Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has apologized to their supporters following their 4-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup final.

Vinícius Jr scored a first-half hat-trick at Al-Awwal Park, while Rodrygo completed the rout in the second half, as Madrid inflicted revenge on Barça for last year’s defeat in the final.

Robert Lewandowski had pulled one back to make it 2-1, but Vinícius’ penalty killed off any hopes of a Clásico comeback before the break.

“It’s a moment to say sorry to the supporters and accept the criticism that comes,” Xavi said.

“We did not show the side of the team we should have in a final, especially against Madrid.

“We were at our worst today in the worst scenario possible and it’s a trophy lost. I am responsible. I accept the criticism and we will keep working hard.”
