The defeat against Bayern (0: 3) at the beginning of the competition in the Champions League woke up the critics of Ronaldo Koean and warmed up the almost always current topic about the fate of the Dutch strategist. The controversy over the head of the Catalans' professional staff was an inevitable topic at the conference before the match against Granada scheduled for tomorrow at the Camp Nou.
"I am not afraid for my future. There are people who are for and against Ronald Koeman and that cannot be changed. They are speaking, not me," said the Dutchman and then added: "A lot depends on the team's results, but there are also exaggerated things.
There are segments related to those, changes in the playing staff, injuries, a rejuvenated team." "People who know, understand that we need time after the changes. You can't ask me before the game with Bayern if I will renew my contract for another year, and after that I get a questions whether I am afraid for my future.
That is not normal. " The simplest recipe for peace are victories, and Koeman is aware of that and hopes for a better edition tomorrow. "It's important to set up the game, prepare the team and try to win every game.
I'm more realistic than the opportunist, because a little over a year ago Barça lost 2: 8 to Bayern with Messi, Griezmann and Suarez on the field."
"Now we finished the game with Mingueza, Eric Garcia, Demir, Gavi, Pedri ...
And we all hope that Ansu Fati will join them, "said Koeman, who added that he is calm, and that he is only thinking about the match with Granada because other issues are not in his jurisdiction. Barcelona have two wins and a draw in the Primera Division, while Granada suffered two defeats after the introductory two rounds in which they won one point.
In the next week, the Catalans will play three championship matches, and the end of the month will mark a new challenge in the Champions League against Benfica. It is obvious that Barcelona fans do not have patience and that they want their team to start playing better as soon as possible.
They are aware that Barcelona is currently in the process of creating a new team that will consist of young players, but they believe that this team can do more, and that Barcelona's ambitions must always be to win trophies.
Koeman came to Barcelona at the most difficult moment, and will have the difficult task of trying to create a once strong Barcelona again
