Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba: Foolish if we lose title now

Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba cannot contemplate losing the LaLiga from their current position.

After beating Real Betis 4-1 at the Estadio Benito Villamarin last Sunday, Barcelona established a 10-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid ahead of the final 10 matchdays.

"I think losing this LaLiga Santander would be very foolish with the points advantage we have," Alba told the 'Vamos' show on Movistar Plus.

"But there are still many points [available] and we have to continue."

On his new deal to 2024, Alba continued: "The club wanted me to stay and so did I.

"It is the club of my life and, although late, everything was done in the best possible way.

"We are all very happy."
