Barcelona advisor, Jordi Cruyff, has singled out Ferran Torres and Ansu Fati for praise following the team’s LaLiga El Clasico 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid on Sunday.
Real Madrid defeated Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu, thanks to goals from Karim Benzema, Federico Valverde, and Rodrygo.
Torres did the scoring for the Catalan club against Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
But Cryuff was not happy with Barca’s defending against the Los Blancos but lauded Fati and Torres.
Ansu entered well. He was also decisive in the goal. The goal is great for Ferran’s confidence. That always helps the team,” Cryuff was quoted by Sportskeeda as saying.
Very important games are coming, and we have to get up as soon as possible. To get the winning streak back.”
He added, “The 1-0 made us play urgently and leave more space. In football, you have to defend well and take advantage of what you have upfront. If you don’t, you tend to lose despite having possession. When you fall, you have to get up.”
