Ronald Koeman also had to touch controversial subjects in the previous press conference to the party against the Real Sociedad. To the Dutch asked after him Miralem Pjanic and Riqui Puig, two footballers with which is explaining much less of what expected . It surprises especially that the bosnio have been only title in a party in what it goes of League and that have remained without playing in five of the 11 days that has contested the Barça.

In spite of the numbers and of the complaints of the Balkan midfield player, the technician is calm and thinks that is well that the ex of the Juve was annoying.

They have to be dissatisfactions and work to have opportunities to play", aimed.

On Riqui, the one of Zaandam left clear that is not the only player that plays little and left to fall that it does not like him that it was the only acting that appears usually in the means.

Of the French neither dared to say a date of turn. "It is training individually, I do not want to give a date, ojalá that it was prompt because by his qualities need it", admitted.

Finally, it stood out the paper of Frenkie of Jong against the Raise, against which showed his capacity to break lines in the first. "Frenkie Always has been a player to carry the weight to build the game from backwards, as it has done in the Ajax and the selection, but can break lines because it is very fast. We are working so that it carry the weight from backwards, but especially so that it was important breaking lines in the last stretch of the field", concluded.
