Barcelona don't remember Bayern Munich for good, the Catalans don't have nice memories when the Bavarians arrive at the Camp Nou. As of this night, they have more reason to be afraid of Bayern. Barcelona did not have a shoot at the Camp Nou !? Shameful betrayal of Koeman's chosen ones.
But the Dutchman usually has an excuse. One or more of them, it doesn't matter. Things will not be good in Blaugrana for a while. The fans understand, says Ronald Koeman ... Is it really like that or is he simply ignoring the whistles at the Camp Nou addressed to him and the players? His story does not match the tone.
"The fans understand what situation we are in. We need time to overcome the problems. Things will change. Today, the players have shown that they have a great future ahead of them, and everything will look better when Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele and Sergio Aguero return.
", said the Dutch strategist after the end of the duel with the Bavarians. Meticulous statisticians found out that Barcelona has not kicked on goal in the Champions League for the first time since their 2003/2004 season.
If you ask Ronald Koeman the reason is simple: there were no options in attack "We only had three strikers available. At the moment, we have that, that's all we have, we would like to have more options. " And that's not the end of alibi stories ...
"We have to be realistic. Jordi Alba was injured, Luuk de Jong played with the new team for the first time. Not everything can be perfect right away." When the coach of Barcelona saw his ship was sailing, he started to replace experienced first team players with beardless youth.
Ronald Koeman as a broken record. Youth, youth, youth. "We have several players who have a great future ahead of them. There are a lot of them under 20 and there is a difference in games like this." "In time, these young guys will progress and mature into great players.
I can't blame the team when it comes to commitment. We had a lot of young players. They will only show what they can do in two or three years. " Ronald Koeman is right about one thing. Bayern is currently ahead of Barcelona.
Well, the difference is like heaven and earth. Barcelona is no longer one of the creme della creme of European football, and Bavarians are among the first favorites to raise the "ear cup" At Camp Nou, they confirmed that.
"Bayern was better than us. They deservedly celebrated. There is an obvious difference in quality between the players. We have a small number of world-class players." "Today we finished the game with four or five players who are about 18 years old, and yet there were moments when we were tactically good and in control, "Ronald Koeman underlined. Trophies and results are the only language that Barcelona fans understand.
