Curiously, the two signings crashes of the Barcelona in the past summer did not attain to be to the height of the expectations in his first season, but the technician culé seems to have the key so that both improve his provision.

In an interview to the Dutch television 'US', Ronald Koeman desvela that the key so that Frenkie of Jong and Antoine Griezmann triumph is that they play in his natural positions, in which they attained to stand out in his previous teams. That is to say, that the Dutch midfield player play like mediocentro and that the French attacker do not do it hit to the band.

Like this the things, Ronald Koeman spoke first of Frenkie of Jong and ensures that it will plant him like pivote. "The plan is to begin to play with Frenkie of Jong in the position in which it played in the Ajax and plays also with the national selection", manifested, adding that "memory that assisted to a party of the FC Barcelona and saw it play in a position and thought for me:'never it would put it here'".

Ronald Koeman remembered that the FC Barcelona "has spent a lot of money in a young player. Then it would have to play with him in his own position, where can offer his best performance. It has showed in the Ajax and with the Dutch selection in which position seats him better and here is where will play also in the Barcelona", sustained, adding that "there is a hard competition by this paper, by what will have to be in big form, but will be in a position that suit him".

For Antoine Griezmann, Roinald Koeman will try to do him play in the same position that occupied in the Athletic of Madrid, that was where better played. "The same occurs with Antoine Griezmann. It is not a traditional extreme, by what it is necessary to interpret it in his own position, in a paper that adapt to him and where can show his skills", signalled.

Ronald Koeman, with the very clear ideas

Ronald Koeman recalcó that "you have to know to your players like trainer and ensure you to take out the best of them". And this is what goes to do like trainer of the FC Barcelona. The Dutch is a technician known for adapting his diagrams of game to the staff of which has, and no for trying fit to players in an only valid system. It is thus that seems the trainer indicated to face a so difficult situation.
