After the national team break, Ronald Koeman’s work with the Barça squad has been more evident than ever. We were all aware that the level of the players was not at all as bad as the Dutch coach claimed, who has spent this entire start of the season criticizing his own squad.
The vast majority of Barça players have shone with their national teams during the break. Memphis has managed to score a higher number of goals than usual in Barcelona, Busquets has won the trophy for the best player in the semifinals and the final of the League of Nations, Gavi has managed to start with the Spanish team with only 17 years …
This series of events leaves Koeman in the spotlight, a coach who knows that his leaders do not want him there, neither do the players and the fans less, and yet he still has the courage to continue blaming everyone around him except of his own person.
It is evident that the repetitive comments that the Dutch coach tips to the players at a press conference, such as charging Nico with the blame for the first Atlético de Madrid goal in front of all the media, end up undermining the morale of the members of the team. squad, and nights like the Wanda Metropolitano or Benfica in the Champions League end up happening.
It is obvious that if Barcelona did not have this economic crisis that has left the club’s coffers with a serious problem, Ronald Koeman would have been dismissed many months ago, since neither his means nor his methods are what is sought in Barça. . We will see how many opportunities you have left.
