Sylvinho: Barcelona players accept Laporta claims

Barcelona fullback Sylvinho insists the players are not upset with president Joan Laporta's comments last week that they're responsible for losing the title last season.

"More than just the president, we are all distraught about last season," said the former Arsenal fullback. "Things didn't happen the way we wanted. And if that has happened, it also happened for the coaches, the fans and the directors. But now I prefer to look forward.

"We have many titles to play for this season and I prefer to focus on that. Last season hurt and angered us, but now it's time to close that chapter."
