Ronald Koeman, Barcelona trainer, appeared in front of the media in the usual back press conference to the parties and showed satisfied by the performance of the team against the picture of Jagoba Arrasate.

Of the same way that Antoine Griezmann, showed ambitious of face to be able to win LaLiga Santander. "Win is important because we needed it. Have six parties to the end of the year and want to win to aspire to the League. We have had occasions and have marked. I am very happy. Osasuna Defends a lot and have had to play in his field. We have had a good rhythm of balloon", said.

Also elogió the work of Martin Braithwaite, that marked two goals in front of the Dinamo of Kiev and went back to 'wet' in front of the navarros. "It is hard at work to have opportunities and have parties. It showed his quality against the Dynamo of Kiev and today thought that we needed a player like him to move in small spaces. We needed a 9 of his characteristics", commented.

The Barcelona technician also showed satisfied with the ease that had his team to generate occasions of goal, converting four of them to finish goleando. "We know that they played well and have apstado by with five footballers backwards, and like this was necessary to give him rhythm to the balloon. Had several opportunities to mark", manifested.

"It is the Griezmann that want: fight, works and has effectiveness"

Ronald Koeman also elogió to Antoine Griezmann. "Today I have seen him very well. From his position, with freedom... It has given an assistance, has marked a big goal... It is the player that want, that struggles and works and has effectiveness. He has not changed. He always has worked to the maximum. But it can be that by his movements today has had more spaces. And the goal gives him confidence", affirmed.

The trainer of the first team of the FC Barcelona also spoke on the homage of Leo Messi​ to the recently died Diego Armando Maradona, removing the Barcelona T-shirt to teach the one of Newell's with the 10' of the Lint. "It did not know that had this ready homage. Could expect . It has been a big gesture. It has been a big moment. He had it thought", explained.

With Óscar Mingueza, remained happy by his big party but also stood out some error that committed. "I have said him that has done a very good party, but has lost two balloons and can not be. And I have commented it to him. A bad control can be an occasion of the rival. You can do a good party, but two failures can cost you the meeting. It has to learn and improve", signalled.

Ronald Koeman also referred to Clément Lenglet, that twisted the ankle and had to be substituted. The trainer of the FC Barcelona showed optimist on his physical state: "I Have spoken with the doctor, and seems, although it is necessary to expect until morning, that is not very grave. I do not know if it will arrive for the party of the Wednesday. Ojalá Was not grave".

Koeman, optimistic by LaLiga

Another of the subjects by which Ronald Koeman showed proud was the fact to having kept the goal to zero. "We have had altibajos in some moments of concentration and they have had occasions. They have deserved a goal, by our fault of concentration. This in a meeting equalised can not happen", considered.

Finally, it recognised that LaLiga is complicated, but remembered that the season is very long. "I think that it is a situation complicated for us, are missing us points. The calendar is tightened until final of year and can not fail more. The of yesterday of the Real Madrid is the example that if a party is not well have complications. The Athletic of Madrid is strong. The season is long and can happen a lot of things", sentenced.
