Since his arrival at the Barcelona substitute bench, Ronald Koeman has shown absolute personality to publicly testify on the issues he considers. He made some corrections to Lionel Messi before the media, he did not hesitate to express himself about the short circuit with Antoine Griezmann And now he also decided to detail before the microphones the things that he intends to improve on the young promise Ansu Fati .
“He must keep working, keep improving. Yesterday I was with Ansu for a little while talking about the issue of concentration . In that sense he has to improve . Sometimes his turnovers are due to concentration, not quality . He can improve and in that sense he has our help every day ”, he stated at the press conference prior to the match against Alavés for the 8th round of the Spanish League.
“He is a talent, a very good player, he has performance and you have to take good care of him. Especially its projection. We must help him to improve things. One of the things is what I said before, the issue of concentration . You have to be prepared, focused every day to improve, ”said the 57-year-old Dutch coach who spent six seasons as a player at the Blaugrana club.

Among various topics that he touched on before journalists, Koeman responded about Diego Armando Maradona's 60th birthday and left his verdict on the historic comparison with Lionel Messi: “ Maradona in his time has been the best player, today for me Messi is the best player . But you cannot compare football in our time with that of today. Soccer today is more physical, more rhythm, high intensity . It has changed a lot. But in his time, he has been the best, he has shown in his teams, he has shown here at Barcelona and he has shown in the Argentine team. Hopefully I'm older than 60 ”.
Without escaping any thorny issue, he once again got fully into the tense atmosphere in which he lives due to the irregular performance of Antoine Griezmann, who had a good level in the victory against Juventus for the Champions League. “ If you win a game like the other day, you can see the atmosphere in the locker room, it's normal . After the game with Madrid we were sad and the other day we were very happy with the result but above all with the game, “he clarified as an introduction.
“It shows in any player. On the subject of Antoine I don't have a complaint about his attitude or his training, he always tries to give his best . Hopefully we will bring him a bit of luck by his side because the other day in the two plays he did well and in that sense it would be good for him to score to be very calm, “he explained.
