Koeman praises Barcelona players despite the draw with Cadiz and attacks the arbitration

Dutch coach Ronald Koeman praised the performance of his players.

Despite the goalless draw with Cadiz, he stressed that his team missed the last touch in front of the opponent’s goal, in the match that brought them together on Thursday evening.

And this is at the “Ramon de Carranza” stadium, at the end of the sixth round of the Spanish League.

Koeman spoke at the end of the meeting, saying:

“The team was good, we had a lot of possession, I can’t blame the players, they were good, and we missed the final touch in tonight’s game.”

He added:

“We could have won if we had scored the chances we got, especially in the last minutes of the match, which was difficult against an opponent who closed a lot of spaces.”

The Barca coach attacked the arbitration, saying:

“De Jong’s expulsion made the match more difficult. In this country they expel you for nothing. I told the referee that there was another ball on the field and he sent me off, it was not the nervousness that was the reason.”

On his future with the team, the Dutchman said:

“The coach’s future will not be the result of a match. We need to highlight the team’s work and the level and performance in which it appears. We need to win in order for the passion to return.”

Cadiz vs Barcelona

The first half of the match was poor on the part of the two teams, which did not witness any chance on goal from both sides.

The ball was controlled by Barcelona, ​​without a threat to Cadiz’s goal.

The result remained the same in the second half, which saw the expulsion of the Catalan-Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong in the 65th minute after receiving a second yellow card.

Barcelona raised its score to the ninth point in seventh place, while Kadesh’s score rose to the sixth point in the fourteenth place.

Real Madrid leads with 16 points, after its big victory over Real Mallorca 6-1 yesterday, Wednesday.

Barcelona stumbled against Granada in the last round of La Liga, drawing 1-1 amid widespread criticism from the Blaugrana fans.

This is an objection to the technical level of the Catalan team, and the continuation of Dutch coach Ronald Koeman.

The Catalan team was absent from tonight’s match, Jordi Alba, Pedri, Braithwaite, Ansu Fati, Dembele, and Aguero, due to injury.
