FC Barcelona Patzt again
The FC Barcelona once again left feathers in the Spanish Primera Division. In the relegation candidate FC Cadiz, the team of Ronald Koeman did not come out over a 0-0.
From the first five games Barca thus brought only two victories and made three draws. Although Barca still has a game less, yet there are already seven points to leaders and rival Real Madrid.
Barca defender Sergi Roberto wanted to know about a crisis after the again weak occurrence of Barcas. The squad is very good, we have injured players, but that s no excuse. We have the squad to fight for the championship, I do not believe that the other teams have a better squad than we, he said in Spanish TV. Barca must now only get the curve.
Gerard Pique also has only the championship in mind despite weak season start: I will not bear the Barca jersey to become the second or third party. Until then, it is a way away.
Ronald Koeman receives back cover – at least to Sunday
On Sunday, Barca UD Levante receives another descent candidate. BARCA will be missing Frenkie de Jong. The Dutchman saw the traffic light card against Cadiz within four minutes (61, 64.). At the second foul de Jong first played the ball and then slipped into his opponent, but pulled his legs back. The point reference was coated, but fits in the current situation of the Catalans.
Ronald Koeman stands after the 0: 3 defeat as well as the draw against Cadiz and Granada (1: 1) early in the season before. According to information of game and Goal, Barca s leadership has already decided to change a coach change. Only the right to wait for the right moment. The next country break is probably the next country break in early October.
At least in the next league game against Levant, Koeman is probably still on the side line. Koeman is our coach. We have a game in three days, and we have to support him with all the strength, said Barcas Technical Director Ramon Planes after the game in Cadiz.
Ronald Koeman with bizarre press conference
Apparently from the criticism of the achievements of his team, Koeman was looking for the flight forward during the week. In a bizarre three-minute press conference, Koeman defended himself and his team by providing a prepared statement. He called for patience and again referred to the debt mountain of the club as well as the transition in the squad. Without questions, he left the press conference again after his monologue.
Anyway, Koeman s appearance had a positive effect on the performance of the team against Cadiz. Barca was harmless, hardly came to opportunities despite a lot of possession. The greatest option for awarded the newcomer and supposed salvation brawers Memphis deepay as he did not hit the ball about six meters in front of the gate after a cross of Luuk de Jong.
Barca also remained in the episode without compelling opportunities and ran to De Jong s dismissal danger to collecting even the first defeat in Laliga. Marc-Andre Ter Stegen kept his team in one-counter-one-duel with Salvi Sanchez but the point. At the end, a third-party ratio of 13: 6 was in favor of Cadiz. Ter Stegen was chosen to the player of the game.
Koeman to Remis satisfied with his team
Despite everything, Koeman was satisfied with his team after the game. About the setting of the players I can not complain at all. We did everything we could, said the Dutch.
In the final phase, a wild break exchange developed. DEPAY awarded another huge chance for Barca. However, it remained at the 0: 0. Due to the loud complaints of Koeman shortly before the final whistle, the coach flew still with red from the square (96th). A significant scene.
