Criticisms on Barça TV to the eleven chosen by Koeman: “The Koeman thing is very good on paper …, but I would have put Ansu”
The Barça TV members have been especially critical of the eleven chosen by Koeman to play it in the Champions League against Dinamo Kiev. The Dutch coach has left Ansu Fati on the bench after being decisive against Valencia.
Salvador Garcia, Former Barcelona player, on Barça TV: “I was surprised by the choice of eleven. Koeman already said that Ansu could not play all three games. The other day was the first game. And there is a big difference between a Barça with Ansu and a Barça without Ansu. Today is the fundamental party. I would have put Ansu Fati. Do not forget that this is very good on paper but we are tired of seeing the Sheriff winning at the Bernabéu, PSG could not with Brugge … Today is fundamental and, if I have three games (Valencia, Dinamo and Madrid), this is the most important. The others are not a life or death match and can be recovered. He has surprised me in such an important match. Barça with Ansu and without Ansu has nothing to do with it. We all have in mind the last games and the difficulties to generate danger. We need to score and win clearly. Koeman is the technician, I don’t have to say anything here. He has the power and he will have his reasons, but he has never ceased to amaze me. “
