Barcelona head coach Javi Hernandez blamed the lack of calm for his team’s loss to Manchester United yesterday, Thursday, in the second leg of the European Football League’s 32nd round play-off.

The first leg of this match ended in a 2-2 draw, so the decision was made yesterday, Thursday, at Old Trafford, the stronghold of Manchester United, where the Red Devils managed to break the gap with a goal scored without an answer to win by 2 : 1 and thus qualifying for the final price round Catalan team score.

Xavi said during the press conference after the match: “We lacked calmness in the second half and we needed to be more patient and we lost the match due to details.”

He added: “Manchester United’s two goals came from the balls we gave them and overall we had a good match. We competed with a great team, but it’s a pity that we lost.”

He explained: “I thought the first half was under our control and everything was very smooth throughout the match. It’s disappointing, even though our opponents are perhaps the most brilliant team in Europe.”

And he concluded: “Maybe we deserved more after this performance and we had chances to score goals and we didn’t control those little moments so we came out and congratulations to Manchester United.
