La Liga: Barcelona Manager, Valverde Speaks on Real Madrid’s Poor Start To Season

Barcelona manager, Ernesto Valverde, has said he is not getting carried away after they opened up a seven-point lead over Real Madrid in midweek.

A day after Barca extended their winning start to the season to five games with a 6-1 win against Eibar, Madrid were beaten 1-0 at home by Real Betis.

“Things can change, what do you want me to say?” Valverde said in a news conference on Friday.

“Madrid in crisis? They’re seven points behind, yes, but Sevilla [are] two [behind], Atletico four…

“I don’t know how clubs deal with each ‘crisis’ a month ago the same was said about us. There’s always a lot of noise but what I care about is my team.”

Pressed on if he was surprised that Madrid had already dropped points at the Santiago Bernabeu against Valencia, Levante and Betis, Valverde continued: “It ‘s tough for me to respond to questions about Madrid

“I didn’t expect [their bad start] but I didn’ t not expect it […] I come from the other side of the wall: Either you’re Barca or you’re Madrid

“I have an eye on all of our rivals … [Madrid] have lost games, but we will lose games as well. Some teams will be in crisis, others will come out of it. Then there will be autumn, winter, spring.”
