Environment caldeado in the FC Barcelona after the defeat against the Cádiz. In the previous of the clash that the Barcelona will have against the Juventus to close the phase of groups of the Champions League, Ronald Koeman left clear in press conference his anger by what sucedió in earths gaditanas. Besides, it left to fall some statements that sounded to 'pulla' for some.

All this originated when the Dutch technician elogió to Pedri by his maturity and capacity to adapt to play in distinct positions of the one of mediapunta, more natural for him. "It is something big by his part because it always deserves to be. It knows to play well from different positions where need him. It is a tactical subject of the team. It can bet a lot of things, because it is a play smart, and the smart players do not have problem in playing in another place", commented.

Of course, they were words of recognition for the young Canarian footballer, although of this also can extract some pulla for other footballers that go down in hammered when they displace them of his position. Something that comes showing with Antoine Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho, that play to a big level by the centre but that are not neither a shadow of them same when they displace them to a side.

In fact, it does some weeks, the own Antoine Griezmann had launched him another pulla indirect to Ronald Koeman ensuring that in the French selection was able to play to the one hundred by one hundred because the seleccionador 'bleu' Didier Deschamps knew in which position plant him. In this moment, the Frenchman was used to to play in the band, position in which it did not surrender well, although now it has increased his level playing more near of the area.

In the same previous press conference to the FC Barcelona-Juventus, Ronald Koeman also was very explicit in this appearance in reference to Philippe Coutinho. "Coutinho Knows that it prefers to play by the half, but if it plays in band has total freedom of movement. It is always look for the maximum of each player. In our staff there are more players that likes them play by the half. We can not play with five by the half", commented, leaving him clear to the Brazilian that will have to adapt.

In the appearance of the position on the field, Ronald Koeman also did reference to Miralem Pjanic, that in a recent interview exteriorizó his dissatisfaction by not playing too much. "His position and his function can not compare with the Juventus. We play different that they. It has cost, it has cost also because it has arrived late. I do not have any doubt on Pjanic. The decisions always are the best for the team", sentenced.

Koeman, loved with Pedri
