Frenkie de Jong was the only player to apologise to Barcelona's fans after Granada defeat

Granada CF v FC Barcelona  - La Liga

Barcelona's nightmare start to the 2019/20 season continued on Saturday evening as they lost 2-0 away to Granada in La Liga.

Luis Suarez and €120m signing Antoine Griezmann both started for the Blaugana, yet they only managed one shot on target throughout the entire game.

Not even Lionel Messi, who was expected to start after returning from injury but came on at half-time, could save his side from a second defeat of the season.

Speaking after the defeat, manager Ernesto Valverde admitted that he's "worried" by Barcelona's away form.

"I'm worried because away from home we aren't getting good results," said the under-pressure boss. "When four away games have gone by, it's a symptom that something isn't too good.

"There are players who arrived late, but we haven't been good, we're not playing well away. We dominated, but we don't turn that into goalscoring chances.

"We haven't had a chance of turning the game around. We're missing precision in the final third, they tried to press us.

"We came out well from the pressure and then it was a matter of adding the finishing touch, that's where we went wrong. We will try to improve."

Barcelona could end up being six points behind first place by the end of the weekend depending on how Sevilla get on against Real Madrid, which would give them a mountain to climb.

If anyone is capable of closing such a wide gap so early on it's Barcelona, of course, but Valverde and his players need answers quick.

Valverde's tactics are questionable, but the players also need to take a look at themselves in the mirror and improve their attitudes.

According to Goal's Barcelona correspondant, Ignasi Oliva Gispert, Frenkie de Jong was the only player to go and apologise to Barca's fans after the game and the first to give an interview.

Imagine one of your youngest and most inexperienced players being the only one to take responsibility after such a poor performance.

Gerard Pique, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Antoine Griezmann, Ivan Rakitic and Marc-Andre ter Stegen should all take note.

Here's what De Jong said in his interview: "This (central midfield) is a simple position on the pitch and in the next matches I will do better.

"I have to adapt and I have talked with Valverde about football issues and we have watched videos.The coach should not ask me where I prefer to play, as he is the coach and he decides.

"At Ajax and with the [Netherlands] national team I played in central midfield, but it is different because we played with a double pivot.

"Against Real Betis and Osasuna I played wider and if I didn't play well then it was my fault. People began to debate about my position, asking if I had to play here or there, and it seemed crazy."
