Ronald Koeman carries 100 days at the head of the FC Barcelona and, although the results do not finish to be the best, can not doubt of the green shoots that see
The past season, the FC Barcelona hit rock bottom and needed important changes. It came to hit rock bottom in Champions League during three seasons followed and to having lost the identity of his game, that so much enamoró to the world does a decade. Like this it initiated a process of renewal and bet by young players, giving gone out to some veterans of big weight in the team like Luis Suárez, Arturo Vidal or Ivan Rakitic.
This Friday fulfilled 100 days since Ronald Koeman arrived to the FC Barcelona and can not deny that the problems are accumulating more than the expected in the plans of the Dutch technician, especially in shape of injuries that are not leaving that the team keep a regular line. But, although the results are not being all the positive that it would be desirable, can not deny that there are green shoots in this first centenary of the hero of Wembley in the bench.
For example, with Ronald Koeman, have recovered some of the shots of the game that did trinfar to the FC Barcelona, as it is it the pressure advanced. Of course, the team has to accustom to play with this type of defence more intense and effective, but the command culé in the meetings has increased . With more shooting, the Barcelona picture will be able to optimise this new style, that includes interesting shots like a game of attack more intense and unpredictable.
Besides, they finish the headlines by decree that yes there was with Ernesto Valverde or Quique Setién. With Ronald Koeman, plays in base to the meritocracia and this does not change not even in important parties. To the Dutch trainer does not shiver him the pulse to the hour to bet by the youngsters and is thus that any of the headlines will be able to relax: the place of all is in risk, so much by the performance in the party as in some trainings that have increased his intensity.
Some of these youngsters by which bets Ronald Koeman ilusionan to think in big: Ansu Fati (18 years) has showed that when it recover has quality to be one of the leaders of the team, Pedri (18) also has settled in the team title, Segiño Dest (19) seems that it carry years playing in the FC Barcelona... All this without mentioning to others of big future like Francisco Trincao (20), Riqui Puig (21) or Ronald Araújo (21). There is future and there is a brave trainer that bets by him.
The duties of Ronald Koeman
Of course, it is necessary to do self-criticism and leave clear that Ronald Koeman still has pending subjects: do that the improvement in the game translate in better results that the obtained up to now, recover to the best Leo Messi, settle the 4-2-3-1 or see if there are better options... But the true is that the Dutch is a trainer that is valeinte so much by the clear that speaks as for facing the bench of the Camp Nou in a so difficult situation. It deserves all the respect of the world, in addition to time to settle some ideas that, in 100 days, begin to root in the team.
