Ronald Koeman appeared in press conference this Saturday and no only spoke of the previous of the meeting in front of the Real Betis. The trainer barcelonista referred to other subjects of actuality in the barcelonismo, some something controversial, as for example the arbitration. Gerard Hammered stood out recently that the referees favoured to the Real Madrid and prejudiced to the FC Barcelona, and the Dutch 'wetted on this and gave his point of view.

"I can not speak of previous years. Only I can think of the parties until the day of today and yes there have been decisions in that we have not had a lot of fortune but do not want to say that we have them against. I think that pitan what see and besides there is a VAR. In Granada is not sufficient for me to be penalti but are decisions and have the VAR. Always I think that the referee is honoured and do not think if it goes in favour or no of a team", affirmed, leaving clear that is not happy with some arbitrations, but that does not think that was premeditado.

On the other hand, also it spoke of the future of Leo Messi, although it admitted that everything will depend of the Argentinian. "Only there is a person that can speak of this and is he the one who can decide on his future. It would like me that it remained a lot of years more. Attempt that have good feelings here as it is having. Leo gives a lot of quality to the team and need it. It is with a lot of morals and energy to help to the team and the future is in his hands", confirmed.

Besides, it pronounced on the controversial decision to leave in the bench to Net against the Granada. The one of Zaandam left to fall that it was by a subject of attitude, perhaps by the fact that the Brazilian asked to go of the Barça days before the crash. "I already said that I am not of which leave to play to the second goalkeeper in the Glass. In each party speak with Dela (preparador of goalkeepers) and have not decided neither on the party of the Wednesday. I think in doing the best team to win, but am not so strict to say that if it is Glass plays the second goalkeeper. It depends on a lot of forms, of the attitude", declared.

Also it spoke of Antoine Griezmann, that split to party goes to more and that against the Granada was one of the big stars of the meeting. "I remember the call that did him when I signed by the Barça. I said him that had a lot of confidence in him. I know that it did not have the effectiveness to the start as now lately. Never I had my doubts on him and has self-criticism. It is important to have it like player. Always it has worked to recover and give the best of himself same. No it can him ask more", praised.

Koeman Spoke of the conflict Lenglet/Umtiti

Finally, it treated another subject that could cause controversy of face to the most immediate future of the Barcelona, that is not another that the fight between Samuel Umtiti and Clément Lenglet by a place in the eleven. "Lenglet Is important for us. It has played a lot of parties. Have competition because Umtiti has been well after his injury and is better for all have the available head offices. It is not that one was better that another. Sometimes one does well the work and in the following party has to expect", finalised, without 'wet'.
