"If no marks and give a big gift to the Alavés with the 1-0 is very complicated". Of this form tried resumir Ronald Koeman the tie of the FC Barcelona against the Alavés. The trainer barcelonista spoke in press conference on the prick of his and left clear that is not happy. Nevertheless, the Dutch yes recognised that futbolísticamente speaking his team has not been so bad as it says the classification of LaLiga.

It concerns me that only we have two points in the last four days. Can criticise the performance by not having so many points, but think that the game has been very acceptable", commented the one of Zaandam. For him the most worrisome is the little tarpaulin of face to the rival goal. "It would be more concerned if we did not create opportunities, but face to the goal it is necessary to have more performance. It is a subject of the group and work to improve. It can not be, we fail too much", it affirmed.

On the other hand, it launched a dart to the critics that 'rajaron' of him for taking too much in reacting against the Real Madrid in the Classical. In this crash did not do replacements until the 82, something that has taken into account with the three changes that has done in the rest in front of the Alavés. "If you criticise me the other day for changing late, today have changed in and rest. It was not happy by the first part and there were people in the bench that could open the marker also and have quality to show", signalled.

In this sense, the ex seleccionador of Holland recognised that it was not him liking his team and explained why did the retouchings that did. "It was necessary to change things to win the party. The decision in the rest was to put to Frenkie like defence, because it is more offensive, and put to Trincao by band and to Pjanic in the half, since Busquets and Lenglet had yellow", confirmed.

Koeman Wanted to do a summary of what went for him the meeting in bold strokes and went back to insist in the fault of puntería of his. "The first part has been complicated. They have closed well the spaces and the rhythm of balloon had to be higher. It was a first toneless part, but had three or four very clear occasions to mark. In the second part were better, creating a lot of occasions, but have not been hit, as yes we were it against the Juve", declared.

Koeman Did not speak on the penalti to Of Jong

Finally, the trainer of the Barça did not want to 'wet' with the arbitration. The culés demanded a penalti by push of Ximo Navarro on Of Jong in the first time, but neither the VAR neither the referee saw at all. "Already I have spoken of the subject of the arbitration and prefer not thinking. The other day I said as it felt me, I do not want to argue again this subject", finalised, referring to his criticisms to the VAR and to the arbitration after the Classical.
