Ronald Koeman hints at Aguero debut and tries to stay calm at Barça: ‘But that’s not easy’

With matches against Valencia, Dinamo Kiev and Real Madrid ahead, Ronald Koeman is starting an important week at FC Barcelona. Starting with the duel with Valencia (tomorrow at 9 p.m.). ,,We can still compete for the championship”, Koeman showed himself ambitiously at the press conference.

,,We had some bad luck with injuries, almost all attackers were injured. I am therefore very satisfied with the injured players who have returned,” Koeman analyzed in recent weeks. The last two games against Benfica (3-0) and Atlético Madrid (2-0) were lost. ,,But we are still fighting for the championship’, says Koeman, who with Barça finds himself in ninth place in La Liga with five points less than both Madrid competitors.

A win over Valencia is necessary not to let the rumors of a possible dismissal flare up again, Koeman also knows. ,,I’m used to people talking about my future, this is normal at a big club where there is always talk about the coach. It’s not the first time. Last year there were also times when everyone was talking about the coach. The chairman supported me and made things clear. But a coach has to win games. I don’t want to talk about the past anymore. I want to put energy into taking the team forward and doing what I think is best for Barca,” said the Dutch coach.

To continue: ,,I try to stay calm, which is not easy because a lot of things are happening. But you have to put energy into the things you have control over. You have to train and make the guys better, prepare for the game and win it. Now that guys are coming back, we’ll get better little by little. But there are still plenty of guys who are not at their best,” said Koeman, who again has Ansu Fati and Sergio Aguero at his disposal.

About the two: ,,Ansu needs time after being sidelined for many months. He can’t play three games yet. So we have to choose what is best for the team. Sergio has improved a lot lately. He is doing well, but he lacks physical and match rhythm. He will be in the squad. His talent is known and with a few minutes in his legs he will get even better.”
