Valverde has ‘little worries’ after Real Sociedad comeback

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has said he is not worried after his side came from behind to beat Real Sociedad 2-1 on Saturday.

It is no secret that the Catalan side struggle when visiting the Anoeta and it looked likely that they would suffer their first defeat of the season when La Real took a first half lead on Saturday afternoon.

A second half comeback from Barca saw Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele secure three points for the champions and further enhanced their impressive start, which is now four games and four wins.

Valverde, tinkered with his side, bringing in Rafinha for his first league start and Sergio Busquets on the bench after he played twice for Spain during the international period.

Having guided his side to a comeback, Valverde was met with questions from reporters following the game, who asked if he was worried by his side’s lacklustre first half display.

The former Athletic Bilbao boss said: “I am not too worried going home, but we will try to correct our mistakes.”

The performance of Marc Andre ter-Stegen was a particular highlight for Barca as the German stopper kept La Real from making it 2-0 during a stage in the second half.

Plaudits from his boss have since followed for good reason after he made three one-on-one saves to deny the Basque side.

And, Valverde has heaped praise on his shoulders, saying: “Ter Stegen made some very good saves and, like everyone else, did his job very well.”
