Joan Laporta has asked for the Barcelona supporters to ‘stand by the team’. The Catalan giants have made their worst start to a LaLiga season since 1987-88. The team have won just four of their opening 10 games under Ronald Koeman. Laporta said that the club understands ‘what needs to be done to ‘solve’ the issues’. However, he has asked for ‘calm’ from the Barcelona fanbase in the meantime
The Barcelona president shared his plea on Twitter, saying: ‘I ask you to keep supporting our team. The team needs you and is thankful to you.’
‘You know we are living difficult moments and these are the moments you need to stand by us.
‘This week a Barca delegation is going to ‘Palos de la Frontera’ to an act of ‘Penyes’, which coincides with the match in Cadiz.
‘In Cadiz, you can be sure that the team will try to win. I do not know what will happen, but no matter what, in the next match against Levante, this week keep supporting our team. ‘The team needs it. Thank you very much.’
Laporta’s comments came after the Catalan giants drew 1-1 with Granada in their home game.
