Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman admitted that they cannot stop at the departure of Lionel Messi.
Messi and Barcelona parted ways after being together for more than 20 years, but Koeman made it clear that there was no time to worry about losing his captain and amulet.
“When a player like Messi leaves, it is difficult for everyone, it is normal, but we have to continue because we cannot change this situation,” Koeman told Juventus at the Joan Gamper Cup Sihou. “We have to play well, win and work harder. There are other players who can play a role in their position and play an important role in the team.”
But, now we don’t have Leo. We must look forward, look forward. ” The Dutchman gave Barcelona fans reason to be optimistic about next season. “We have signed Memphis Depay and he has proven today that he can be very effective,” Koeman explained. “The midfield needs more points and the team needs to improve.
The best players in the world will always be missed, but you have to accept it and start working. “It’s useless to think about the past, this team has a lot of promises.” Koeman was satisfied with the Barcelona team’s performance before the start of the new season.
“This is a very good result. As for football, we have reached a very good level,” Koeman said. “Neto is very good and we have taken another step forward. The guys who have participated in the Olympics have yet to come back, so when we get everyone back, things will be better.
“We are on the right track and we can perform well in the first game.”
