Spain and Barcelona defender Jordi Alba came out to admit there’s a lot of frustration following their 2-1 slump to Granada.
Alba admitted the Catalan giants wasted a golden chance to go top of La Liga by dropping all maximum points to Granada on Thursday.
“It’s a s— day,” he said. “We tried until the end, but we weren’t clinical. It was a unique opportunity to go top and now we don’t depend on ourselves anymore.
“[Granada] basically got forward twice and scored twice. I think we have to kill games off sooner. This is a big blow, but we must win our remaining five games now and see what happened.
Alba reiterated that Barca “have to finish games sooner. We knew we needed another goal to be calmer. It’s a big blow.”
The left-back said the way to bounce back is “by winning the five games we have left, there’s nothing else for it. We are having a good year, today was a chance to go top after everything we’ve suffered and it’s slipped away from us.”
