In front of the fault of reinforcements, Ronald Koeman wants that all the players of his staff keep full commitment. It has all until final of season
Ronald Koeman has not had it at all easy since it arrived to the FC Barcelona. The Dutch trainer arrived after a historical humiliation in Champions League against the Bayern of Munich that put end to a cycle and initiated another. A lot of drops of important players -Luis Suárez, Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal or Nélson Semedo- and a lot of new faces with less experience but with many win to win to face the challenge.
The big problem of Ronald Koeman began when the chaotic financial situation of the FC Barcelona owing to the pandemia -without evading the bad management of the managerial board chaired by Josep Maria Bartomeu- did not allow to the Dutch have to the reinforcements that wanted: Eric García (Manchester City) and Memphis Depay (Olympique of Lyon). The Dutch technician knew that it would have to face up to a season with four competitions with a short staff.
The problem aggravated with the bad luck of some players of the FC Barcelona with the injuries of long length. Ronald Koeman lost first to his maximum goleador, Ansu Fati, by a break of meniscus; it followed Gerard Hammered, leader of the defence, with a multiple injury in the knee; it fell Sergi Roberto, right side headline, by a break in the rectum femoral of the thigh; and, finally, Philippe Coutinho, with another break of meniscus.
The market of winter neither contributed good news for Ronald Koeman, to the that denied him the signing of Eric García by opposition of the candidates Joan Laporta and Toni Freixa, that did not give green light to Carles Tusquets to advance the operation. All this left very touched to the Dutch trainer, that has had to throw forward with the little that has after remaining without signings and without several indisputable headlines by injury.
It is thus that Ronald Koeman, according to the informations desveladas by the newspaper 'Sport', has transmitted to his players a clear message: "we Are those that are and can not weaken us more". The trainer of the FC Barcelona asked to the maximum footballers implication and take care the details in the personal life -as the habits or the hours of rest- to avoid new injuries that weaken even more the staff.
Ronald Koeman, a trainer of clear ideas
Ronald Koeman no only has expressed to his players privately what really want to, but publicly it does it continuously. "If you are player of the Barça it is necessary to demand. I criticise them with respect. I do not go to by anybody, want to help them, but if we play against the Cornellà with all the respect and are not able to win in 90 minutes, have to say what see, if no, bring to another trainer", said, in the previous of the party against the Elche.
