The FC Barcelona will measure to the Real Madrid this Saturday to the 16:00 hours (peninsular schedule Spanish) in the Camp Nou. Ronald Koeman, trainer of the Barcelona group, appeared in the usual press conference to analyse what can give of if the party against the eternal rival, in what it will be his first Classical directing to the Catalan team from the bench.

The technician culé does not want to fiarse of the Real Madrid. "I think that in both teams there is a lot of pressure. And the performance does not depend of the result of the last party, neither for us neither for them. The Real Madrid can have not been to the level in the two last meetings, but this does not want to say that it avenges with the low morals. It is a big team with people experienced that knows to hold the pressure. They know that it touches to win the party. I do not think that it influence them what has happened recently", said.

Also it spoke on the fact to première in a Classical like first trainer of the FC Barcelona. "Ojalá That sleep calm. It is different to be trainer. It is a different party to the other for all. Always there is more pressure, but carry a lot of years in this sport and my feeling is that we go to play an important party against our rival. I am accustomed to hold the pressure and to sleep quietly", affirmed.

It commented the interview made by Gerard Hammered in a critical tone against the directive of the FC Barcelona. "It carries a lot of years here and I three months. Has his opinion and the respect. It is smart and knows that if it does an interview of this type and that tomorrow will be and will play well. Respect all the opinions if it is put in the subject, and he is it in spite of this interview", ensured.

Ronald Koeman also reiterated that it does not expect to find to a Real Madrid toneless. "As any team and trainer, when you commit errors want to improve. But neither they neither we will be lacking of motivation. The players have experience in a high level. I do not expect a vulnerable Madrid, on the contrary. Have to prepare us to us same. The rival has quality, sometimes plays 4-4-2 and others with 4-3-3, and will not leave the spaces of the two last parties. We expect him more compact and with fewer spaces. Also it is important for them if it is Sergio Bouquets, is a big head office and with a big personality in the field. His presence can influence", said.

"Sergio Bouquets is one of the best and can influence in the Classical"


On the other hand, it sees to the very motivated team. "I do not have any complaint, have showed hunger and ambition. A Classical always is something more and want to win the party home, to have confidence and to show that we are in the good way", said, adding that "I think that is a party equalised, does not depend on the concrete situation. They are two teams of quality and experience, the odd is that there is not public. They are parties that decide by details".

Ronald Koeman did not want to put in controversies regarding the tension between the players and the directive. "I am not concerned therefore, because I do not see that in the trainings or parties notice . By part of the club is normal, understand the posture of the club by the coronavirus and also the one of the players. I what have to do is to command in the trainings and in the parties and win. If I see something different, go to speak with them. It is necessary to leave to a side the subject extradeportivo and in the another your work like player", considered.

Also it remembered Classical his: "I Have played quite a lot of and have won and stray parties. I remember the 5-0, in which I put a goal of beautiful fault. And memory also the first Classical, with a 2-1 for us. I put two penaltis, and the second cancelled it to me and went back it to put. And this was the first, and therefore it was more special. Be player of the Barça is different to the other teams, and the Classical is special because it speaks from days before, have more motivation.... But it is necessary to be calm, have the cold head, think in the game... For a youngster is something more, but it is necessary to concentrate".

Besides, it spoke on the relief generacional. "They play those that have quality and performance. It is well that change the team a bit, because there is very good young players that deserve play. They need support and show that they deserve a place. Ansu Fati Will be a star in the future, but has to work and develop. We will support him so that it was one of the best in the world, and will do the same with the this of youngsters", affirmed.

Antoine Griezmann and Jordi Alba, headlines?

On the possibility that Antoine Griezmann was headline, Ronald Koeman did not ensure at all but gave him options. "As any one, has options to play. It is not well argue in each party his function. There are more players. We want that all are to the maximum level. The team is the most important and choose the best for the meeting", signalled.

The trainer of the FC Barcelona also gave options for Jordi Alba, that comes of an injury but that went in in the list of summoned. "The last word has it the player. He knows if it is in conditions to play. We will decide us morning. I see all positive, but it is necessary to expect in case it happens something. If it does not happen at all, has options to be tomorrow", commented.
