Barcelona have vowed to fight the "defeatism" that is threatening to destabilise the club in the run up to their Champions League semi-final against Manchester United later this month.

The Catalan outfit were furious with suggestions made by financial director Xavier Sala Martin, who claimed in an interview with Catalunya Radio on Wednesday morning that Barcelona are using injuries as an excuse to mask player indiscipline.

"No players have been excluded, that simply has not happened," said coach Frank Rijkaard following Barcelona´s Champions League quarter-final win at home to Schalke on Wednesday night.
