An unhappy Lionel Messi has slammed his teammates after Barcelona suffered a 3-2 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup semifinal on Thursday.
Barcelona surrendered a 2-1 lead in the 81st minute to gift Atletico Madrid a 3-2 win.
Messi and Antoine Griezmann had cancelled out Koke's opener, before Alvaro Morata and Angel Correa sealed victory for Diego Simeone's side.
"We need to try and continue playing as well as we did today for the rest of the year, but make sure we don't make the childish errors," Messi told reporters after the defeat, according to Reuters.
"We controlled the game for around 80 minutes, we played at a high pace, we attacked all the time and created lots of chances. But in the last 10 minutes, we made big and we let a game slip which we had under control."
The defeat continues what has been a poor start to 2020 for Ernesto Valverde's side, having drawn 2-2 with local rivals Espanyol in La Liga on Saturday.
