Ronald Koeman spoke with the media after the victory of the FC Barcelona in front of the Elche of this past Wednesday. The Dutch referred , between other things, to the change of Miralem Pjanic​ to the rest to give entrance to Ousmane Dmebélé. A variation that seated him very well to the team by the change of system that comported, but that left signalled to the midfield player of Tuzla.

It gives the impression that to the trainer barcelonista does not like him the bosnio, since it is having he much less of the expected and when it plays always is used to to be substituted. In spite of this, the technician justified his decision in press conference and left clear that does not have at all personal against the ex bianconero. His replacement was for the sake of the Barça, since it thought that it was necessary to play with a half less to improve.

"Miralem Has to improve the rhythm of balloon, know his position... But always, if you change a player, seems that he is the culprit. It is not like this. The other neither have put more rhythm of party, but have preferred that Read played of ten and open to Ousmane. And therefore we have removed to Pjanic", said the Dutch to explain the reason by which commanded to the Balkan to the bench in the rest.

Besides, also it referred to the first time of his in general, that left a lot that wish. Nevertheless, for the míster was not lacking of attitude, but of dynamism and game. "There was lacking of rhythm in the game, this does not depend on the attitude. We wanted to do a good party from the beginning, but sometimes the things do not go out you well. We are not machines, are human. But the team has showed his personality and his win in the first part", defended.

After a first very toneless time, Koeman changed things to the rest and put him the batteries to his players, the same that tried to do Leo Messi with his gestures in the first-half. All the world has seen that it was missing us intensity and rhythm of balloon, and is well that Messi like captain ask more intensity. It was dissatisfaction by the rhythm of the party, by our game with balloon, that has been slow. And afterwards the defence went very to backwards. We have improved in the second part. We did three goals and could do more", stood out.

Koeman Defended and elogió to Leo Messi

Finally, it defended to Messi and left clear that when it referred to that the veterans had to give the face did not refer to him. "If I speak of the greater, is not by Leo because the effectiveness that has is impressive. They are more players those that have to mark the differences and he has showed again that it is important for this team", concluded, praising to the '10' after his doublet in front of the ilicitanos.
