The Spanish has refused to blame the Catalan goalkeeper after the defeat and says whole squad must take the responsibility for the loss against Celta Vigo.
The 46 year old has sought to take the responsibility for the Catalan’s 4-3 loss against Celt Vigo, on Sunday in La Liga, following a poor display by their goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
The La Liga champions suffered their second defeat in this campaign, and the German goalkeeper made many individual’s mistake, that had a major influence on that match.
Bu the former Celta Vigo coach try to endeavor to shift the blame from the German goalkeeper, now they are sitting fourth in the table, two points behind from the leaders going into international break.
"The defeat is for everyone," he told Barca TV. "First for me, myself, I am the one responsible for the team. Now we have to pick ourselves up.
"It was an important day for us as we had the chance to go top and we did not take advantage of it.
"We started the game well and in the first 15 minutes I was pleased, but from then on we entered a negative dynamic and began to lose individual duels in which they got the better of us.
"The players are not machines, we must pick ourselves up and compete in the next game."
The spanish coach has also defended his decision to benched Andres Iniesta, and took his name among substitute at Estadio de Balaidos.
"Do not [ask] the easy question now," he was quoted as saying by Canal+.
"I have to decide before the game, not after. I do not regret anything. I accept it as part of my job."
He added: "Another easy question. Barcelona's goalkeepers always have to [take] risks. Today all the team has lost. There is much to improve."
Barcelona will face Deportivo La Coruna on October 15 at home.
