Koeman: The result is unfair, and it's hard to win the league


Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman said that his team deserved a better result, after a 1-1 draw with its guest Eibar in the 16th round of the Spanish League Championship.

The Dutch coach stated: "My opinion is that in the first half, there was no effectiveness in the passes between the lines, they pressed us well."

He continued: "Once again a goal was scored on us from a mistake. I do not hold anyone responsible. We played well, but the result is unfair. Dembele is an important player for the team who helps us a lot, especially with his speed and skill in dribbling."

He added: "Today we deserved to win, we created a good number of chances to win. Today we were good and the team was hot. We did everything necessary to win, but in the end we did not win and this happens."

He continued: "There were many passes backwards, and this does not help us. We should focus more on passes forward. We did not look enough for the players between the lines in order to create a greater danger."

And he added: "There is a transfer within the club, young players, but this does not mean that the team does not have enough stage to win. Of course we missed Messi today. He is a great player who always makes the difference. There were things against us today, the most important of which is that the opponent with a single shot scored on us." .

He added, "Coutinho said that he suffers from discomfort in his left knee. More checks will be done in order to identify the type of injury tomorrow."

And he continued: "You cannot say that Barcelona plays better without Messi because he is a player who always makes the difference. You cannot think like this."

He concluded: "When there is no Messi, there is Griezmann who missed a penalty kick in one match and Braithwaite scored in another, the players agreed with each other in order to pay Braithwaite, in fact it is difficult to win the league, it is not impossible, but we must understand the difference between us and the leader." .
