Barcelona coach Rijkaard: I can sense fans' doubts

The Dutchman said: "I have detected an atmosphere of doubt and we should not be pessimistic.

"The fans must help the team and support us, especially in times when we need them. We all have to believe more in this team and what we can do this season."

Rijkaard was delighted with the way his fringe players stepped in on Saturday.

"Silvinho, Zambrotta, Thuram and Guddy (Gudjohnsen) have left good feelings and have demonstrated that they're players of the first team."
