In the interview he gave to 'Marca', Koeman spoke about the style of play of Barça or the Netherlands, and how he, as a coach, has learned to adapt to each situation. That is precisely something that Setién has not learned to do in his Barça.
"It likes me play from backwards but see so many problems to some groups when the contrary presiona, lose the balloon and goal against... At the end it depends on which players have and of the contrary. Sometimes it is necessary to play the balloon in long". This statement forms part of the interview of Ronald Koeman to the newspaper 'Mark'. The reflection of the Dutch trainer is tremendously interesting, especially for the FC Barcelona, that precisely has important problems in looking for solutions when it can not play to his way.
Quique Setién arrived to the group barcelonista went down the mantra of the game of touch and the possession of the balloon. The santanderino said that "it would die with his ideas" and in these months at the head of the team has given samples that like this it will be. The Cantabrian does not have two forms to understand the football and this has caused that in a lot of parties, too many, the Barça was a flat team, without ideas and with serious problems to generate occasions and defend in front of the pressure advanced.
The Dutch reflexionó on the importance of the style of game in clubs like the Barcelona and left clear that, in spite of being of the Dutch school, with all what this involves, the most important is the result and work the best that can with the footballers that has . "In the Barcelona, the style has to be always that, but the football evolves: there are more ways to arrive to Rome. The most attractive game supposes that it is with three forwards, but see teams doing the things very well with a 4-4-2 or the other day with the Atalanta goleó with five defences and also is something beautiful. It likes me a brave philosophy, but at the end the most important is the result", explained.
Setién Has showed to have waist with the system of game and has happened to play with three backwards and two carrileros, to play with a 4-3-3 and later to the 4-4-2. The problem of the ex of the Betis is not so much the system, but it is the conception of the game. To the of Santander gives him the same that the rival presione or shut to go out to the against, his Barça always goes to play of the same way. This in the football of nowadays in which all is studied to the millimetre is a serious problem, since it does not take out the best of all his footballers.
Adapt to the rival, to the meeting or to your own players is vital to win titles and be the best possible team. In the case of the culés is it more, since it is all so centred in the ball that the defensive section remains in a second flat and finish being the big heel of Achilles of the club. Koeman Knows it and along his career has tried to centre in everything. "I am a trainer that always think more in having the balloon that in defending, but defend is part of the football and has to do . I am more realistic that a lot of Dutch. In my path in the Ajax or PSV attain good results against teams stronger, although no always kept our ways", signalled.
Setién Would have to reflexionar on what says Koeman
In definite, the reflection of Koeman would have to serve precisely so that Setién do the same and change something his mentality. The ex of The Palms carries all his career thinking equal and seems complicated that it change to these heights, but if it does not do it could finish leaving of the Barcelona without having triumphed. The ideas of the Cantabrian are very good, but with the current staff has to have less rigidity to the hour to face the parties. This stop has to serve, between other things, so that the technician work all these appearances to improve of face to when it restart the competition.
