Ronald Koeman decided to focus his speech on the referee and the VAR after the defeat against Madrid, but perhaps he should have also criticized himself. The Dutchman's field management in the Classic was terrible in every way
"The penalti has influenced a lot. I do not understand the VAR, think that only is VAR when it is against the Barcelona. These agarrones happen always in the area. We carry five parties and any has benefited us. The cards of Getafe.... We do not deserve us lose like this. I have said him that ojalá some day can explain me how works the VAR in Spain. We carry five days and the VAR only has gone in against of the Barça. Never in favour". East was the speech against the referee and the VAR of Ronald Koeman after the Classical against the Real Madrid.
The Dutch technician decided that it was the moment to heave the voice in front of the arbitrations against the Barça and believed convenient to centre his press conference post party in this. But the one of Zaandam obzecó so much in his words against the arbitration that forgot of the always necessary self-criticism. And in this case, the Barcelona trainer had spare reasons as to devote him a chapter of his conference to the errors that his players and especially that he committed along the crash.
Koeman Thought that had it all controlled
The Barça, further of the VAR and of the arbitration, no cuajó a good meeting against the Madrid. This is something evident and that already has commented a lot of these days, but what went even more evident is the terrible management of field of Koeman in the Classical. The Dutch was horrible in all the senses and in any moment knew to read what asked the party. It did not help to that his footballers surpassed the problems that generated the whites and did the changes late and badly.
His first error, perhaps, was to bet by Pedri like right extreme. The Canarian deserved the titularity definitely, but no in this position, since his a lot of qualities go to rack and ruin. It connected some time with Leo Messi or Sergiño Dest, but generally was disappeared. It was evident that was not comfortable and that was not being his best afternoon for this reason, but still like this the míster Barcelona did not substitute him until the minute 82.
Koeman Did the changes late and badly
Neither it hit Koeman with Sergio Busquets, that asked to cries a change in the second part. The one of Badia saw surpassed by the midfield madridista and by Fede Valverde that seemed an aeroplane to his side. It lost several committed balls and was not fine in the pass. The crash asked to Miralem Pjanic, with other virtues more chords to what was posing the Madrid, but the Dutch not even took out to the field to the bosnio.
Finally, anybody understood that the one of Zaadanm did not take out to Ousmane Dembélé, Francisco Tricao or even Antoine Griezmann until the 82. It took too much in doing the replacements and when it did it already was very late. The Barça needed something distinct from the 1-2, but his trainer did not know to give it and the only that did was to expect. The team asked speed, disequilibrium and more goal, but when it put all this in the field the Madrid already saw winning. At the end, Luka Modric sentenced and the Barcelona of a desacertado Koeman fell by second consecutive crash in LaLiga.
