Barcelona need more new signings following Neymar departure - Busquets

GFX Possible Liverpool XI v Palace

Barcelona coach, Ernesto Valverde, has reacted to his side's 5-1 aggregate loss to Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup.

The sale seemed to take Barca's Board of Directors nearly totally by surprise, as if they believed the club was too big for one of its star players to ever leave and there is no doubt it has dealt a heavy blow to the collective confidence at the Camp Nou.

"It was an unlucky incident. We lost 3-1 because we committed some errors and they were very good when it came to finishing", Busquets told a news conference on Tuesday. "We didn't lose because of a single piece of play". It's not the best way to express yourself and even less so from within the club, aimed at a player. Marco Asensio impressed with his late cameo, netting what could prove to be a crucial third goal in added time, and the 21-year-old could well be given the nod from the start on Wednesday.

"We are not in the best moment as a team or a club".

"They have made it hard, nearly impossible". "Paulinho has something we miss in our team".

Pearce in front in Fiji
As course designer, Singh was delighted with the reviews of his redesign yet even he saw the glitch at the tough par-three eighth. US Masters winners Angel Cabrera (-3), Vijay Singh (-1) and Mike Weir (-1) comfortably made the cut.

"We're not in our best moment", said the Spanish worldwide.

Cristiano Ronaldo was at the heart of the action at the Camp Nou despite only appearing as a second-half substitute, scoring a sensational goal and being controversially sent off.

The outspoken Spain global has won six La Liga titles and three Champions League trophies among others at Camp Nou, but he made the agonising admission as Barca struggle without Neymar after his world-record move to Paris Saint-Germain.

"It will be hard to turn it around", added Busquets ahead of the second leg at Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. With Neymar's departure there is a lack of attacking players, but as I said before getting better means improving in all positions and all aspects.

Valverde also cast his mind back to the first leg: "During the game we did well but in the end, with that push to attack, we left ourselves open a little and that's where the game was decided".
