The strategist of the Barcelona, Ronald Koeman, do not doubt in admitting that the defeat of the Barcelona in front of the PSG 1-4 like venues gives him very few options to the club to be able to classify to the following phase of the UEFA Champions League.

"It is necessary to play, can you mentir, but losing home 1-4 is very complicated. There is very few options", admitted the mister Dutch during the press conference when finalising the party against the French club. Besides, it admitted that the Parisians were upper in the field, although it rescued that the first-half of the party both teams were equalised.

"They have been upper, have had a lot of effectiveness, especially by part of Mbappé. The first part was very very equalised. With the 1-0 Ousmane had a clear. In the second, defensive problems. They have showed, especially in the second part, be upper. With balloon and especially in the physical", said.

And it added: "It Is necessary to recognise that they have been upper. They have showed, especially in the second part, that have a more complete team that we. It is necessary to accept it and follow improving. We know that this can happen. This team is by in front of us".

On the return of Hammered

In front of the question on the return of Hammered, Koeman defended the decision of the return of Hammered for the party. "Never it knows exactly when it is the timely moment after three months. It could be today or Sunday. We have taken the decision between Gerard, the doctor and I. It did not be to risk play 90 minutes".

About if said defeat is a hit for the spirits of the team after the good dynamics that carried in the Camp Nou, Koeman has commented that "I do not think that was a stick anímico. We are in a way to change things. They are missing us things to be in the best level".

Koeman And his self-criticism

However, the Dutch admitted that the big reverse suffered this Tuesday was firstly his responsibility. "The result always is responsibility of the trainer. We have tried to dominate, brake to the ones of up. It is a reflection of the moment of the team. They have showed to be more complete. They are a team fichado and we a team in transition. It is necessary to try improve things. It is my responsibility", admitted.

You win to continue

Koeman Rescued the defeat standing out the young players inside the staff of the club. "Always it is necessary to aspire to everything, but also is necessary to recognise that they are missing us things (…) already have said it several times, are in the good way and go to struggle and follow changing things. Today we play with Dest, 19 years. With 4 years more is better. Pedri, to his age already is very good, but with five years more, is better that any one of the half of the field of the PSG. It is complicated, more with the subject of the press. I am realistic. Always I defend to my team. We have done of everything. We can defend better, be more aggressive. We go it to change and go to work. It is a moment in which they are missing us things, but never have thought that they did not be missing us. Still it is not the end. It seems that I am more realistic that the other", argued.

During his appearance in front of the press, the also ex footballer admitted that has all the will to follow working by the Barcelona. "Less bad that I am a quite honoured person and rectum. I accept a defeat and go to work. As that do not have win to follow! I accept a defeat. Are where I am what have to change. We are trying it. We are not at the end of the way, but to the half".
