Gombau sticks to his methods despite loss to Victory

ADELAIDE United coach Josep Gombau will continue to coach the Barcelona way despite the team being beaten for the fourth time this season - a 3-0 loss on Saturday night to 10-man Melbourne Victory.

The defeat at Etihad Stadium leaves Adelaide in eighth on the ladder.

But Gombau, a former youth team and academy coach at Barcelona, said he would keep trying to teach them the possession-based style he had grown up with and which he been brought in to do with the Reds.

"This is my way," the 37-year-old Spaniard said.

"I don't change nothing.

"I was very honest when the club contacted me and I explained what I want to do.

"This is the way that I believe in football, this is what I learnt in Barcelona and this is what I will do."

Despite watching on as his team's winless streak stretched to six games, Gombau insisted if his side had not made basic errors, it would have won.
