Pig is saddened by last night's defeat, but believes that Barça should not be stopped by this defeat.
midfielder Riqui Puig has claimed that Barça needs to get back on track after losing to Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup final.
Ronald Koeman's team went to Bilbao in the Super Cup final yesterday and, after a 2-2 draw in 90 minutes, scored the third goal in extra time and lost the cup. Puig claimed that he and his teammates were upset about the defeat but should continue on their path.
He wrote on his Instagram account:
“Hard to lose the Supercopa final when we were so close,”
“It’s time to get up and continue fighting for all that remains this season, that’s why we’re Barcelona!”
Puig only accompanied his team for a few minutes in extra time. Barça initially took the lead with a goal from Griezmann, but Bilbao equalized. So again Griezmann managed to score again and this time Bilbao equalized in the final minutes of the game. In extra time, Inaki Williams scored the winning goal and the trophy went to San Mamés.
