The FC Barcelona fell with bang against the Athletic of Madrid in the semifinals of the Supercopa of Spain. The culés, in spite of beginning losing, replaced and traced back to put 2-1. When they had it everything in favour, nevertheless, threw the advantage to lose and the rojiblancos gave him the turn to the marker to classify for the final. After the fiasco, many are loading against Ernesto Valverde and hold him responsible like the big culprit of the defeat.
Rivaldo, ex footballer of the Barça, has not doubted in questioning the work of the technician extremeño in his last statements. "Sure that this defeat does not benefit for nothing to Valverde. It remembered me to the previous fiascos in the Champions. After falling in Saudi Arabia, the club could put seriously risk his continuity. I now see it like a near possibility or even for the end of season, because a club like the Barcelona can not follow losing split like this, of a way so negligente", affirmed.
The ex player of the Brazilian selection also took advantage of to compare the attitude and the method of work of the 'Txingurri' with the one of the Cholo Simeone. For the ex mediapunta, to the of Viandar of the Edge is missing him character in decisive moments.

The Brazilian insisted that it is against of his use, although it left clear that gave justice and that can not have possible complaint. "Always I have said that am against of the VAR, but if it exists, have to apply the law and, in this party, the VAR did a good work. So much in the goal cancelled to Messi as in the cancelled to Hammered. Even so, I insist: it would delete the VAR because it suppresses many of the emotions that gives us the football", explained.
It praised the work of Zidane in the Madrid
Finally, Rivaldo wanted to speak also of the Real Madrid and of Zinedine Zidane. The one of Recife thinks that the French already has showed sobradamente that is a very competent technician in all the senses.
