Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has declared that he has total faith in his current squad.
The defending Spanish champions are still reeling from the shock loss to Hercules on the weekend.
However Guardiola says: “If you think that I doubt this team, I will make it clear. I’ll never hesitate to back these players. They can have the worst season in history, but it is impossible to doubt them.
“I can get angry, which was not the case (on Sunday), but I never doubt them: to suggest I told them we could not live on our six titles was tacky – these players already know this.”
