Luis Suarez Blames Coaches For Barcelona Draw Against Celta, But Fans Point To Another Player

KEY POINTS

  • Luis Suarez takes dig at Barcelona coaches following Celta Vigo draw
  • Suarez said it's the coaches' job to fix what's wrong as players are giving it all they've got
  • Barcelona fans think Antoine Griezmann was to blame for the draw that saw the club behind Real Madrid in points

Luis Suarez thinks the coaches were to blame for Barcelona’s draw against Celta Vigo, but some fans believe it’s the fault of another player.

Real Madrid became the favorites to win the 2019-20 LaLiga title after Barcelona dropped points away in a 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo Saturday (June 27). After the match, Barca striker Suarez spoke to the media to defend the team and took aim at the coaching staff.

Suarez scored both goals for the Catalans, but a thrilling free kick from Iago Aspas equaled his impressive brace. Ultimately, Barcelona has had a poor away record this season, but according to the Uruguayan, it is the coaches’ job to fix what’s wrong as the players are already giving it all they have got.

"What's wrong with us? That's what coaches are for, to analyse the situations. We gave everything on the field of play  and you are left with the feeling that we are dropping lots of points away from home which we did not drop other seasons," Suarez told Movistar LaLiga (via Besoccer.com).


"The feeling is negative, we have dropped two more than important points. If we want to keep up there in the fight for the title, we had to win all the games and hope Real Madrid dropped points once. You're left with a feeling of frustration,” he continued.

Devastated with how things have been going on in the dressing room, Suarez called for the team to regroup and try to figure out how to win the remaining crucial matches of the season.

"We have difficult games left. We knew this would be one of our most difficult away games together with the Villarreal one and we've got Atletico Madrid at home. We dropped two points and you have to correct things to try and improve," Suarez pointed out.

Fans believe that Barcelona could have ended the match with a 2-1 victory. The second goal from Aspas changed the story, and based on the fans’ point of view, it was Antoine Griezmann who let that happen.

Give Me Sport compiled a series of comments from social media slamming the Frenchman for turning his back at the end of the wall.

"Griezmann ups his stakes for Real Madrid player of the year," one fan said.
