Barcelona president Joan Laporta is confident coach Frank Rijkaard can improve the team´s woeful away form which is threatening to hamper their hopes of regaining the Primera Liga title.

Barcelona are only four points behind leaders Real Madrid after 12 rounds of the Primera Liga, but the Catalans have won just once away from home in the league all season.

"We have a technical problem which we need to sort out, but I have every confidence in Frank Rijkaard and his coaching staff," Laporta said. "I am sure they will take the necessary measures to resolve this, and that we can go on to have a successful season."
