"Hopefully the next referee won't get it wrong" - Valverde



The Barça coach revealed that Iniesta had picked up an injury and also stressed: "we always want to win. These things happen over long campaigns".

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde spoke to beIN sports directly after seeing his side held to a 2-2 draw with Celta at the Camp Nou, a result which blows the title race wide open. 

Impressions of the match: "It was a hard-fought game, and they started well. We struggled to get into the match and then conceded and had to play to gain control. We were able to come back and then Celta got a lucky break with their second, as well as the injury to Umtiti. We could have scored but in the end it wasn't to be".

Umtiti's injury: "It was the culmination of bad luck. Umtiti's injury was a key point in the game. A lot of things have happened this year in that respect, but you just have to get on with it".

Doubt creeping in: "We are Barça and we always want win. Sometimes that's not possible and the same happened against Valencia. These things happen over a long season".

Iniesta: “He asked to come off. Hopefully it's nothing serious”.

Refereeing decisions:  "You always want any controversy to go your way, but we hope that the referee doesn't get the next call wrong. I'm relaxed about; it's happened before".
