ask for the ball more. It’s the little details [that count].”
“We’re on the back of a run of a lot of matches and maybe that was a plus for [Athletic],” Suarez added. “They were better rested for the game. But we created chances. Both teams had chances. I don’t know if a draw is fair. Both teams did enough to win.”
Goalkeeper Ter Stegen also admitted a tough fixture list caused his side’s problems in Bilbao.
His words, “Maybe there’s an element of tiredness because of the schedule,” he conceded. “February’s a loaded month. I think everyone’s happy that we can now rest for one or two days.
“After that little break, we can come back and look at what went wrong and where we need to improve.”
