Calendar of FC Barcelona

The trainer of the FC Barcelona has appeared again in front of the media of face to the next party of the Barcelona in front of the Granada. However, the continuity of the Dutch, seriously questioned after the fall in Champions in front of the Bayern, has been one of the subjects tackled.

After being interrogated on the time that would need his project to obtain the results wished, has answered "there are things exaggerated. There are changes in the team, lesionados and a lot of youngsters. The people that knows surely says that it is a change, but what explains is to win parties".

"Surely there are people in favour and against of Ronald Koeman"

For the trainer, is essential to keep a positive attitude with regard to a party: "it can not be that it have to answer before the Bayern on if I go to renew a year more and now the next questions will be on if have fear on my future. It is necessary to put energy to win the party".

In such sense, has manifested to feel unsuspecting, in spite of that it is precise to improve: "we Trust to win parties, fault a lot. I expect to recover to people to have more available players. Already I know that they explain the resulted. I do not have any fear on my future. At the end it decides the club and the president".

Dirty campaign against Koeman?

Koeman Has not denied that there is detractores and considers it like something normal: "All the world has right to think. Surely there are people in favour and against of Ronald Koeman. I do not speak. There are people that wants that it follow and there are people that thinks that they have to look for to somebody. This can not change never".

In his opinion, already Laporta expressed the necessary after the defeat and even compared the occurred with the defeat in front of the Bayern when Setién was to charge of the bench: "Our president went out the other day and does not do lacking to repeat. I am more realistic that turncoat. It does a year the Barça lost with the Bayern 2-8 and played with Messi, Griezmann, Suárez and the other day finish the party with Mingueza, Araujo, Balde, Pedri, Gavi, Demir and expect all to Ansu Fati".

Neither arrepiente to having abandoned to the Dutch selection to direct to the Barça: "All want the best for the club. Knowing all the subject, was interested in being the trainer. Had the feeling that it was a moment complicated, with the economic subject and of the team. I struggle and want to win, want to be".

Even it sustains that his directed keep the same posture after the defeat: "The players also are realistic, especially the greater that had successes. We do not accept and we want to improve, but we are realistic and change things do not do in two days. They think the same that I".

Optimist of face to the Barça-Granada

Koeman Also has signalled several of the keys to add the three points in the next party: "The Barça is able to win each party, but it is necessary to defend well. It is necessary to have an attacker game, with movements, and have effectiveness in our game. If we remember the parties, were upper home against Granada and Cádiz home, but empatamos with the Granada and lost against the Cádiz".

However, it does not become attached to an only diagram of game: "there is different systems to be able to win. Our basic system is the 4-3-3, but if have two forwards and many central as you have to adapt you. If we had played more open, the defeat had been bigger".

The role of the youngsters and the status of the infirmary

It added that it does not shiver him the pulse to the moment to range to the promises of the club, but has to dosificarse: "I do not have neither a fear to put to a youngster of start, but put six immediately neither is good. If they participate and have his parties. It is dificilísimo know when go to have more parties. If it is a player like Pedri can not it stop to be headline. It depends on a lot of things".

Of them, it has done emphasis in Alejandro Balde: "it Went in the other day very well, with quality and energy. Dest Also has played by the left and Mingueza also did it with the filial, but the most normal is that I prefer a left-handed side. It is necessary to know that we are speaking of a very young player, but do not have fear in beginning the party with Balde".

Meanwhile, it keeps that Riqui Puig needs to evolve still: "it Has to improve in many respects of game. The other day it heated and it was a possibility to go in to the party, but had to do the change of the injury of Jordi Alba. It has to work like any youngster".

It has not shelved his praises for Ansu Fati: "In spite of his youth, Ansu has taught his quality like player and marked quite a lot of goals. We do not put date, but is working with the team. It can be in a week or in ten days. We know that in attack is missing us and if Ansu can have minutes is important. We are speaking of a big player".

Likewise, it referred to the case of Agüero, still in recovery, and the advances of Coutinho: "The 'Kun' is working with the field in the fisio and still is missing him. Coutinho Went in well the other day and will decide if it can go out of start. It does not go to be for 90 minutes. We have to look for the best for the team and for Philippe".
