Barcelona have slipped far off in the race for the La Liga title this season.

The Blaugrana already find themselves 9 points behind leaders Girona, and Barca’s form has been quite poor this season.

The club legend has the support of club president Joan Laporta. However, Laporta has warned that losing has its consequences.

“Losing always has consequences. If we don’t win trophies this season, decisions will have to be made, the ones the club needs most based on what has been done,” Joan Laporta told the media.

“The thing is that we are alive in all competitions. We aspire to win all of them, all of the ones we participate in.

“Now we have the Supercopa [January 11] and we will start the Copa del Rey campaign against Barbastro [January 7]. We still compete for La Liga. We have distanced ourselves from the leaders, but we are third and the important thing is always how it ends.

“At the moment, we have hit a slump and our direct rivals are holding up the pace, but I think they will also have a slump and we will progress for the better, because we have already recovered some players who were injured and are fundamental for this team.

“I have intact expectations, which were to try to win all the competitions in which we participate. I remain optimistic about the team.”
