Barca have endured a tough week after their collapse at Real Sociedad last weekend.
“The result in the Anoeta puts more pressure on us against Almeria. It’s been a bad week, the same as it always is after a bad result,” said Martino.
Asked by reporters to comment on some of the critical remarks made about him following that slip-up, he insisted: “It’s not for me to judge either the criticism or the praise."
However, Martino is confident about the team’s possibilities: “The league title is still in our hands but we need to win all our matches and if we play well, we’ll have a better chance”. “The team is very self critical, both the players and the coaching staff, and that’s why I have complete confidence in a good reaction."
