Dani Alves: Barcelona will continue to defend title
Speaking in the wake of their dramatic Copa Del Rey final loss to bitter rivals Real Madrid, Barcelona defender Dani Alves has lambasted those who continue to critique the catalan side, proclaiming that "when we win, we're good. When we lose, we're crap."
According to reports on Lancenet, Alves continued: "Many do not understand our profession. This team never crosses its arms. We have to defend our title till the end. We apologise to those who came to see us."
Barca have endured a difficult time since the turn of the year, dropping points in La Liga with unusual consistency, as well as getting knocked out of the Champions League prior to the semi final stage for the first time since 2007.
Wednesday's defeat to Real in the Spanish cup also marks the first time Barcelona have lost three consecutive matches since 2003.
