Tiger Fight, September 28th, Barcelona coach Koeman attended the post-match press conference with Villarreal
For the performance of the first half, we scored 4 goals early, and still played beautiful content, excellent rhythm, and had a good turnover in the frontcourt.
I think Fati is still very young, and he still needs to play steadily. Today we see that Fati’s future is very bright, and I am happy for him.
The most important thing is that we have a group of outstanding players who have adapted well to the new formation. Our only dissatisfaction is that the rhythm has dropped in the second half. We still need to continue to work hard to get the team into a better state. Adapt to this lineup and rhythm.
No, his role goes from the right to the inside. We have always positioned him inside, not the wing. He and Messi swap positions. I am still satisfied with him. Not scoring goals is not a problem.
Griezmann has been working very hard. His movement from the right to the inside is very important. He has made a lot of offensive contributions. Today, Messi and Fati scored goals. I hope that the next game will be Griezmann score. The player should have scored.
I think having a number 9 means a different style of play, which is a good thing. But I think there is no problem if there is no number 9.
I think the first half is the best. We need to keep fighting and fighting against opponents. After the last game against Elche, what I said most was dissatisfaction with the team. Today we have created a lot of Opportunities, especially in the first half, our offensive performance is very good.
I think he played very well. I am very satisfied with his performance. I also said when I replaced him. He provided us with depth. I hope he can continue to do so. He still needs to work hard, but Fati is great, very humble and willing to listen to opinions, and we are willing to help him.
First of all, I think it’s still the same sentence. It’s better to have a pure No. 9 than nothing. This means more possibilities. It’s good for our frontcourt players to change positions, but I think there is a more possibility. Good thing.
I don’t think we should pay attention to the players of other teams. Suarez is very good, but he has left. We will not be sad or happy for him. I wish him all the best. At the same time, what Barcelona has to do is to make himself better. it is good. We didn't perform very well in the second half of today, some of the pace dropped, and there were still errors.
This result was a bit unexpected, because we knew that Villarreal was very strong and they played in two league rounds. We only played three warm-up matches. But winning is a good thing, because it gives us more confidence and allows us to better advance our thinking.
