Andres Iniesta calls for perspective

Andres Iniesta says confidence remains high at Barcelona despite two defeats in a week, and that everyone at the Camp Nou is working together to get things back on track.

Tomas: In Martino we trust
Ledwith: Time to worry?
Marcotti: Barca's bad week

Even though Barca remain top of the Primera Division standings, alarm bells are ringing in Catalonia, particularly after Sunday’s limp 1-0 loss at Athletic Bilbao, with coach Gerardo Martino coming in for fierce criticism amid a feeling Barca’s players either do not understand or do not want to follow his tactical instructions.

The Catalan midfielder, who was named La Liga’s best attacking midfielder in the 2012-13 season on Monday, said that some perspective was required as the current situation was not really so bad.

“There is not one iota less confidence than two weeks ago,” Iniesta told Marca. “I am a person who does not like extremes -- in both good times and bad I like to see things with perspective and balance. Sometimes things do not go as you want, through nobody’s fault, but because circumstances do not allow it.”

Iniesta said that there was clearly room for improvement but the players and coaching staff would pull together to ensure that happened.

“In a team game there are questions for everyone, and things which can be improved,” he said. “If this team is characterised for anything it is for its solidarity, its character, and nobody likes when things are going badly.

“There is concern when you lose but we are trying to correct things. Nobody likes to lose, to do things badly or less well, but we must have confidence in what we are doing to improve.”
