The victory and post celebration of the championship on 2012, which let the win its 14th Star, seemed to keep distracting Barcelona Sporting Club, whose players hold one of the worst performances in recent years. According to a chronicle of El Universo newspaper, two former coaches and an ex player analyze the poor performance in this season of the current national champion.
Eduardo Granda and Ricardo Armendáriz, former coaches, and Fricson George, former player of Barcelona agree that the main cause of the crisis of this team is that players would still not recovered from the excitement of having won the championship, maybe still thinking the title of 2012 and do not accept that stay in the past.
They also criticized the Barcelona’s coach, Gustavo Costas has failed on replace goalscorer Narciso Mina, who was transferred to Mexico, and possible substitutes, Ariel Nahuelpan or Gonzalo Castillejos, who did not perform as expected. Another cause would be a bad preseason, short and without enough preparatory matches. The preparation and reinforcements are the responsibility of the coach, said the analysts.
Critics believe that talking indoors about problems to solve them and impose discipline and rigor with psychological work could take the “idol” of the crisis and restore joy to his thousands of followers.
