Koeman does not find defeat right and points back to difficult situation Barรงa

Ronald Koeman acknowledges that FC Barcelona is going through a difficult period, but he does not think the defeat against Rayo Vallecano is justified. The Dutch trainer judges that his team cut himself in the fingers (1-0).
โ€œI think we had problems getting into the game for the first fifteen minutes, but from that moment on, we‘ve been in control,โ€ says Koeman at the press conference afterwards. โ€œWe had opportunities and that’s good, but we should have scored. That would have given us a boost, because we felt superior. Now the doubts are increasing, that‘s normal.โ€
Koeman can’
t explain the missed opportunities. Sergiรฑo Dest, among others, got a huge opportunity, while Memphis Depay missed a penalty kick. โ€œI can‘t complain about the team. We don’t lose because of bad attitude or bad play. Given the opportunities we have had, the result is not fair,โ€ says the Dutchman, who falls further behind in the Spanish title battle with Barรงa. โ€œMaybe other clubs have more balanced and physically stronger selections, but we‘ve shown that we can compete with them. Bad luck, injuries, they’re all excuses.โ€
โ€œWe showed a good level, but it‘s not enough,โ€ continues Koeman, who once again points to the difficult situation of the club. โ€œBarcelona is not doing well, the team has lost balance. We’ve lost key players. In recent years, our rivals have become stronger and we have not been able to do that.โ€
After the defeat, Spanish media writes that Koeman‘s position is slowly becoming untenable. There is even speculation about a quick dismissal. โ€œI don’t know if my job is in danger,โ€ responded the ex-national coach of Orange.
