Ronald Koeman talks title race, Super League, Dembele ahead of Villarreal clash


Ronald Koeman has managed to turn his tenure at Barcelona on its head this season after an exceptionally poor start. He has shown tactical flexibility, trust in youth, all with improved in-game management. Proof of the pudding lies in the Copa del Rey championship as Barça destroyed Athletic Bilbao 4-0 in the finals of the cup.

With the league title in sight, Barcelona must win all their remaining fixtures to be crowned champions of Spain. The next challenge? Villarreal away from home. Barça Universal covers Koeman’s pre-game presser ahead of the game vs the Yellow Submarine.

Q: “What your concerns for the game tomorrow?”

A: “Villarreal play very good football, they have very dangerous players at the top and it will be a very interesting game.”

Q: “What are your thoughts on the league as it stands right now?”

A: “We have seven games to go and for us, as for the other three teams that are there (Atlético Madrid, Real Madrid, Sevilla), it’s very important to win.”

Q: “Is the game against Villarreal the most difficult fixture you have left on schedule?”

A: “Each game has its difficulties, but I still think that a lot depends on ourselves. It’s not the most difficult away game because all of the away games are going to be very difficult. All teams have something to play for.”

Q: “Do you have any updates on the Super League?”

A: “Let’s leave the issue of the Super League. It’s not the right time and it’s not important.”

Q: “Any updates on Fati and Coutinho’s injuries?”

A: “Ansu and Coutinho have been absent for longer than we thought. I don’t know if they will be able to play a game before the end of the season.”

Q: “Dembele is coming off an injury into the squad list, does that mean he will start from the bench tomorrow?”

A: “Dembélé? All the players called up have the option to play from the beginning.”

Q: “Is your future at Barcelona guaranteed?”

A: “I see myself coaching this team next season as well, and I have a contract. The President has showed me his support.”

Q: “Is Barcelona the strongest contender for La Liga right now?”

A: “I don’t see any of the title contenders stronger than the others. It will be a fight to the end. We’ll see what happens.”
