Koeman needs Memphis to debut earlier than planned: “Lots of Quality”

Ronald Koeman is in good mood leading up to his second season as FC Barcelona trainer. The Catalans won Saturday night from neighbouring Girona and Memphis Depay scored during his unofficial debut from a penalty.
The Orange International fell for Rey Manaj at the end of the first half. He has taken more minutes than planned, but he remains a player with high quality. He has shown that at times in this competition, Koeman is quoted by AS. Its good that theres more competition in the team now.
Koeman cant let his EK-goers — including Memphis and Frenkie de Jong — play whole games yet, but is satisfied with what he saw against Girona. They have proven to be a good team, trying to play football. Ive seen that from both sides and Im muy contento about my players.
Barcelona will play practice matches against VfB Stuttgart, RB Salzburg and Juventus in the coming weeks: the latter club is the opponent in the annual battle for the Troféu Joan Gamper. On August 15th, the new Primera Division season kicks off with a home game against Real Sociedad.
