But has Rafa brought this on himself?
‘Now we have to talk about the game, it is better than to be talking about the speculation, I understand really well, but the speculation is something we cannot control. So we have to talk about the games, the football and what happened today on the pitch.’
‘Don’t carry on, don’t carry on. Finish.’
‘These things can happen in football. It is a pity because we were more or less in control. It changed the game and it changed the result at the end. It is not the best, that is clear. We were expecting to be higher in the table, we have had too many problems.’
‘I have shown my commitment with the fans and the club in the past and this year. We still have one game to play so we will try and be ready for this game. I have four years on my contract and we have to carry on.’
