Nevertheless, the Dutch did not remain so happy with the quantity of opportunities that wasted the culés. "Had a lot of occasions for distanciarnos of two goals, but this has not given and the game in the second part has not been so brilliant, with a lot of possession of balloon but less danger", affirmed.

The Huesca, spurred by the so short result and by the occasions that failed the Barça, tightened something at the end and had a pair of dangerous approaches. The technician blaugrana recognised that it did not like him that his team suffered at the end. "We have suffered, because if you do not sentence before always you suffer a bit. There have been centres to the area that have defended well, but whenever there is this type of played suffers ", commented.

The one of Zaandam insisted in the importance to hit more than face to door and in the last pass, although it showed satisfied by the so much of Frenkie of Jong. "We can improve in our last pass, in taking good positions. But I am happy with the goal of Frenkie because our players have to go in in the area. We expect to have more tarpaulin to have a party something easier", signalled.

Besides, it admitted that it will be key that the Barcelona follow giving this performance far of the Camp Nou in the weeks to come and stood out the importance of this month of January, with several parties of League and the Supercopa of Spain.

If somebody takes a bad series and we win, will be in the fight", aimed.

On the other hand, it did not want to give him importance to the suplencia of Antoine Griezmann and explained the reason by which preferred to Ousmane Dembélé or to Martin Braithwaite. "I trust each player of the staff, but if we opt by three midfield players have three forwards. With Leo in band, opt by a player of depth like Dembélé and have to choose between Antoine and Martin. Martin Is doing it very well, but this does not mean that we do not trust Griezmann, there is split for all", informed.

Dembélé, key for Ronald Koeman

Finally, it praised the qualities of Dembélé, that was important in front of the Huesca by his desborde and speed. "It is a player that is missing us because they are missing us players that play in band. It knows to play in the two bands, knows to do one against one. It is easier if have something of depth because Leo plays more inside. If it is as it has been today, has a lot of possibilities to play", concluded.
