Barcelona coach Valverde: I've not thought of resigning

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde says he won't consider resigning after a dismal 3-1 defeat to Levante.

Despite taking a first-half lead through a Lionel Messi penalty, Los Cules struggled to create many chances of any real danger.

"Of course I'm not thinking about resigning, it's just a defeat," Valverde confirmed in his post-match press conference.

"The players have responded and we have to continue [working].

"We have lost a match and that's it; we always react and this time won't be any different."

The Blaugrana folded like an old pack of cards, but Valverde maintains that the attitude of his players was good.

"It's true that they have scored three goals, but our attitude was always good," he intimated.

"The opponent played their game; sometimes this happens and we just have to accept it.

"We have nothing to say and we move onto the next thing, as we do in football."
