Barcelona president Sandro Rosell: Refereeing decisions are going against us this season

1 Feb 2012 18:09:00La Liga
The 47-year-old believes that Pep Guardiola's men have not had their fair share of luck during the current campaign and is hoping that things soon even themselves outBarcelona president Sandro Rosell believes that the club have been unfairly treated by referees so far this season.

There has been much debate in recent days about some crucial decisions that have gone against the Catalans over the past few weeks and Rosell is of the opinion that they have not had their fair share of luck.

"The referees sometimes favour you and other times hurt you, but usually everything is balanced out by the end of the season," he is quoted as saying by Mundo Deportivo.

"But, for now, things do not look good for the club."

However, despite the fact that Barcelona are currently struggling and are now a daunting seven points behind Primera Division leaders Real Madrid, Rosell remains upbeat about their chances of holding on to their title.

"I'm sure the team will not throw in the towel," he argued. "The season is already very good. We have won three of the six possible titles. And we can still win the three remaining.

"This team deserves a lot of credit. No one can doubt this team."

Rosell was then asked whether he would rather win La Liga or see coach Pep Guardiola sign a new contract with the club and he responded: "I choose both!"

Barcelona, who have already claimed the Spanish Super Cup, the Uefa Super Cup and the Club World Cup this season, return to Liga action against Real Sociedad this weekend.
