After the draw with Sevilla, Barcelona coach Koeman analyzed the game and admitted that his opponent was in better physical condition.
It was a difficult game, they did a good job of oppression, our problem is that we didn't play the way we wanted when we had the ball. They performed well, pressed well, physically stronger than us, and were a strong team. I think we played well, but we lost too many goals in the second half, so it was difficult to grasp the rhythm of the game. I am satisfied with the performance of the team. The players were very tired, but the battle was at the end, but Sevilla was a great opponent.
Their foul against Leo may have been a penalty.
I haven't watched that match, they told me it was a penalty. There was VAR in the game. They looked at what happened and decided not to call the penalty kick. They should accept this penalty.
He is a confident young player, even though he has only been here for three days. His performance is a good thing, and we are very satisfied. He can play on both sides.
We can be satisfied with our work, the team looks very positive and we need more time to train together. These are three complex games. We win two and one draw. I am very satisfied. The opponents are very difficult to deal with. Seven points are satisfactory.
I hope everyone will be well when they come back from the national team. The next schedule is difficult. We only have a few days to prepare.
He needs the help and trust of the coach, but he should perform. His outstanding performance in these games proves that he is an amazing player.
We conceded too many goals. The best chances in the game were ours, Griezmann twice and Trincon once... I was very satisfied with the performance before the end. Both sides were very tired. I think the substitutions worked and brought us rhythm. I think we could have won.
I think this is a fierce game. In Vigo, we beat one less man and we were exhausted. We lack vitality, inspiration and depth. This is a tense week, and we hope that after the end of the international competition day, everyone can come back in good condition.
I would not say that he is in the best form because he did well in the games against Villarreal and Celta, and today he is not doing well like everyone else.
He played a great game, he was confident and he was physically fit. We have been training his backcourt and he played a game we were looking forward to. Although he is very young, he has the conditions to become a great central defender. We will help him improve.
Anything can be done better. We have been working hard for four or five weeks. We started the game later than other teams. The intensity of the matches on a week or three is very high. The appearance of the last few games has changed very well. Our performance is not very good, but it should be admitted that Seville has caused us considerable trouble.
Replacing him in the last game was a tactical substitution. Anzu (Fati) gave us more depth and speed, which was what we needed when we played less than one player in Vigo.
