Nevertheless, the one of Zaandam went back to insist in that the most important is that Leo follow, leaving fall that it would renounce to the 'Principito' without doubting it.

Koeman, contrary to that Pedri go to the Games

It has made a big season, playing almost all the minutes of the parties. Afterwards four days of party, travel to Japan and have to go back... I think that it is too much. It is necessary to protect to the players. For me an olympic game is more athletics that football", apuntilló.
