It achieved "to steal him" a point the past weekend with his Everton and remained amazed of the very that played his rival, Ronald Koeman defended the footpath of the team "toffe" in front of the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola in the City of Manchester and thus anybody better that he for desgranar the Barça-City before it began. And the Dutch technician left clear that the team of Luis Enrique had it very difficult in front of the "citizens" that already internalise the style of Pep.

"It will be a big show, sure. And already I am impatient for seeing which team will have more possession of the balloon, that does not want to say play better or deserve win. In the football1 there are other important things in addition to having the ball", began saying Ronald for later affirm that the styles of Pep and Struggle "identical no, but are very alike. Obviously it will be a battle for dominating to the another, because they measure two teams that do not know to play of another way. One of the two will have to yield... And it will be very important the balance".

Afterwards they began the praises to Pep: "I think that Guardiola has been before trainer that player. You saw it in the trainings, in the parties... He no only played, also directed, corrected. It carries it in the blood. It is a patient of the football and deserves the success that is having".

The City will be brave... But it is the factor Messi

"No me extrañaría that (the City) had more percentage of possession that the Barça. But the team of Luis Enrique is solid in the defensive appearance. It knows to give three steps backwards and also plays comfortable to the contragolpe. The Barça, anyway, has something that does not have the Manchester City", launched to the air the technician referring to the best of the world, to Leo Messi.

"Your team can be doing a big work, controlling to the rival, but if the genius of Leo Messi desata, there is not at all that do. And usually in the big parties is used to to appear", affirmed to add that "no only is the best current player, also is the best of all time. Besides it has at the side to players like Neymar, Luis Suárez, Iniesta... It is very difficult to defeat to the Barça when all these genii put of agreement in playing well. Even for the Manchester City". 

Although no everything will be way of roses for the Barcelona, as according to Koeman will have to work hard: "If the Barça wants to defeat to the City goes to have to work a lot, because the City moves a lot and well, knows to occupy the spaces and carries you to the limit of your performance and of your concentration. So it will not be him at all easy to the Barça defeat to the Manchester City".
