Ronald Koeman does not bite the tongue. Always from the respect, the Dutch technician of the FC Barcelona does not think that have to leave escape opportunities to improve, and is thus that does not have objection in speaking long and tended with his players to clear them what have to avoid and prioritise on the fields. And, when it touches, call them the attention, demand them more and ask them that they leave the skin, something that gives by understood without need of words.

The case is that the Barcelona finds sumido in a sportive depression that has carried him to leave ninth in the classification of LaLiga Santander 2020-21 and, for satisfy, to lose this same week the leadership of group in Champions League. A situation aggravated by the injuries and the tensions extradeportivas, something usual by against in a club of the size of the Barça.

"If it did not have the confidence of my players, could not work"

Koeman, far of achantarse, follows with win and believes firmly that the team will achieve to trace back, go out forward to base of game and results. This same commented this Saturday in press conference, convinced that all will go improving progressively and that the errors, so much the communities like the individual, will finish dying in a second flat.

"I try to respect always to the players, but are in a club that it is necessary to say the things. Before speaking in the press conferences already have spoken with my players. Also it went out that the players asked to change the system, and is lie. They have not complained neither of the system neither of my press conferences. I always speak with respect of them", incidió the Dutch.

"I understand that after the last results have to give the face"

It does not think that he neither his players need a 'coach' for enderezar the situation. It has to go out of inside, of his own mentality. "I do not think that in psychological subject or mental things, because being player of the Barça is a pressure that exists and, the good players, tomorrow have to step forward", analysed. In spite of the last rumours in the press, ensures to feel supported by the staff. "Yes, if it did not have the confidence by his part, can not work. Claro that am concerned and are trying to improve the things, but understand that after the last results have to give the face".

In this sense, has arrived the hour that the heavy weights step advance, and also all the members of the staff to help and row in the good direction. "We are in a situation complicated in the club in all the senses, the staff has win, know what is missing us and some clear players that can cost them the weight to be player of the Barça, because we bet by the young people. It is something that it is necessary to assume and that improve".

The key question is to have a greater concentration and increase the intensity in the parties. "I am speaking of concentration and be aggressive in a moment determinate, doing a fault for example. We fit 11 goals, two of penalti, two of corner, three errors... We are the team that has created more opportunities that any in the League and this is also thanks to the system. Today, without Ansu, without Dembélé, need space for players that play with more freedom with Pedri, Coutinho, Riqui...", it signalled the technician.

A difficult situation for the fans

Finally, it wanted to launch a message to the fans culé: "Obviously it is difficult for the fans, because they have accustomed to win a lot of titles in the last years, and lose parties as in front of the Cádiz or Getafe is difficult, but are in a transition, have to have patience so that in February can see again a winning team".

They asked after him last by the 'derbi' between Real Madrid and Athletic, and did not have doubts when answering. "We can think on other parties, but the first that it is necessary to do is to win our party. Seeing the classification, if the Athletic of Madrid goes first, is better that lose for recortar distance, but have to centre us in the ours", concluded. Koeman, always direct.
