Barcelona will face Celta in the fourth round of La Liga. Coach Koeman attended the press conference before the game.
This will be a difficult game, and we have not won away games in recent years. The opponent is good, there are good players, we need to perform well.
This is a very positive signal. The team captain calls for unity. This is always a positive thing.
This is the decision of the players and the club. As you can see, I will count on Dembele. He performed well in the first week, but was a bit sluggish last week. Dembele did not start because we have a lot of players, and Fati proved his excellence.
I don't know if I have everything to make Messi happy in Barcelona. We need to find the best team for him so that he can shine and find the most suitable position. Messi was born for football, and Messi will give everything to win, even in training games.
VAR is always full of controversy, not only in Spain, but also in other countries. Sometimes we value VAR too much. If it is to check for offside, then I am a supporter of VAR, but I don’t agree with handball because there are too many different standards.
We need to analyze what the team lacks. We know that the team has financial problems, everyone is the same, but there are one or two positions we all want to improve, the team is looking for a new number 9.
I am not worried. Griezmann is doing very well. On the right, there is more freedom. I am satisfied with him. When I coached the Netherlands and faced France before, Griezmann appeared on the right. He could create threats in different places.
For players who don't have too many opportunities, the best way is to find the next home.
No position is more important. In terms of player types, we are even more short of central defenders. Pique, Langley and Araujo are not enough, so we promoted Mingo of Team B.
I hope there are two players in each position, Messi and Griezman can play the 9th position, but not the type of Brethwaite.
We have four weeks of pre-season preparation time and we train very hard. We have only played one game now and there will be a lineup change, but I will not rotate because it is not necessary.
First of all, we should not distinguish between home and away. What we want is always the same, to put pressure on the opponent and control the game. I don't care about what happened last season. We are confident that we will perform well in the away game.
I talked to Durst about playing for the Netherlands, but he finally decided to play for the United States. This is no problem, it is good for American football.
