Messi: We were weak and today’s game is a summary of the season.”

Barcelona captain Lionel Messi insists they didn’t want to end the season this way after Real Madrid won the La Liga title after victory over Villarreal.

Real Madrid secured their 34th La Liga title following a 2-1 win over Villarreal thanks to Karim Benzema’s brace. Elsewhere, Barcelona suffered a 2-1 loss at the hands of Osasuna and Messi says they didn’t plan to end the season like this but it represents how the season it has gone.

“We didn’t want to end the season like this but it represents how the season has gone,” Messi said following Barca’s loss.

“We were a very erratic, very weak, low-intensity team… We lost a lot of points and today’s game is a summary of the season.”

“We have to be self-critical. Starting with the players but doing a global self-criticism. We are Barca and we have to win everything. We can’t look at Madrid. Madrid have done their job, but we have helped them a lot.”

he Argentine feels Barca will have to drastically improve if they are to have any chance of winning the Champions League this season.

“If we want to win the Champions League, we have to change a lot. If we continue like this, we will lose the game against Napoli. The sensations are that the team tries but cannot, we leave much to be desired in many games.”

“Everything we have experienced since January has been very bad. We have to change a lot of things for real. The fans are running out of patience because we’re not giving them anything. It’s normal.”
