Barcelona coach Valverde worried about feud between Spanish FA and LaLiga

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde admits he's concerned the feud between the Spanish FA and LaLiga will be damaging.

No agreement has been reached between the two governing bodies on the new date of El Clasico between the Blaugrana and Real Madrid, which was postponed due to the unrest in the Catalan capital, although it was initially scheduled for October 26.

"I would like common sense to prevail," Valverde told reporters at a press conference on Tuesday evening.

"Espanyol's game against Villarreal was played and that of the following week was suspended.

"We must trust that Catalan society is fine and it would be a demonstration of maturity on everyone's part.

"I wouldn't like the internal wars between the federation and LaLiga to affect us.

"I would have liked to play [El Clasico] and give everything a normal feel."
