    Lucho disappointed, Pique worried

    Post match quotes from Luis Enrique and Barca's best man after 0-0 draw against Malaga at Camp Nou.




    Lucho:


    "We are disappointed," he conceded in his postgame news conference. "We didn't expect them to be so deep."

    "The density of the opposition players was incredible. They've put 10 men in their area so there was always going to be very few clear chances."

    "We've had enough chances despite that, though. In the second half we generated a lot. But it's always difficult against a rival that sits so deep. We weren't counting on losing these two points."


    "We tried until the end and we kept our faith. There was only one team [in it] and I can only congratulate my players. Now to pick ourselves up and improve."

    "We have lost with Messi, with Luis Suarez, without Messi, without Luis Suarez," he pointed out. "Squads win titles. Messi must be really ill to miss a match, but it's nothing serious. He's already recovering."


    Pique:

    "It's worrying that we have lost so many points at home. No one wanted a draw in a game which realistically we had to win."

    "We are Barcelona and we cannot make excuses. We have players who are worth a lot of money and a budget which is outrageous compared to Malaga."

    "With numerical superiority it has been easier to get on the attack, but it has not been so because Kameni has been very good, and we have also been denied a goal (for offside)."

    Not the first time he's said it.

    Good self-reflection from Pique with that money quote.

    How can he say that after last season, when they played exactly the same except Kameni screwed up once and Vermaelen scored for 1-0? Or the season before when they played, also, EXACTLY the same, except they scored a goal and won 1-0?

    Yep. How can he not be prepared for a team to park the bus against us? Nearly every team does that. It's bullshit excuses.

    How can you complain that a team sat deep? You are basically telling the world you have no clue how to play such teams and inviting more teams to play the same way. That combined with the fact that every team parks buses against us, make his statements completely stupid and irritating.

    You blame everything on your age i'd be excused for thinking you're 90 years old
