La Liga: Why Barcelona Surrender Title To Osasuna- Messi

Barcelona captain Lionel Messi says the club surrender to Osasuna because “things have to change” at the club as they lost their La Liga title on the night their 30-game unbeaten home run in the league came to an end.
Even a win would not have been enough for Barca, as Real Madrid beat Villarreal 2-1 to win the title.
BBC reports that Jose Arnaiz put Osasuna ahead before Messi levelled with a free-kick.
The visitors had Enric Gallego sent off for elbowing Clement Lenglet before Roberto Torres’ close-range winner.
Messi, who is La Liga’s top scorer on 23 goals with one game to go, said: “We didn’t expect to finish in this way, but it sums up the year for us.

He blamed the defeat on the inconsistency of the club, which he described as weak, and that lead to their loss of points.
The Barcelona captain further said going forward, the club needs to be critical beginning from the players
“We are a weak team that can be beaten with enough intensity and enthusiasm.
“We have lost a lot of points which we shouldn’t have done. We have been very inconsistent.
“We need to be self-critical, starting with the players, but also across the entire club. We are Barcelona, and we are obliged to win every game.”
Barca’s only hope of a major trophy now is the Champions League. They host Napoli in the last 16-second leg on Saturday, 8 August, having drawn 1-1 in Italy.
Analysts believed that the club can redeem itself on the champions league.
Meanwhile, Barcelona on their social media pages at least, was magnanimous in defeat as they congratulated Real Madrid on winning their 34th La Liga title on Thursday night.
Reports have it that Zidane refused to let his mind drift to the possible celebrations and didn’t want to entertain the importance of the game in the grander scheme of things before kick-off on Thursday night
